Spring is in the air, and we're swooning over a new, seasonal limited-edition line of IKEA home goods that really puts us in the mood . . . for spring, people. For spring. The new collection, called TILLFÄLLE, combines influences from Brazil and Scandinavia. With all eyes turned to Rio for this August's Summer Olympics, it's a smart—and stylish—move for the famous furniture company.

In the TILLFÄLLE collection, the decidedly different aesthetics of the countries merge to create a line that is at once loud and sophisticated, playful and seductive. Vibrant patterns meet Scandinavia's minimalist lines on a range of household items, from serving bowls to rugs. It's like jungle meets Marimekko—and we can't get enough of it.

We'll be outfitted with items like the TILLFÄLLE tray—for serving caipirinhas, of course—and the mix-and-match side plates for party snacks and appetizers for watching the Games this summer. Here are some more of the items we're coveting most.
