It's barbecues at the ready and a dust down of garden furniture, as new rules allow us to meet outdoors in groups of six or less. Yes folks, socialising is beginning to resume, and with this comes a sudden urgency to have our outdoor spaces looking spic and span.
Garden furniture is flying off the shelves at a rate of knots, as you'd expect, so it's no surprise to learn that Aldi's hanging egg chair, which launched again online on Easter Sunday, sold out within minutes for the third time this year. Luckily you can still snap up the Tesco egg chair for just £150.
Tesco egg chair
Whether you were one of the 70,000 virtual shoppers queuing to try and bag that Aldi chair, or you just want to add some more comfy seating to your garden or outdoor space, Tesco's own version of the chair is the perfect solution. For just £150, this rattan egg-shaped beauty will make lounging around a stylish affair.
We've seen celebs such as Mrs Hinch and Stacey Solomon showing us how it's done with similar versions in their own gardens. So get in on the action with this great addition to any garden seating ideas.
The one catch is that the chair is only available in stores. However, you will be able to find it in 100 Tesco stores across the UK.
It's worth checking your local store to see if the chair is in stock. We'd recommend you're quick, though, as it's likely to sell out just as fast as the Aldi design. We love its tall curvy design and comfy grey cushions – it looks like a chair that you could happily wile away the hours in.
