With 2013's autumn/winter collections now out, we take a look at some of the latest launches on the market.
The Hot List: Seasonal styles
1 Scandi mores
We're super excited about Ferm Living's new More collection; we love the brand's charming Scandi style - think soft pastels, cutesie prints and bold geometrics with a fun twist. The new collection includes tea towels, notebooks, bedcovers, cushions, napkins, storage solutions and wallstickers; the only problem is choosing between them.

2 Curtains by Kylie
It might seem like an unlikely undertaking for a pop princess, but Kylie Minogue has launched a new range of curtains. Inspired by the songstress's lavish stage costumes and love of vintage fabrics, the collection is brimming with shimmering taffetas, crushed velvets and iridescent weaves. Look out for the rich, plum-coloured Verity collection.

D.tales, the ultimate destination for Scandinavian design in Dubai, has added a host of new products, ranging from minimal lighting to high-quality bedding, to its portfolio. There's also a new range of beds on offer, such as the Isala adjustable model Swedish company Bedcraft, which comes with a three-spring system and a 25-year warranty.

4 Party piece
Wallsticker specialist E-Walls is launching a range of bespoke party packages, meaning you can completely transform your home for a special event, whether it's a suave dinner party or a raucous get-together for the kids, using the company's easily removable vinyl wallstickers. You can build a themed package using the company's existing designs or create your own bespoke decals.

5 In the mix
Villeroy and Boch's latest tableware series, Lina, is simple but fun. The collection combines a palette of red, beige, pink and light blue in three distinct patterns, ranging from a graphic grid on the rims of soup plates and across the surface of breakfast plates to a pretty floral motif on plates, bowls, platters, coffee and espresso cups, mugs, dessert bowls, milk jugs and sugar bowls. Make sure to mix and match.
