This year, rectangular fire pit tables have been incredibly popular, she says, because they not only add a heat source and elevate the design of an outdoor space, but also work well as dividers — separating dining and lounge areas.

A personal favourite for fall is the chimney fireplace, says Moreira.

“It’s such a statement piece and takes up very little space,” she says.

Ikea recently released a home handbook to help Canadians live healthier, more sustainable lives at home, says Kristin Newbigging, Ikea public relations manager. The guide focusses specifically on the bedroom — furniture and furnishings.

“Sleep is how we recharge for a new day, and we want to share solutions that anyone can afford, understand and relate to,” she says.

An upholstered bed frame will do double duty, this fall, says Newbigging:

“Not only is it a cosy, lush bed to climb into every night, but also the fabric itself absorbs sound, which is helpful if you have a noisy neighbour or partner who snores,” she says.

Our indoor air quality is always a hot topic in North America, as we head into fall and winter, with our reliance on heating and ventilation systems.

This fall, we also have the reality of smoke pollution from wildfires, and an extra focus on indoor sanitation and hygiene due to the health pandemic.

In response to some of these factors, Dyson has just released their Pure Humidify+Cool, which purifies the air inside your home and provides “hygienic humidity,” says Charlie Park, global category director for environmental care at Dyson.
