As someone looking to buy a pink accent chair myself I know they don't come cheap. We had a conversion just the other day at HQ, about armchairs often not being much cheaper than sofas – why so expensive?!

One such similar design from Oliver Bonas is the Flora Scalloped chair for £395. Another from Next is the Stella Chair for a more reasonable £250. There's no question this design at The Range is very reasonable priced.
