Olympics Inspiration

There’s a bit of sadness at Design Lines today. Perhaps its because the 17 day party of the Olympics is now gone and we’ll have to wait another 4 years to be OBSESSED with the games.

All of us found it hard to get some sleep the last two weeks but we couldn’t help but stay up way past the decent hours of the night to catch a glimpse of the awesome moments. Some of the DLL highlights include:

The sensational Opening Ceremonies

Amazing Gymnastics (who else adores Bela Karolyi?)

Michael Phelps (of course)

Discovering new Olympic sports (Trampolining, anyone?)

Beach Volleyball

The list goes on….

I think it’s safe to agree that the USA represented plenty of Gold, Silver, & Bronze. Perhaps we should consider Swiss architecture firm Herzog & de Meuron for a Gold medal in design for the beautiful architecture that is the center of the Olympics: The Birds Nest. Read more about it here:

Tragic that the Olympics are over, but at least we can all drown our sorrows in these gorgeously Asian-inspired fabrics from F. Schumacher & Co:

Shiroko Silk Velvet in Bronze

Chinois Fret in Cinnabar / Gold

My absolute favortie right now, Chiang Mai Dragon in Aquamarine.
