We love a good home buy that looks far more expensive than it actually is and Primark’s homeware range is a great place to find just these. And now that Primark stores are officially open again, it’s one of the first places we’re looking to for bargain homeware buys.
One of the latest additions to their line of fabulous homeware is a plush pink velvet storage stool and it’s flying off the shelves for obvious reasons. Firstly, it taps into the trend for luxe interiors, but its £24 price tag means anyone can inject a touch of glamour into their interior without breaking the bank. Secondly, not only does it look good, this piece is super practical, too: the seat is actually a lid which can be removed to reveal a secret storage space within – so handy.
The blush pink velvet covering is very on-trend, and combined with the sleek exposed gold legs it becomes a luxurious-looking focal point for any room in the house. It would make the ideal dressing table companion (use the secret storage space to hide away unsightly hairdryers, straighteners and more) or tuck it in the corner of a living room and voila – a stylish secret storage space and an extra seat for when guests come over.
In fact, people have been quick to spot that it’s an uncanny dupe for a very similar-looking MADE storage stool, which retails at £129 – that’s a huge price difference of £105.
As always, Primark don’t sell their products online and word has it that only a few stores are stocking the on-trend homeware item, making it all the more exclusive. The stores reported to be stocking the velvet stool are Birmingham High Street, Bristol, Cardiff, Exeter, Glasgow Argyle Street, Liverpool and Newcastle – if you live in the vicinity of one of these locations, you’re in luck!
