In the fall of 2019, Aldi introduced a little limited-edition teal accent cabinet that quickly became a cult favorite. The cabinets featured glass doors crisscrossed with wood latticework and looked like something you might find at a higher-end retailer for a lot more money. The Aldi cabinets were highly sought after but weren’t the easiest things to find in stores.
A year later, in the fall of 2020, the teal cabinet returned to stores for a short time, much to the delight of Aldi superfans. Not long after that, also in the fall of 2020, Aldi sold a teal console table to match the teal cabinet. While the table was popular, it didn’t quite match the enthusiasm shoppers had for the cabinet.
Now, in February of 2021, Aldi is selling another accent cabinet. This one looks just like the teal accent cabinet, except that it’s white. It’s scheduled to hit Aldi stores the week of February 10th, 2021.
The white SOHL Furniture Accent Cabinet cost $69.99 in February of 2021, which is the same price the teal cabinet has always been. Similar cabinets at retailers such as Target often cost twice as much, which helps to explain why the Aldi version is so popular.
This cabinet is an Aldi Find (Special Buy), which means it’s only in stores for a short time. Aldi doesn’t sell its specials online, so once this sells out at your local store, it’s gone until the next time Aldi decides to bring it back to stores.
The white Aldi cabinet has the same exterior dimensions as the previous teal cabinets: 31″ x 31.5″ x 13.7″. As the dimensions indicate, this is not a large cabinet; it’s just big enough to provide an “accent” in whatever room you put it in.
These cabinets can be placed in a living room, family room, hallway, entryway, dining room, kitchen, or just about anywhere. They are useful for storing books, cookbooks, décor, craft supplies, or whatever you want to put in them. They’re a good place to put a house plant, baskets with house keys and mail, or a lamp. We’ve even seen some Aldi fans purchase two cabinets and put them side by side to make a stand for a flat-screen television. Or, in the recent Aldi ad this white cabinet showed up in, it was displayed as a coffee station ideal for a kitchen or dining room, with mugs, a sugar canister, and coffee inside, and with a single-serve coffee maker and other caffeine-related supplies on top.
In the past, this cabinet has come with a warranty serviced by Fulfillment Services USA, which we have experience dealing with for a desk we purchased from Aldi a few years ago. In fact, most SOHL Furniture products sold at Aldi have warranty service provided by Fulfillment Services.
We found Fulfillment Services to be unresponsive and difficult to deal with regarding some minor problems with our desk, and we had to reach out to Aldi’s customer service for help. We’ve seen mixed reviews from Aldi customers who have purchased the SOHL Furniture Accent Cabinet, with some people reporting the cabinet assembles easily, while others reported they had the wrong parts or that the pieces didn’t fit together correctly, and they were experiencing difficulty contacting the warranty provider.
Regardless, we expect this white cabinet to be popular when it hits store shelves, just like its teal sibling. So if you have your heart set on buying one, we recommend arriving early on the day it comes out.
Hi, the white cabinet that was suppose to come out on sale today at Aldi did not . I couldn’t find it at any store. Do you know what happened to the non delivery of this item to Aldi stores? Thanks
Sometimes deliveries are delayed, but also the cabinets sold out quickly in some locations. The best way to find out what happened would be to ask an employee at your local store.
Ok, Thank you
I have been to four different Aldi stores and the cabinet is in none of them
They have one on amazon for 98.99 I just bought myself one and free delivery and if you have amazon , or credit card credits you can use that off.
Can you leave a link to the one you purchased on Amazon or give a photo with info? I’ve been looking all day lol. TIA!
I never saw this cabinet at Aldi’s It’s August 2021 do you know if they are planning to bring it back? Oh yea, how about their standing mixer, do you know anything on this item.
You’d need to ask Aldi those questions: https://www.aldireviewer.com/contact-aldi/
I just bought the gray cabinet in Gray in St. Louis, Mo. My 14 year old son and I put it together. It is sturdy and a bit heavy I LOVE IT!!! I bought for a cute Herb 🪴 cabinet as I am an Herbalist. I plan on painting different stencils of different herbs on the glass panes. It’s beautiful! Very happy with my Aldi find!
Just left post on Awesome gray cabinet find in St. Louis, Mo. didn’t leave my name🤦🏾♀️
I purchased two grey cabinets back in August 2022. I wanted to put one on both sides of my fire place.
Make sure you check all the pieces, including hardware. One piece did not have the holes drilled into it and although I am super handy, it was not something I or anyone else could drill. I also noticed a few bruises here and there on other pieces AND one of the boxes did not have all of the hardware. So, I purchased a third box and got all the pieces I needed and then returned one as damaged.
The cabinet is heavy duty. The only thing I am not a fan of are the door hinges. Due to the cheapness of the hinge I would not recommend opening and closing the doors on a regular basis. The hinge screws can strip easily. You can install the door by yourself but you should really have two people to make sure the door is level. I stacked some books on the floor to help keep the door level as I installed it. You might need to tighten and loosen top and bottom hinge to get it the way you want it.
If you want to add lighting, I recommend lights that you can stick under the top of the cabinet and under the shelf. I put the lights closer to the doors so the light would hit the front of whatever I had on display. The lights I purchased at Aldi and although powered by AAA batteries they have a remote and are adjustable.
I found peel and stick wallpaper at Lowes and added that to the board that slides in as the back. I did not hammer that piece in place in incase I want to remove the wallpaper and I did not fasten the top of the cabinet so I could lift it off easily if I want to change the wallpaper.
I’d post a picture if I could. I’m happy with how they fit in the space. I actually just purchased the off white cabinets because they will look better and I’ll sell the grey ones.
Love this in white so I went back and bought another one and 2 single door cabinets. I haven’t built them yet but if they are like the first one I’ll live them
