The Rio Olympics will be here before you can say, “viva sua paixão.” That’s the motto of the 2016 games, meaning “live your passion.” To celebrate the occasion, IKEA has launched a limited-edition collection inspired by the Brazilian way of life. As a blend of Scandinavian and Brazilian design, TILLFÄLLE is bursting with color, patterns and natural materials. Here we’ve narrowed down our favorites.

1. Bench, $199

This is some seriously showstopping tile. And at less than $7 per square foot, you can afford to update your kitchen, bathroom or fireplace surround.

3. Occasional table, $199

This colorful sideboard features loose top slats for creative customization. IKEA recommends using it as an end table, but we’d like to hack it into a rolling bar cart. Saúde!

4. Tea towels, $9.99 for a 3-pack

Who couldn’t use an extra set of these? Each towel has a different design and they have sewn-in loops for easy hanging.

5. Coffee table, $249

Make a statement with this bold patterned coffee table. With a eucalyptus wood frame and a laminate top, it’s a stylish and sustainable pick.

6. Lamp shade, $35

Cork is cool again. Maybe not in your wedge sandals, but as a building material. Combine the lamp shade with your choice of cord set or lamp base for a look that’s relaxed and natural.

7. Cabinet, $299

Inject color into your home with this functional cabinet. It features sliding doors that don’t take up any extra space, so you can tuck away or display items as you please. The cabinet is made of eucalyptus wood, meaning the grain of each piece of furniture is unique.

8. Salt and pepper shakers, $4.99

9. Stool, $99

Serious question… is this a seat or a bongo drum? According to the designers at IKEA, soft padding and a leather cover makes this a stool, and a comfortable one at that.

10. Flatwoven rug, $119

These black and white beauties have the same pattern on either side, so you can simply turn them over once they start to look worn. Genius!

11. Coasters with holder, $9.99
