In the world of interiors, pink + velvet has been a winning combination for some time now. It can bring a touch of sumptuous femininity, warmth and colour to any room, so it’s no surprise that all the home furnishing greats have coped onto the trend.
But it’s not just the big guns (read: expensive brands) that have noticed the trend. Aldi’s latest homeware range also features plenty of pink, velvety goodness, including a stylish ottoman that is the ultimate dupe for an extremely similarly looking product from MADE.com. The main difference? The price tag – while MADE’s blush-toned version comes in at £199, Aldi’s upholstered ottoman comes in at the much more purse-friendly price of £79.99.
So what’s to love about it? Firstly, that on-trend dusty blush pink hue, but also the sleek, minimalistic, fuss-free style that makes for a seriously modern look. Aldi have also nailed MADE’s exposed rounded brass legs that finish off the piece of furniture to be a thing of beauty.
Both ottomans make the perfect addition to the end of a bed, doubling up as both a seat (or somewhere to put your clothes at the end of the day) and a secret storage space for hiding away unsightly items, but when one costs less than half the price of the other, we know which one we’ll be going for.
The Aldi ottoman is exclusively available online and also comes in a gorgeous teal as well as pale grey, however the latter has already sold out, which is no surprise. So if your eye is on the pink or teal we suggest moving fast to secure yours before they’re all gone.
And if you were lucky enough to bag yourself one of Aldi’s sellout pink velvet scalloped chairs before they disappeared quicker than we can say ‘Specialbuy’, then this ottoman would make the perfect matching accompaniment.
The velvet ottomans are £79.99 each and are available to buy online now at Aldi.com.
