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.
