It’s pretty difficult to ignore the sporting endeavours of the various Olympic teams over in Rio right now. Many of us have caught up with the events as they happen, with the excitement of the action spread across newspapers and screens all over the world. But whether you’re a sporting fan or not, there’s plenty of inspiration for home and leisure comfort to be found in and around the Brazilian stadiums.
There’s nothing quite like an espresso coffee to get us going in the morning. The fantastic design of the Romero Britto “Blue Cat” Espresso Cup & Saucer Set (above) is from the Brazilian pop artist Romero Britto. Britto has managed to infuse the designs with a real sense of vibrancy and energy that captures some of the magic of his home country. Part of a series of beautiful designs, the Blue Cat set is sure to bring a cheerful style to your coffee times.
The Brazilia Cushion Cover by Olivier Desforges also has something of a samba style to it. The excellent quality cover is produced in pure white linen and features wonderfully embroidered columns of intense colour. The discreet zip closure of the cover makes it easy to fir around any suitably sized cushion and can reliably support you as you put your feet up to watch the games!
And if watching the games has inspired you to get out and take part in some sporting activity you’re going to need to stay hydrated. This is where the excellently Sagaform Fresh Water Bottle The Sagaform Bottle With Ice Piston will allow you to enjoy perfectly chilled drinks when you’re out and about. Ideal for picnics, sports activities or work, the water bottle has a removable ice piston which you can store in the freezer. Boasting a capacity of 520ml, which is the equivalent of a bottle of water, the reusable, dishwasher-safe water bottle is finished with a pull-up valve for easy drinking with less spills.
But if you’re still more at ease inside with a warm drink, here’s another mug capturing a different kind of Olympic spirit. The Olympic mugs by McLaggan Smith were designed for the 2012 games in London and bring a humorous approach to the games that are just perfect for chilling out. After all sometimes it’s enough to watch others doing their best, while we simply do our best to relax! Gold medals for all!
