ALDI fans have gone wild over a “luxury” velvet bench – that costs a mere $79.

The coveted item hit stores this morning and is available in two colours: Royal blue and emerald green.

But before it even had the chance to reach shelves, fans had already taken to Instagram to share their excitement over the bargain piece of furniture.

“How good do this weeks special buys look?” wrote one fan.

“Loving all the velvet, especially the bench,” said another.

One user wrote: “Those Audrey velvet chairs and ottomans are calling to me.”

“If I had the velvet ottoman I would just be touching it all the time,” declared another.

Many had already predicted that the item won’t stay in stock for long.

“This is going to be epic, get there early,” one person commented.

“It’s going to be another busy week in Aldi,” wrote another.

Other items in the luxe living collection include a white buffet, a velvet armchair, a vintage style gold table and a stunning grey rug – all at affordable price points.
