Pop Art This season's must-have accessory: a toaster. Seriously.


We used to think there was nothing particularly glamorous about a toaster … but then we discovered this powder-blue beauty from Smeg. The winner of multiple design awards from The Chicago Athenaeum Museum of Architecture and Design and Red Dot, this ’50s-style appliance brings major retro-cool vibes to the kitchen. While the powder-coated steel body is its bread and butter, the polished chrome base and backlit knobs add architectural oomph. Oh, and don’t worry—it toasts, too: The sky-blue Smeg boasts two “extra-wide” slots to fit everything from Wonderbread to wheat bagels, with six browning levels, self-centering racks and, of course, that super-satisfying pop. Seriously, this baby is the best thing since sliced bread. $150, available in seven colors. smegusa.com
