1 Mirror mirror

Nada Debs's Arabian Nights mirror perfectly encapsulates her East-meets-West style. It's a great way to introduce a pop of colour as well as some Middle Eastern flavour into your space. Dh11,100, Harvey Nichols Dubai

2 In the know

The Aaarif candlestick is made by Dar En Art, a French company that creates contemporary Moroccan design objects. All its products offer a modern twist on Arabic design, but none more so than this 70-centimetre-high lacquered steel candlestick featuring the word Aarif ("I know") in Arabic calligraphy. Dh2,100, Faubourg Design, Dubai

3 Take note

They're actually sold as a box of six notecards, but we grouped four of these lovely laser-cut babushkas in a simple Ikea frame to create a cheap but pretty piece of wall art. Dh50 for six, Paperchase, Mushrif Mall

4 Hot seat

The Felix side chair comes in a range of quirky colours, but we love this fiery red version. A retro hourglass figure is paired with a generous seat and chrome-plated tube legs for a slimline, stackable chair. Dh349, Crate and Barrel, Mall of the Emirates and Mirdif City Centre

5 On your bike

Illustrated and screen-printed by the British designer Snowden Flood, these cool cyclist mugs in a cheery cherry red come beautifully boxed, making them ideal for gift giving. £9 (Dh53), www.hirstandhirst.co.uk

6 On the wire

Elegant but unobtrusive, this simple wire table lamp will look great on a side table or by your bed. If you're feeling bold, pair it with a different coloured lampshade - the brighter the better. Dh459, Indigo Living
