Aldi has forayed into the furniture market in the past, selling writing desks, folding desks, shelving, and even chairs and futons. To the best of our knowledge, we don’t think Aldi has sold any type of wooden indoor-use cabinet before, so it was a pleasant surprise to see one in Aldi’s weekly ad in September of 2019.
What We Know:
The SOHL Furniture Accent Cabinet (Product Code: 58593) sold for $69.99 in September of 2019. It features two glass-fronted doors criss-crossed with a wooden lattice. It measures 31″ x 31.5″ x 13.7″ and the shelf measures 11″ D x 29″ W. The cabinet comes in a blue / teal color.
It’s not large; not even coming to waist height next to a typical adult, so it’s not going to have the storage capacity of a full-sized china cabinet or hutch. Still, it looks like a good option for storing a few pieces of serving ware, decor, or books. (I might be partial to using it for cookbook storage, if the shelves can handle that much weight.)
The cabinet comes with a two-year warranty, serviced by Fulfillment Services USA. We know this company well, as we had a drawn-out, generally lousy experience with them over our SOHL Furniture Writing Desk. We’ve found them to be unresponsive and hard to deal with (we had to enlist Aldi for help), so if you’re having problems with this cabinet, you may have to deal with them yourself.
What We Don’t Know:
While we know who services the warranty, we don’t know who makes the cabinet. Also, we don’t know how easily it assembles or how sturdy the finished product is, and we don’t know what the weight limit per shelf is.
