B&Q’s affordable velvet chair is all over Instagram

Velvet has been one of the biggest interiors trends for a good while now. It’s the perfect fabric to add a luxe twist to your home, and larger pieces such as chairs and sofas have been particularly popular – and are always at the top of our wish lists. The problem is that these designs can really set you back some cash and many of us don’t have a huge amount to spend right now.

However, the high street and several supermarket retailers have thankfully been answering our prayers by releasing their own versions of the covetable velvet chair spotted all over Instagram, the latest of which is from none other than B&Q.

Turio Burnt Orange Velvet Effect Chair, £78, B&Q

B&Q’s Turio chair is causing quite the stir online right now, and for good reason. The sleek design is a mere £78, making it a far more affordable option for velvet lovers. The chair comes in burnt orange, forest green and navy blue; all of which look luxurious and rich.

What’s more, the store also has a matching foot stool in each colour to accompany the chair — and these are only £28. While this already sounds like a steal, you can actually currently buy both for a mere £100 — all you have to do is add them both to your basket and the discount will be applied at the checkout.

Reviews online of the Turio chair really speak for themselves, with shoppers praising the affordable price tag and chic appearance of the design: ‘The chair is well made and easy enough to put together. For the price it is good value for money and would easily match a chair costing twice the price,’ wrote one, while another added: ‘It’s beautiful and we love how comfy it is! Well worth the money.’

Other popular velvet chair dupes in the past have included designs from B&M and Aldi; both of which were a dead ringer for the popular Oliver Bonas style.

Coming in seven colours, OB’s Flora Scalloped Velvet Armchair is the epitome of luxury, but its price tag of £395 may require saving towards.
