Totally on trend
August 17 2018
A $69 velvet-look armchair has won the approval of Kmart fans around the country, causing it to sell out in several stores.
The pleated claret chair recently dropped in stores and online and is part of Kmart’s new Home collection. It’s an example of the urban trend for August, showcasing streamlined and sophisticated elements.
Gaining popularity on social media in recent weeks, it’s amassed over 6,500 likes on Kmart Bargains’ Instagram page.
“Woah, this awesome!!!” one woman commented on Instagram.
“STOP IT. Are you serious!! That looks AMAZING,” exclaimed another.
The lesson? Run, don't walk.
