1. Dinnerware to die for

If you're planning on entertaining over the next few weeks, it's time to get your dinnerware up to scratch. These cheese-inspired fondue plates from Harvest Home are bound to impress your guests.

Fondue plates, price on request, Harvest Home, Jumeirah Centre, Dubai


2. Cabinet reshuffle

There's a host of new arrivals at the United Furniture showrooms in Dubai and Sharjah. We love this cheery two-door floor cabinet which, with its colourful stripes, will brighten up even the drabbest of design schemes.

3. Vacuum versatility

The Dyson DC35 Digital Slim is now available in the UAE. Dubbed "the most powerful lightweight cordless vacuum for every floor type", it reportedly spins five times faster than a Formula 1 car engine. It also looks super sleek and will take up minimal space in your broom cupboard.

4. Fragrant flame

Make sure your home smells as good as it looks this festive season with Diptyque's Holiday Collection candles, available now from Harvey Nichols Dubai. There's a variety of options to choose from but we're going with Oliban's heady scent of frankincense.
