EDITOR’S NOTE: Updated for 2023.
Back in 2019, Aldi released a little piece of furniture called the SOHL Furniture Accent Cabinet. It came in teal, and it became an instant sensation among the Aldi superfan crowd. Pictures popped up all over social media of people putting their little teal cabinet in all parts of the house.
Aldi seemed to see what a hit it had on its hands, because the company has since released a steady parade of SOHL Furniture Accent furniture. First it was offering the cabinet in different colors, then selling a table, and then a single-door cabinet.
Now Aldi is releasing its latest new piece of furniture in this mini-line: an accent bench.
What We Know:
The SOHL Furniture Accent Bench is an Aldi Find, which means it’s only in stores for a short time. Once it’s gone, it’s gone, and you won’t be able to find it in stores until it comes back, probably the next year. Aldi doesn’t ship products online, either, so if you can’t find it in the store, you won’t be able to get it otherwise.
As of early 2023, the bench costs $99.99. That’s actually a decrease from the 2022 price of $129.99.
What We Don’t Know:
Aldi hasn’t offered much information on this bench. There is no information in the Aldi digital ad about it, so we don’t have any specs or dimensions, any numbers on weight limit, or any other features. Aldi also doesn’t list any warranty information about the bench on its warranty site. We expect this information will be on the bench box itself — and we expect the bench will have a warranty — but until the product physically hits stores, we won’t be able to learn more about any of these things.
In addition, we haven’t put it through the paces ourselves, so we don’t know how easily it assembles or how well it holds up. We created this open thread for people to share their experiences.
