there’s a new coffee maker in town and it’s definitely got me talking. it’s the new michael graves design coffee maker at jcpenney and it’s sleek and shiny and looks pretty great on my kitchen countertop. A renowned architect and product designer, michael Graves has been called a modern day Michelangelo, and He believes great design shouldn’t have to be expensive. so he’s made a whole collection for jcpenney. yay, mister graves!
there’s a whole collection to go with the handsome coffee maker — a sweet michael graves toaster in the shape of, you guess it — toast. there’s great cafe cups and beautiful acacia wood serving trays and cutting board sets. we thought we’d take them out for a test drive and make a little breakfast this morning. i stopped off and got some local beans, a freshly baked loaf of bread and fruit, and oh yeah a quick stop at craftsman & wolves for a few pastries just to mix it up. this is what i like to call breakfast! very european, no? i invited my neighbor, photographer cindy loughridge over and i made her rush through some shots so we could drink the coffee and eats the goods! so pretty — good enough to eat, indeed! you can see the whole beautiful michael graves collection over at jcpenney home.
