“The Olympics remain the most compelling search for excellence that exists in sport, and maybe in life itself.” -Dawn Fraser
Today is the day! The XXII Olympic Wi
nter Games start tonight with the opening ceremony held in Sochi, Russia. We LOVE the Winter Olympics. Why? Because the sporting events are AWESOME! How often are we able to watch skiers and snowboards fly through the air on national television?
Or how about bobsled teams racing down the track at more than 93 miles per hour! Plus, any type of competition creates loyalty and we are all rooting for Team USA!
In anticipation of the events, we decided to walk around our store and see what accent pieces look like they belong in the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics! Let’s take a look at what we came up with.
While browsing our accent pieces, we found three items that remind us of OLYMPIC MEDALS.
Gold Accent Vase: These two gold vases remind us of Gold Medals. Why? They are gold and make a huge statement. Put them on your cocktail table in your living room and pretend that you are an Olympic Gold Medalist in Sochi. We are hoping that Team USA can bring home a bunch of these!
Silver Table Lamp: This silver table lamp looks very similar to an Olympic Silver Medal. Situated on top of your nightstand, look at it in admiration while you are watching the Olympics on your television in your bedroom!
Bronze End Table: This bronze end table is both exciting and funky. It certainly will make a statement in your living room! Close your eyes, doze off and dream of yourself winning an Olympic Bronze Medal. You will have this gorgeous end table to remind you of your dream!
Let’s take a look at some accent pieces that reminded us of certain Winter Olympic Sporting Events.
Figure Skating Doll Figurines: These figure skating dolls are perfect, just like the ladies competing this year! Place these figure skaters on your mantel while you are watching Polina Edmunds, Gracie Gold and Ashley Wagner compete to win Olympic medals for Team USA!
Matching Tall End Tables: What do you think of when you look at these tall end tables? Long skis! These end tables will remind you of the history at the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics: The women will make their debut in the ski jump competition!
Accent Cart: Well, we were looking for something that would remind us of one of the coolest events, bobsledding. The closest accent piece we could find is this accent cart! Although it probably isn't safe to ride in, it will be a pretty neat addition to your decorations in your home!
Last but not least, let’s take a look at some accent pieces that remind of us of our team: TEAM USA!
American Flag Box Set & American Flag Wall Accent: Set these on your end table, cocktail table or even a shelf to remind others who you are rooting for during the Sochi Winter Olympics! Hang this flag accent piece on your wall to scream your loyalty, Let’s Go Team USA!
