The Penneys bar cart, Aldi’s ottoman and 8 other homeware pieces you can get for under €60

The Penneys bar cart, Aldi’s ottoman and 8 other homeware pieces you can get for under €60

On the search for some affordable homeware pieces? Here are 10 you can buy right now for under €60


There once was a time when it seemed attractive interior pieces were meant only for those with mansions and money.

The rest of us were subjected to multicoloured orange carpets and brown cabinets and that was to be our lot. However, somewhere along the way, affordable retailers realised we wanted covetable trinkets and beautiful furnishings.

Now the carpets and cabinets of yore are replaced with the future. A future filled with incandescent accoutrements and directional designs at prices that don’t make us squeamish and run for the hills.

Penneys is always a saviour when it comes to fashion but they saw an opportunity for budget-friendly interiors and embraced it. The stylish gold bar cart was a sell-out last year and now it’s back for a limited time in selected Penneys stores.

Aldi has also made waves in the interiors realm with its affordable and sleek homeware offerings and this season is no different. From marble tables to ottomans, the store has everything you need to decorate your home.

Then you have Next, Zara Home and H&M Home, three beloved high-street stores offering a considered, chic and classy homeware selection.
