When we saw that Aldi's famous scalloped armchair was back in store we didn't need to look twice. A cult favourite, boasting plush scalloped edges and generous cushioning, this armchair is a winner in our books. What's more, the velvet storage stools that are also available in the range are tempting us to give our interiors a serious refresh. 

Although the aesthetic of these beaut pieces would suggest high-brow designer furniture, the prices reflect the usual bargains available at Aldi. So, keep scrolling to discover the purse-pleasing price tag and check out the colourways available.

Not only is the inviting upholstered seat tempting us, but we're also on board with the way the design boasts tapered gold legs. We're getting a bit of an Art Deco vibe. We're even envisioning how we would style ours... Picture this: The Navy Velvet Scalloped Armchair, £79.99, the Kirkton House Velvet Storage Stool, £24.99 and a statement floor lamp. Obviously finished off with a bit of indoor foliage because you know we're loyal supporters of the hero house plant.

Check out those beaut colourways! You can get your Kirkton House Velvet Storage Stool, £24.99 in a choice of pink, navy or royal blue. We are huge fans of the way that functionality meets style in this piece, providing a healthy storage space that doubles up as an occasional seat or footstool. Oh, and the turnover lid also converts the stool to a small table that has a wipeable top. Is there anything that this staple furniture piece doesn't offer?
