Aldi's velvet scalloped chair is back – better than ever in pink and grey!

All the style without the spend

Shopping alert! The stunning pink Aldi velvet chair is back and it's available in grey and blue too!

The Ideal Home team know only too well how coveted these scalloped occasional chairs are right now. Velvet chairs are the accessory to add a touch of luxe to any living room ideas.

The stylish new chairs are currently available to pre-order exclusively online. We haven't been this excited about an Aldi Specialbuy since the Aldi window mirror. The race is on now to all bag one of these velvet armchairs!

Pink, blue or grey? Decisions, decisions.

This Kirkton House velvet cocktail chair is the perfect addition to a living room or starting point for pink bedroom ideas. This latest design features stylish brass legs and a more smoothed out shell design than previous versions of the chair.

The velvet upholstered chair is a touch of glamour for any space. It features a lovely shell design and sturdy gold legs. It is also available in grey and navy.

The popular scalloped armchairs are available in lovely blush pink, navy and grey. It emulates a touch of the 1920s glamour thanks to the plush velvet upholstery and the curved scalloped design.

Measuring approximately 75 cm in height and 78 in width, perfectly sizeable for all spaces. If you're brainstorming small living room ideas this chair will definitely make a splash. 

Last year's Aldi velvet chair

Last year Aldi offered the stylish chair with wooden legs in March and glitzy metallic legs in September. As you can see below the chair is a dead-ringer for the iconic Oliver Bonas scalloped chair.

The original version did come in with a slightly lower price tag of just £79.99, however, this year's version is still a steal in comparison.

The Oliver Bonas version (left) is well-known by interiors fans, often popping up on influencers' Instagram feeds. With its scalloped design, featured on the seat and back, its lush shade of pink velvet and the gold-tipped feet – it's easy to see why it is so admired.

It has been on my personal wish list for an age, but with a higher price point, it's a dream buy, more than a realistic one.

Remember, shoppers will have to be quick as with all Specialbuys, once they’re gone, they’re gone!
