Colour Your World
LivingColors from Philips lights up your world the way you want it: Happy yellow when it’s grey outside, soothing green when you are blue. Touch the colour ring on the control, and choose from 16 million colours—from pastels to rich hues.

Tabletop Fun
The Lenovo IdeaCentre Horizon Table PC is full HD, with a 27-inch LED backlit screen. It has 10-point multi-touch capabilities, built-in surround sound speakers, eight EA games, Aura OS, Nvidia GeForce GT620M GPU, two USB 3.0 sockets, HDMI, a six-in-one card reader and a 3.5 mm jack. Get rid of that coffee table now!

Raise the Bar
Qboid Design presents a series of four bar cabinets: Fairy Bar, made from Nagpur teak, for storing liquor; Fiesta, a compact cabinet ideal for smaller spaces; Sea Shell, a multi-purpose storage cabinet with mother-of-pearl inlay; and the Corner Bar, a compact option to fit almost any room.

Breathe Better

The Euroair Detox removes dust, smoke, harmful gases and odour from the air with its  seven-stage purification system. It has a four-speed control, allowing you to switch speeds depending on the size of your room and the level of pollution. That’s not all: It comes with a fragrance diffuser, night lamp, child lock and a remote control.


Fine Tableware
Andy Home’s latest addition is the fine bone china collection from UK brand William Edwards. It includes the Coronation Collection, inspired by the ornate decoration on the ceiling of Westminster Abbey; the Country Collection with three sub ranges: Tweed, Wildlife, Orchard; and the City Collection. The robust crockery is also dishwasher safe.
