Aldi is selling a luxe, velvet bar stool for under £40 right now and customers are raving about it.

Aldi is renowned for its inexpensive food, bargain furniture (opens in new tab), and incredible gadget dupes (opens in new tab). But now the store is offering a stylish and contemporary velvet bar stool.

The Kirkton House Teal Velvet bar stool is available online for £39.99. Measuring in at 35cm x 43cm x 62 cm, it’s the perfect size to fit under a kitchen island or breakfast bench.

'Love them, love them, love them! They go perfectly in our new kitchen, are the perfect height for our island, and look so much more expensive,' one rave reviewer penned. 

Another shopper wrote, 'Fabulous! This is really lovely stool in a stunning colour. Very comfortable, too.'

An even more enthusiastic shopper said, 'Stunning loved the first one so much, I bought a 2nd and don’t even really have room for them- but I’ll make it as they are super!'

Velvet bar stools are in high demand, with many retailers selling their own version - which is lucky because we predict the Aldi option will sell out very quickly. 

The Zeta Bar Stool from Dunelm is a fab alternative to Aldi's, looking seriously similar and costing just a little more at £59.
