It’s a truth universally acknowledged that Aldi’s special buy section is the place to bag a bargain.
It recently launched a long hot water bottle, which we’re touting as a winter must-have, and it slashed the price of a Salter coffee machine that’s bound to help get your mornings off to a flying start. But, that’s not all, because it’s now excelled itself once again.
Owing to the success of its velvet scalloped armchair, which sold out almost instantly, the budget-friendly retailer has extended the collection to now include a velvet scalloped bed, both as a normal bed frame and a space-saving ottoman style. The designs are available in double or king-size and you have the choice of velvet in pink, navy or grey depending on your interiors.
Thanks to the current Cottagecore trend, which is all about adding a traditional English countryside feel to your home, scalloped detailing and velvet fabrics are very in vogue, meaning this new piece of furniture will enhance your bedroom decor, but luckily it won’t make too much of a dent in your bank account.
The beds are available exclusively to buy online, with the price starting from just £249.99. And it is a collection to get excited about.

Aldi scallop bed
A designer aesthetic at a supermarket price is bound to get anyone excited, and when we first saw the price of this scalloped bed frame we had to double-take. Featuring a shell-shaped, scalloped headboard with deep vertical pleat detailing, it resembles the Oliver Bonas Flora azure double headboard, which costs £495, but will set you back a mere £249.99 for a double, and you can get the king-size for an extra £50. We did the maths and that works out as half the price for an entire bed frame! While it’ll go with just about any bedding, we’d style it with this Soak & Sleep classic quilted cotton bedspread (Soak & Sleep, £60), which featured in our guide to the best bedspreads, and we think the colours will really compliment one another.

Aldi ottoman scallop bed
No matter how big your home is, there is never enough storage space, so allow Aldi’s ottoman scallop bed to solve those woes. It has the same scallop design, but it’s ideal for small spaces since the base lifts up to reveal, what we think will be, a generous storage compartment. Conceal all manner of clutter and leave your bedroom clean and clear. If you’ve had your eye on the Made.com Delia bed, which costs £749, we think it’s a great alternative since Aldi’s new design costs £349.99 for a double or £399.99 for a king.
