Whether you became a pet parent during one of the many lockdowns, or you’ve had a fluffy friend for as long as you can remember, chances are your home is starting to feel a little cluttered with their many accessories. And worse still, their dog bed might not match quite match your interiors.

Luckily, Aldi’s Specialbuys section is here to save the day. Following the success of its velvet scalloped armchair, which sold out almost instantly when it first launched, and its Insta-worthy scallop bed range, the affordable retailer expanded its collection to include velvet scalloped armchairs and sofa beds for your pet.

Both options have a sleek design that wouldn’t look out of place anywhere in your home. So, if you want to streamline your interiors, and coordinate your furniture with your dog bed, you’re in luck as the beds are back. A sell-out hit last year, the chairs allowed us to indulge our Bridgerton obsession and we’re still seeing the Regencycore trend all over our social media.

And the best news is that your bank account won’t take too much of a hit as the dog beds, which come in both grey and royal blue, start at just £39.99.

Owing to the reputation of Aldi’s Specialbuys – be that the brand’s rattan furniture collection that would rival any designer range or its coveted hanging egg chair – we predict a sell-out.

With a foam filling, your four-legged friend will be comfortable and cosy while snoozing. And we even think that Queenie’s corgis would appreciate it. The best thing of all is if they jump on it with muddy paws, the cushion covers are machine washable. A very regal addition to your home.
