1. COURTS unveils its furniture collection for 2019

A new range of living, lounge, dining, and bedding pieces that has been refreshed with customisable and smart options tailored for all families and home spaces is what customers can expect from the COURTS' Furniture Collection 2019.

Shoppers can also customise everything about their bed, including headboards, mattresses, divan bases and bedframes with over 1,500 possible configurations to choose from and a wait time that starts from 10 days.

2. Grab the Dyson Supersonic™ 23.75 karat gold hair dryer!

The Dyson Supersonic™ 23.75 karat gold hair dryer is now available for pre-order in Singapore on shop.dyson.com.sg at the retail price of $799. It will launch officially, and be available for purchase during Black Friday, 23 November 2018 via shop.dyson.com.sg.

James Dyson is fascinated by gold as an element—both for its scientific properties and unique colour. It is one of the most resilient materials in the world, and has been used in design, sculpture, and architecture for centuries. James is also passionate about the age-old process of gold leafing. Inspired by both the element and gilding process, James challenged his engineers to find a way to apply gold leaf to the Dyson Supersonic™ hair dryer.

To this day, gilding has been done by hand in workshops around the world. It’s a highly skilled trade and one that has never been made into mass production. Precision is essential. But Dyson’s engineers set out to learn the craft, in order to explore methods to apply the gold in a repeatable fashion. To remain as close to the traditional method of gilding as possible, a red gesso colour has been applied beneath the gold leaf on the loop of the product. This is to celebrate how gold leaf has been applied through its history.

Grab the Dyson Supersonic™ 23.75 karat gold hair dryer for yourself or your loved one—it makes for great holiday present!

3. Goutal Paris launches its Home Collection

Goutal Paris, creator of olfactory tales, ushered in 2018 with a new chapter in its story by renewing the identity of its brand and fragrances. In November, it turns yet another leaf and branches out into design with a remarkable collection for the home. Cultivating an art of living, Goutal Paris’ Home Collection brings fragrance to a whole new dimension, with Camille Goutal creating four new exclusive scents—from the woodiest to the most floral—to complement Goutal Paris’ two iconic fragrances, Un Air d’Hadrien and Une Forêt d’Or.

Spanish designer Tomás Alonso, renowned for his colourful, poetic pieces, approached this collection as a way of enriching the olfactory experience. The subtly facetted contours of the glass candles, featuring a rich palette of colours, and the origami folds of the diffusers recall the ribbing of the brand’s iconic godron bottle. Elegant in every way, the pieces from Goutal Paris’ Home Collection can be used alone or mixed and matched to create a unique space.

UNE MAISON DE CAMPAGNE CANDLE 185G, $115

UN AIR D’HADRIEN & UNE FORET D’OR 100ML, $120

4. SABON presents Christmas collection

This Christmas, SABON invites you to embark on a journey to the wonders of nature—to stop for a moment, to enjoy the aromas of flora, and to breathe in the beauty of creation. Created and designed with inspiration from a trip around nature, SABON drew inspiration from the abundance, the ingredients, and textures that nature in all its glory has to offer. A combination of wild plants and flowers with authentic elements that together create a special, rich picture, and that express nature’s royal crown.

The collection includes a range of SABON’s bestsellers and features a limited-edition design and unique fragrance. SABON is proud to launch Woody Patchouli, a new limited-edition fragrance for the holiday season. Every step on the journey reveals new treasures, with the scent opening with notes of refreshing orange mixed with cinnamon and cardamom, continuing with floral touches of rose and violet merged with sensual amber, and signing off with an exotic twist of patchouli, vanilla, and tonka beans. The collection is elegantly packaged in opulent gift boxes that mix velvet embroidery with gold decorations and are reminiscent of regal jewellery boxes.
