What style is returning for 2024? If Songmics Home is right, it’s mid-century modern, with its new Ekho furniture collection using textured, wear-resistant and easy-to-clean synthetic leather and refined stitching. The collection includes bar stools, dining and lounge chairs, and storage benches, in Forest Green, Caramel Brown and Ink Black, colours that call upon nature.

The Little Car Company, meanwhile, has the perfect accessory for the lucky few who have their scaled-down classic cars: a Goodwool cover, with prices beginning at €2,500 excluding VAT, and a custom commission retailing at €3,000 excluding VAT. Goodwool already supplies protective covers for luxury, classic and high-performance cars of the 1:1 scale, so it’s a natural that it would cover the finest scaled-down but driveable cars for children.

Finally, we swear by Dell monitors at head office, and it’s promising to see the company launch the world’s first 40 in 5K monitor certified by TÜV Rheinland for five-star eye comfort. It’s so important to reduce blue light and to keep our eyes comfortable, given how much screen time we have these days. The Dell UltraSharp 40 Curved Thunderbolt Hub Monitor, model U4025QW, has IPS Black Panel technology for greater colour contrast and 5K resolution (5,120 by 2,160 pixels). Eye fatigue is reduced thanks to an ambient light sensor and the reduction of blue light exposure.

A 34 in model, the U3425WE, brings the resolution down to WQHD (3,440 by 1,440 pixels) yet retains the five-star certification from TÜV Rheinland.
