"The new Martha Stewart Collection takes Macy's home assortment to a whole new level of interest and relevance for our customer-supported by an editorial voice that is one of the world's most-recognized authorities on home decorating, cooking and entertaining," says Tim Adams, chairman and CEO of Macy's Home Store.

"In the spirit of Martha's own love of collecting, the new product at Macy's is an authentic expression of the Martha Stewart perspective, articulated throughout the collection with personal inspirations like design references from her antique linen collection to new interpretations of faux bois. The Martha Stewart Collection at Macy's is a true reflection of her magazines and the product in the original Martha by Mail Catalog coming to life in our stores."

The Martha Stewart Collection encompasses a broad range of home goods- including bed and bath textiles, housewares, casual dinnerware, flatware, glassware, cookware, holiday decorating and trim items- all developed exclusively for the discerning Macy's customer.

"The Martha Stewart Collection at Macy's is inspired by treasures in my personal collections from around the world and by beautiful, useful items that I love in my own home," says Martha Stewart, Founder. "I am very excited to officially launch the Martha Stewart Collection today and bring my studio audience on the ultimate shopping trip."
