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.
The original cabinet was teal. The “teal cabinet,” as customers started calling it, proved so popular that Aldi brought it back in September of 2020. What’s more, in early 2021, Aldi also sold the accent cabinet in a more neutral white color, and in late 2021 Aldi sold a gray version.
What We Know:
The SOHL Furniture Accent Cabinet (Product Code: 58593) sold for $69.99 in 2019, 2020, and early 2021, but sold for $10 more — $79.99 — in late 2021 and early 2022. Then it sold for more — $89.99 — in January of 2023. Even with the increased price, this is far less than any accent cabinets we could find online, either on Amazon or on places like Target or Walmart. It’s an Aldi Find, which means that once it’s gone, it’s gone. Aldi does not ship them online.
Aldi has never sold all three colors at the same time, instead rotating through them.
All three colors are identical in terms of design and dimensions. They feature two glass-fronted doors criss-crossed with a wooden lattice. The exterior of each cabinet measures 31″ x 31.5″ x 13.7″ and the shelf measures 11″ D x 29″ W. It’s not large — less than 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, décor, or books. (I might be partial to using it for cookbook storage, if the shelves can handle that much weight.) I’ve also seen some Aldi fans put two cabinets side by side to create a stand for a flat-screen television.
The cabinets come with a warranty (it varies by cabinet, but typically 2 or 3 years), 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.
Do you have experience with Aldi’s SOHL Furniture Accent Cabinet, either in the teal, white, or gray varieties? Share your thoughts in the comments.
I just bought this accent cabinet yesterday at Aldis.It was well boxed and all the pieces were there.It took awhile for me to put it together and that was the only negative I have about it.It is absolutely beautiful and looks great in my living room
Can you please tell me what tools I willneed to put the accent cabinet together,Thank you so much,there is no man around to do this,lol
I’m guessing you probably only need a screwdriver with a set of bits. Most Aldi furniture doesn’t require special tools beyond a screwdriver to assemble. Good luck!
I have this cabinet and I love it in my kitchen. It did take a while to put together but worth it!!
Phillips screw driver. That’s it.
I bought this product 9/11/19 and have not been able to fully assemble. The inside lip of the bottom shelf (not visible in picture with closed cabinets doors) sits too far forward not allowing the glass cabinet doors to fully close. We have called and emailed the support number provided and have not received assistance. We did not receive a callback when we left a voicemail. We did receive a response to our email asking for the part number which we had already provided within our email to the company. Extremely disappointed in the customer service from this company and it is unlikely that we will buy another SOHL Furniture product in the future.
Our experience with that warranty company has also been pretty terrible — we had to seek out Aldi to help us pressure the warranty company before the warranty company would do anything. I’m very sorry that you’ve had to deal with this, too.
I bought this cabinet also and the hinges aren’t right for the doors to close. Very disappointed.
I bought mine in 2019 and I finally moved and I am putting it together and the hinges seem to not be the ones for this product. Lovely cabinet but it’s a pain in the ass to assemble with the wrong parts provided.
You can go to the Aldi store you purchased it at and they’ll help you
It looks like the lip of the cabinet was put into the jig upside and it appears as others are having the same issue. I’m assuming a batch was just put through the machinary facing the wrong way and after more than 2 weeks of repeated attempts to reach the company I have not had any success getting this resolved. I’ll be disassembling and returning to ALDI this weekend. Very disappointing.
I had the same issue. The cabinet does not close and one of my knobs does not work with the screw provided
I scored a cabinet in September 2020 and had to return it because it was damaged in box. Considering my store only got 2 and one was bad, really makes me question the quality of the cabinets.
I just open the box and all the component parts are missing. Very frustrating. I did contact fulfillmentservicesusa.com about obtaining the parts. If no help I will just return it to the ALDI here. Very disappointed.
I love this cabinet! The quality of it is way better than I would have ever imagined for $70. It was simple to put together and all of the pieces were there. I’m trying to decide if I need another!
I bought the same 2 door cabinet Having issues with the back panel is too long Cants get the countertop to go on flush to surface. Not to happy. As the checkout lady told me, when purchased it, not to bring it back to the store
I just bought it 9/10/22
I don’t see why you wouldn’t be able to take it back to Aldi for a refund. Your other option is to contact the company that provides the warranty service.
We just purchased this Accent Cabinet from ALDI yesterday Sept 14. This morning we were going to put it together and noticed that the two sides were the same. They were marked #3 & #4 but they were both #3. Returned it to ALDI today for a refund. Wife was disappointed.
I just assembled the cabinet and it took a while but I was eventually sucessful. The instructions could have been more detailed so it probably took me longer to assemble than it should have. Needed a Phillips screwdriver. Only real complaint is that the back panel is two pieces, taped together, and the color doesn’t match between the panels. Hoping once I put things in the cabinet, no one will be able to see the difference. All in all, for $70, a very good cabinet that looks great! No regrets.
I took everything out of the Box in there are no instructions now what?
I got no instructions either 🙁
I can’t see how the doors would fit, does the bottom piece with the lip on it face up or down? It looked like the lip should be up, but then the doors won’t fit.. Help?
Down. Lip down
We purchased this cabinet but when we opened the box the top piece was broken. Called and emailed the number, as instructed, but no one responded to our voicemails or emails. Terrible customer service. We’re returning it to the store today.
Help I have a Bolt No Idea how this works number B.
Received 2 #4 side pieces and not the #3 side piece. Have called and left several messages but no response. Email address doesn’t work. Will probably be returning to Aldi for a refund. Too bad as it looked like a nice cabinet. I see above somebody received 2 #3’s and no #4 (that person must have packed this one as well)…..
Bought this cabinet on September 10, 2020 and put it together today. All the parts were there but no instructions. My husband and I worked on it together and had it up and ready to use in about a half an hour. Fun project and puzzle to fit. Love the end product sturdy and functional.
Okay sitting here putting the double door cabinet together. Time to put the hinges on. Can someone please explain how they go on?
My husband had an issue with the doors not closing and thought it was the hinges but the shelf needed to be reversed so doors could shut. Hope this helps!
Genius!! You just saved me from some serious frustration. EVERYONE HAVING ISSUES WITH THE DOORS try this!!
I’m trying to figure out how to install the hinges also. Did you figure it out?
I would also like to know.
It looks great but the instructions for putting it together are rather vague. I also can not figure out how to put the doors on correctly with the hinges because there is a huge gap between the door and the body of the cabinet
HI I WAS LOOKING FOR ANOTHER WHITE CABINET 2GLASS DOORS AND 3 DRAWS PLEASE
HI I WAS LOOKING FOR ANOTHER WHITE CABINET 2GLASS DOORS AND 3 DRAWS PLEASE I HAVE A PHOTO BUT NOWHERE TO SEND IT TO ON THIS SITE CAN YOU HELP ME PLEASE
If you can’t find it in stores, you’re out of luck. Aldi doesn’t ship it’s products online.
I bought a 58593 cabinet and it does not come with instructions, somebody help me
This arrived in Lancaster, PA two weeks ago! We have three Aldi locations in Lancaster which comes in handy when something popular comes out.
I purchased two of the accent cabinets that are 31.5″ wide. Be sure to check each piece to make sure they are not damaged and that the holes are drilled in the correct places. The cabinet a wide/norrow piece that secures the bottom to the sides and one hole wasn’t drilled nor could I drill a hole to make it work. Thankfully Aldi had more to purchase. The second one I put together had a cracked side to it. So, I actually had three in my possession to pick and pull parts from.
The locking nuts are cheap. If you twist too hard you will break them. This happened to me twice with very little force. Thankfully, in my case, they had placed extra nuts with one of the cabinets so I didn’t need to contact the company requesting more (Not sure how that would turn out).
The doors are not secured with quality hinges. If you plan on opening and closing the doors, often, I would avoid this cabinet. Mine are just for show and on both sides of my fire place to hold art pieces I wish to display.
There is a flat insert you place, in the back, to enclose the back. I actually wallpapered the back to give the cabinet a little more visual appeal! You can get peel and stick wallpaper at Lowes, Walmart, Target, Wayfair. So many beautiful options out there.
Finally, I might paint the cabinets white. In the meantime I added a light under the top of the cabinet and under the cabinet shelf. The lights run on AAA which will last a long time because I will only have them on when I have company. They are controlled by a remote.
