Antonio Carlos Jobim, as known as Tom Jobim, is one of the most important names of Brazilian Jazz and Bossa Nova’s music. You probably heard “Chega de Saudade”, “The Wave” or “Desafinado”.  But I’m sure that you will immediately recognize “Garota de Ipanema”, when its soft vibe starts playing! I can really imagine myself walking around the “calçadão”, along the sea, looking to the beautiful people on the beach. This was probably the same kind of moment that inspired Tom Jobim and Vinicius de Morais when they composed and wrote their worldwide hit. If you are a fan, you should definitely buy Barry Table Lamp. Probably the elegance and sophistication is the inspiration you need to write what is going on your mind, and inspire others!

“Instrument: guitar. The beat: Bossa Nova”. Words of the one and only,Frank Sinatra opening this 1967 video. An assumed fan of this “exciting all new sound”, Sinatra was, in part, responsible of introducing Bossa  Nova to the world! We all know it would have happened one way or another, but we still think it’s important to bring this to the topic. If you are a fan, here you have the perfect tribute: Sinatra Floor Lamp. We can change the colors… but ifyou want to get the Brazil’s vibe, full of love, passion, and happiness, you have to go for the tricolor version: Red for love, Yellow for happiness and Blue for all the oceans that Bossa Nova crossed.
