Aldi's Trendy Boucle Chair Is Going Viral For How Affordable It Is

Known for its reasonable prices and exclusive grocery items, Aldi has branched out to offer various indoor/outdoor furniture pieces like the designer-inspired Boucle Round Fabric Swivel Chair. While boucle swivel chairs are no new design, the popularity of the German-owned store's model is rapidly rising. So, how has this simple, laidback chair gone viral? Many TikTok users have recently expressed their experience in discovering the bargain chair. In one such post, TikTok user @shivvvvvvy shows herself purchasing the chic, vintage-style chair at the store in (Melbourne) Australia, priced at only $199.

Not only is the chair a bargain, but it also has a simple design that blends well among a variety of interior designs. Manufactured by SOHL Furniture, the trending chair is furnished with a soft, boucle fabric, and is available in an airy white shade. Another TikTok user, @chantelmackerness explained that she loves it for its aesthetic brilliance amidst a relaxed, minimal design. Aldi's version seems to be a hit with customers for being both fashionable and inexpensive.

Aldi's boucle chair is a steal compared to other brands

Made famous by Coco Chanel herself, boucle furniture is making a statement to a new generation of customers. With its luxurious, nubby texture and simple eloquence, Aldi's boucle chair appears modishly cozy as it features curvy armrests and rotates on a 360-degree swiveling wood base. Compared to similar models, like the Gwyneth for $999 via CB2 or Wayfair's version for $439.99 that comes with a toss pillow, both are noted as being upholstered with a poly-blend boucle-like fabric, whereas Aldi's private-label selection is noted as premium boucle fabric. Additionally, there's a matching storage ottoman of the same quality for $100. Overall, Aldi's option appears to be worth its competitive price.

It may be pertinent to nab either one of these items before they disappear, according to @shivvvvvvy (via TikTok). However, Aldi's online purchase options for the chair and ottoman are presently set for zip codes only within Australia.  Although, if these reasonable price tags are sustainable, hopefully, we'll see the chair make its way to the States soon.
