Hankering for home
Feeling homesick? You’re not alone. Research conducted by Knight Frank shows that more expats are planning to purchase property “back home” as a result of COVID-19. Almost two thirds of respondents said the lockdown had influenced their decision, leading to a significant uptick in residential enquiries. Victoria Garrett, the company’s head of residential in AsiaPacific, says, “Time in lockdown has underlined the importance of family for many, and the type of lifestyle they want to lead.” Other stats show that 29 percent of expats are considering a permanent move, with 14 percent buying property purely as a second home; the majority, though, are seeking a “50/50” home, one that’s a base back home but also a spot they might return to permanently.
LG Electronics has upped its game in air-care solutions with the launch of the PuriCare 360° Double Air Purifier. Ideal for big spaces, the PuriCare absorbs double the amount of pollutants and distributes filtered air up to 7.5 metres in each direction. A six-step filtration process removes allergens, odours and harmful substances from the air, while a sensor performs real-time pollution checks to maintain effective operation. The accompanying LG ThinQ App means you can assess the indoor air quality from anywhere and activate the purifier before returning home. $1,799 at major retailers Best Denki, Courts and Harvey Norman.
Kings of Comfort
Aussie furniture experts King Living have launched two new sofas to fit this year’s redefined living spaces. The Hugo has wide, plush seats and offers modular sofa flexibility, with arms and backs that can be repositioned to transition from an upright reading space by day to a cosy sofa or luxurious bed for two by night. It has smart storage solutions to maximise space, too. Meanwhile, the contemporary Bellaire comes with a unique high back and deep seats for ultimate comfort. Both are manufactured in-house in Australia, with signature steel frames and a 25-year warranty. You can also customise with smart accessories and premium fabrics or leather.
