George Home at Asda is selling a gorgeous, designer-looking scalloped tray for just £10 – and we think it’s nailing the look of timeless elegance at a budget to a tee.
In case you’ve been out of the loop, scalloped edges have pretty much been the centre of many of our favourite pieces being birthed from the latest home decor trends. From scalloped rugs, lampshades, side tables, and more.
However, one take we’ve seen on the rise, in particular, is scalloped trays – and George Home’s new launch has made the scalloped edge home furnishing trend as attainable as ever.
George Home scalloped tray
Last week, I was invited for a first look at George Home’s SS24 collections. While the white round bobbin mirror undeniably caught my eye, another piece that demanded my attention was their scalloped trays.
The scalloped trays were styled to perfection as part of George Home’s new ‘Parisian Breakfast’ range. Inspired by the brand’s styling, I can confidently say that snapping up this tray is sure to help make a bedroom look more expensive, adding a touch of elegance with its playful edges.
Perfect for serving up hot cuppas for your loved ones or for curating a gorgeous ‘trayscape’, this scalloped tray is bang on trend and looks more expensive than it is.
Better yet, Katy Traill, senior design manager for George Home at Asda notes that the ‘scallop trend is an absolute hit’ with their shoppers, namely for the way they add character effortlessly in styling a boring room.
‘Scallop accessories offer a stylish lift to any space, seamlessly complementing your existing decor,’ adds Katy. ‘Our classic scallop accessories are timeless additions to your home, making them an ideal choice for those seeking to refresh their space without undertaking a major overhaul.’
On top of being an easy way to instantly inject character into a living space, they also tap into that Nostalgiacore aspect, being reminiscent of retro-inspired trends.
‘Growing up as a child of the eighties, I was surrounded by the elegance of scallops and charming shapes,’ begins Sarah Ross, co-founder of luxury home decor brand, Addison Ross. ‘What I find particularly enchanting about them is the ability to create alluring focal points within a room by integrating a simple yet captivating finish, especially when you add a show-stopping colour.’
Sarah adds, ‘The symmetrical and gracefully scooped intonations provide a visually satisfying experience, instantly elevating any tray.’
