With all eyes on Brazil for the FIFA World Cup 2014, we couldn’t help but look to the South American nation for a little interiors inspiration. Breeding world-famous architects like Oscar Niemeyer and top-notch furniture designers like Sergio Rodrigues and the Campana Brothers, Brazil has been a great influence on design around the world and a leading force in modern architecture. Its lush, tropical landscapes also happen to pair gorgeously with rustic modern furniture and the bright modern art its known for.
Take a look back below at some of our favorite Brazilian interiors we’ve covered in the past. We’d gladly fly across the equator to visit these wonderful spaces.
