“Our furniture Special Buys are always incredibly popular with our customers and the beauty of carefully curated collections such as the Luxe Home and Urban Spaces ranges is that they allow customers to restyle their homes with on-trend furniture and accessories,” said Shay Stearnes, Buying Director at ALDI Australia. “The end result is a mix-and-match styling solution that’s easy for customers to recreate at home, whether they purchase one key piece or source a whole new look.”

Why we love it…
The Luxe Home and Urban Spaces ranges are filled with some of our most covetable interiors Special Buys yet, from the effortless elegance of the grey upholstered Accent Arm Chair ($99.99) with its beautiful button details, through to the tactile qualities of the Chunky Knit Throw ($59.99) and French Linen Fitted Sheet Set ($89.99 for Queen Size and $99.99 for King Size).
“This year’s ranges are designed around textural layering with pared-back furniture in statement black or natural finishes,” says Shay.
“The colour palette is intentionally subtle, with a focus on neutral tones and textures such as velvet, jacquard, melange, knits and French linen.”
Behind the scenes, design work on the Luxe Home and Urban Spaces ranges start two years in advance, with our Buying team travelling overseas to observe international trends. Returning back to Australia full of inspiration, the team brings to life on-trend, curated home collections for customers.
“We draw design inspiration from many sources and gain insights from trend forecasters in order to predict interiors trends and deliver designer quality ranges.”
Our three favourite products from this year’s Urban Spaces range includes:
1. French Linen Fitted Sheet Set ($89.99 for Queen Size and $99.99 for King Size)
Woven from the finest pure French flax, this linen sheet set is vintage washed for a relaxed look and feel. With five assorted colours to choose from, the sheet sets are soft and breathable making them cool in summer and warm in winter.
2. Quilt Cover Sets ($69.99 for Queen Size and $79.99 for King Size)
A new quilt cover set is a perfect way to update any bedroom setting. The quilt sets include four sophisticated designs in neutral tones of stone, charcoal and white and are made from beautifully textured jacquards or unique weaves.
3. Organic Cotton Cover Pillow ($14.99) and Organic Cotton Cover Quilt ($69.99 for Queen Size)
It’s easy to forget to update your quilts and pillows, so these products are ideal to complete your bedroom makeover. The quilt and pillow both feature organic cotton covers and have been designed with utmost comfort in mind.
Why you’ll love it…
The Luxe Home and Urban Spaces ranges allows customers to affordably tap into some of the latest interior trends for 2018. We break down the trends for you in ‘non-interior design’ speak.
This look is all about combining tactile elements to create an elegant aesthetic. Think French linen, knitted throws and plush velvet. Natural elements like wood add another layer of texture and a sense of raw luxury.
Key buys: Chunky Knit Throw ($59.99) and Velvet Cushions (50cm x 50cm, $19.99 each).
Mauve was a key colour trend from this year’s Milan Design Week (also known as interiors heaven!) This soft purple hue works well with taupe and shades of grey, as seen in these ranges.
Keys buys: Mongolian Faux Fur cushion (50cm x 50cm , $19.99) and Melange Blanket ($39.99 for Queen Size)
