Le Creuset's newest color, Marseille Blue, launched a little over a month ago, but this weekend's Home + Housewares show in Chicago marked the first time we'd seen it in person. Inspired by the French coast, this rich, warm blue is lovely and crisp, and looks especially fresh when paired with stainless steel.
As you may remember, Faith wasn't the greatest fan of Le Creuset's 2011 color Fennel, which she felt looked a little too old-fashioned and anemic. To me, this new color makes up for all that: it feels modern, yet evokes images of a breezy French seaside way of life. (And who doesn't dream of that life?) Marseille, as you probably well know, is located on the southeast coast of France, and has both an amazing culinary history and an up-and-coming foodie reputation.
The new color is available in both cast iron and stoneware, and can be purchased now through Williams-Sonoma.
What do you think? Will you be adding Marseille to your collection?
