Shopping + Podcast with Michael Devine

I have long been a fan of Michael Devine's whimsical fabrics and playful designs. My husband and I first meet Michael and his partner Thomas Burak in Paris during the January 2008 Maison & Objet. After a long, leisurely dinner followed by a few glasses of absinthe we were invited to New York for Thanksgiving. Over the past two years Michael and Thomas have become close family friends. Before heading home, I spent last weekend in Kinderhook, New York with two of my favorite men.

Michael and Thomas pulled out all the stops including a cocktail party in my honor. Michael recently created a wonderful assortment of signature trays that were used for passing hors d'oeuvres during the party. His adorable trays were a big hit with everyone last Saturday and they are now on his website, just in time for the holidays. And, best of all, standard shipping is free! You can see the cute tray in question and photos from the party below.

On Sunday we sat down before dinner and talked about fabrics, cooking and holiday entertaining. Listen here.



The cute pea pods are also available from Michael Devine Home

I like what Christopher had to say! Many times cocktail parties make for fab dinners - lol. I love the images you provided, the warm lighting and vantage point of the lens made me feel so cozy, so gorgeous.

I love the photos and I visited his website...great products!! I also appreciate that cocktail parties can be done in lieu of dinner parties, because it makes hosting so much easier!

The "Fretwork" pattern remains one of my all time favorite designs. I love how LARGE the repeat is. It offers a great visual punch.
