New in at Dunelm for April 2021
Black Metal Clothes Rail with Shelving
This space-savvy clothes rail even boasts shelving so that you can use it to store folded jeans or t-shirts, too. It has plenty of space for hanging clothes as well as three shelves, one of which is up high for storing things out of your way. There’s also a shelf for your shoes at the bottom. A must-have if you need a wardrobe but don’t fancy spending half of your pay cheque on one.
Tala Set of 3 Textile Bowl Covers
These eco-friendly food covers are a great replacement for cling film or tin foil as they can be washed and used over and over again. They’re also quite cute so they’ll make your fridge look pretty, while they come in all different sizes to fit all shaped bowls. They are made from pure organic cotton, beeswax, tree resin, coconut oil, and the elastic band is made out of natural rubber.
Kindness Always Cushion Natural
This lovely cushion would be a very cute addition to a nursery, perhaps on a nursing chair. It’s embroidered with the words ‘kindness always’ and is natural in colour so as to fit in with your decor.
Matilda Velvet Two Seater Sofa
If you have space for a smaller sofa in your living room, or you want a sofa for your bedroom or guest room, then this one from Dunelm is a bargain at under £200. It comes in a range of colours, it has a curved back and gold legs, and the velvet it’s upholstered in is made from 100% recycled materials made using no less than 52 recycled plastic bottles. A true bargain!
Elias Natural 100% Cotton Throw
Well, we are most definitely buying this gem to pop at the end of our bed! This throw looks like it would be hundreds of pounds worth but it’s just £35. It’s made of 100% cotton, features a tufted detailing while it’s neutral in colour so would be perfect for a minimalist bedroom or a room with minimal colour.
Elements Ceramic Vase 23cm Butterscotch
Make a statement in your modern living room, bedroom or hallway with this large but lovely vase. It’s a gorgeous terracotta colour, while we think it would look lovely with artificial flowers inside.
Bradford Ceiling Fitting Matt Black
We think this dramatic ceiling light would look best hung over a dining table – to light up your table, and the room. Although plain, it’s a great addition to minimalist homes or if you are looking for lighting that won’t distract eyes from your lovely table and chairs. Alternatively, we’re imagining it above a kitchen island and we are loving it. It’s also a bargain at just £35.
St Lucia 4 Seater Grey Cube Dining Set
This garden furniture set is perfect for smaller gardens since it all tucks under the table neatly, to become a cube. This way it takes up less precious floor space while still seating four people for dinner. The table is glass-topped, the set itself is made from rattan so it’s weather-resistant while seat pads come included, and it comes in your choice of grey or brown.
Tribal Natural Basket Small
This woven storage basket is perfect for holding anything from blankets to a plant, and we think it would look great in a living room, nursery or even in a hallway. It boasts a tribal print to make it stand out in your home.
Artificial Foliage Trellis
Hoping to cover up an otherwise plain or ugly wall in your garden? This trellis can help you do the job. It’s bursting with faux ivy, it’s made of bamboo and plastic and you can leave it outside year-round. You can also use it to make a fence higher, or just to jazz one up.
French Cane 3 Tier Shelving Unit
Okay, we are in LOVE with this shelving unit! And, it definitely looks like it should cost more than £115. Use it for shoes, books or even toys, and it’s also handmade. *adds to basket immediately*
Trabella Roma 4 Seater Bench Rectangular Dining Set
This four-seater dining set could easily seat six if you bought extra chairs. It comes in white, brown or grey and it’s made of polypropylene so it can be left outside year-round. Perfect if you are on a budget but want to dine al fresco this summer. Pop it atop an outdoor rug on your patio and you’re all set. You could even accessorize with seat cushions.
Industrial Large Circle Shelf
A total bargain for £15, this large shelf would look lovely hung pretty much anywhere in the home. From a bathroom to a hallway or even a living room. Use it to display your most favourite things, from photos to books to succulents and candles. An easy way to spruce up an otherwise plain wall.

Montana Steel High Fire Bowl
If you are investing in a fire put this year, to socialise outside and be warm while doing so, then this one from Dunelm is more than worth a look. It boasts space underneath for storing your logs while it comes with a fireguard so you can use it around children or pets. It’s made of steel and has a black finish, making it not just a practical addition to your garden, but a stylish one, too.
Vivian Velvet Dining Chair
If you want some new dining chairs that will make a statement, then these velvet ones can do the trick. They come in a range of colours, they are scalloped at the back and padded to make them comfortable, while their legs are brass-tipped. Unique doesn’t quite cut it!
Missed out last month? Here’s what was new in at Dunelm for March 2021
Hanging String of Pearls in Basket
Bring the outdoors in with help from this faux String of Pearls plant. If you struggle to keep house plants alive like us, then this is a great buy. Hang it in your bedroom, kitchen, hallway or wherever you like since it needn’t be watered or have any sunlight. It sits inside a lovely woven basket, too.
Reversible Cotton Runner
This stylish runner would be a great addition to a hallway or bedroom – at the bottom of your bed, of course. It comes in a range of colours but terracotta is by far our favourite. It also has tassels and it’s reversible to extend its life. No need to worry about putting it in a high-traffic area…
Amalfi Olive Platter
Use this lovely serving plate for your bruschetta, canapes or whatever else you like to serve up in the garden in the summertime. Not just pretty, too, as it’s dishwasher-safe and microwave-safe – in fact, it’d make a lovely gift.
Buy now: Amalfi Olive Platter, £18, Dunelm
Banana Leaf Table Runner
If you are looking for some new tableware, ready for when we are allowed guests over for dinner, then this runner will look lovely atop your table. It’s made from natural dried banana leaves and natural banana leaves that have been woven together, making it eco-friendly and compostable after use. Why not buy it for your Easter table? It comes in two sizes…
London Matt Black Toilet Roll Holder and Shelf
Small bathroom? In search of a toilet roll holder that’s small? This one won’t take up any precious floor space, and it features a ledge to pop your things on – think: a candle, room spray, hand wash… The word practical comes to mind.
Ash Wood Bath Rack
We love this plain bath rack – it’s basic yet it still does the job, and it’s easy to clean, too. It’s made from ash wood. Use it in your bathroom for display purposes, even when you aren’t in the tub, and pop a diffuser or candle, some faux plants and your favourite bath stuff on there. It’ll look lovely…
Buy now: Ash Wood Bath Rack, £15, Dunelm
Elements Black Hexagonal Outdoor Wall Planter
Spruce up a plain garden wall (or fence) with this planter – it can hold real or faux greenery, and it’s made from 100 per cent iron. We think it would look great in a front garden or back garden. An easy and surprisingly cheap way to spruce up your garden for SS21, we think!
Olsen Diamond Floor Cushion
If you need an extra seat in your living room or garden for when guests come over, then a floor cushion is a perfect buy. This one comes in two colours and it features a handle for easy moving around your floor. It’s made from 100 per cent cotton, with geometrical bobble detailing. Lovely!
Leaf Planter 15cm Black
This small planter is great for minimalist homes – we love it in a bedroom or living room. Pop a faux or real plant in there and place it somewhere it’ll be sure to catch eyes. Perhaps afront a statement wall?
Buy now: Leaf Planter 15cm Black, £8, Dunelm
The Adah Throw comes in three colourways – grey, natural or rust. The rust is our favourite to add a pop of colour to your living room. There are also matching cushions and draught excludes available…
Buy now: Adah Throw, £25, Dunelm
Pineapple Elephant Caspian White Waffle 100% Cotton Duvet Cover and Pillowcase Set
Waffle bedding is our go-to because it’s so easy to maintain – you needn’t get the iron out. Treat yourself to a new bedding set for spring and sleep soundly this season. This set is 100 per cent cotton and is waffled on one side, but plain on the other. A great buy for a busy bedroom that’s already got a lot going on…
Set of 2 Mink Foldable Cord Storage Boxes
Perfect for an IKEA Kallax unit, these storage boxes are foldable, too. They are covered in a felt material to add texture to your home, and they are great for storing everything from toys to electronics – essentially, anything you don’t want on show in your home.
Ceramic Face Vase
We’re obsessed with this plain vase – whether for fresh flowers or dried. With two faces drawn on the front, it’s large and it’ll make a statement. Pop it on your coffee table.
Buy now: Ceramic Face Vase, £12, Dunelm
Peach Real Touch Phalaenopsis 3 Pack
Fake it till you make it and buy these stunning Phalaenopsis from Dunelm. They come in a pack of three – because three are all you need to wow – and they’ll last year-round.
Nancy Dressing Table
This dressing table is compact with a spacious drawer to hide your products. It’s great for Skandi-style homes, while it has tapered legs and it’s handleless. Great for smaller spaces, or for those who don’t use their dressing table enough to warrant it taking up a lot of space (and costing a lot of money).
Buy now: Nancy Dressing Table, £75, Dunelm
White Koppla Plug-in Wall Light
We love the hanging bedside light trend, but why are they always so expensive to buy? Not anymore, thanks to Dunelm – this one comes in six colourways and it’s simple to fit. It has a two-metre cable, too.
