Hold the phone and stop the press, all our homeware dreams have been answered by the interiors geniuses at Aldi. The budget supermarket’s pink velvet scalloped cocktail chair that is virtually identical in almost every way to one sold by Oliver Bonas earlier this year – minus the £395 price tag – is back.
Yep, Aldi’s much-loved £79.99 version is back and it’s just as sumptuous and luxurious as its OB counterpart. In fact, this time it’s even more luxe-looking as the wooden legs have been swapped for metallic gold ones.
In soft velvet upholstering, the chair comes in both pink and deep navy blue. A statement, or accent, chair is an ideal way to inject some glamour and style to a room and will instantly update any existing decor. The pink version will command attention, a real scene-stealer of a piece, while the dark blue will subtly integrate with the rest of a room, offering a touch of elegance without clashing with any pre-existing colour schemes.
‘Adding an accent piece to your home is an easy way to bring an instant touch of glamour,’ reads the online description. ‘This Pink Velvet Scalloped Armchair is the perfect addition to any room in the home. With its glamourous gold legs, this style will fit in with any decor whilst the velvet look and feel of the upholstered seat will encourage you to take the time for some much needed relaxation.’
The scalloped cocktail chair has been having a moment for some time now, with many high-end homeware designers and brands, from Oliver Bonas to Wayfair and Le Maison Chic, churning out their own versions, making Aldi’s version a real steal in terms of price.
Even Dunelm’s own version at £149 can’t match Aldi’s jaw-dropping price, and as we know, soft pink is still trending for interiors, meaning this chair ticks a lot of boxes for anyone looking to quickly upgrade their home on a budget. We’ve already placed our orders…
Part of the latest drop of homewares for autumn in the supermarket’s infamous Specialbuys range (where the saying ‘once it’s gone it’s gone’ really comes into its own), the chair is exclusively available online. However, just as the chair caused quite the stir earlier this year, the new iteration has too and thus both colours have already sadly sold out. Not to worry though, it’s such a popular item for Aldi that we’re sure they’ll restock it again soon, so keep your eyes peeled.
In the meantime, the matching velvet storage stools are still in stock, and each comes in at a purse-friendly £24.99. With matching gold hairpin legs, choose from the blush pink, navy or royal blue.
