Le Creuset Just Dropped Its Newest Color-and It's the First of Its Kind
Whether you're taking stock of your kitchen staples during a New Year's refresh or simply searching for thoughtful additions to inspire at-home cooking, Le Creuset's latest release is sure to catch your eye. Today, the beloved French brand has unveiled a gorgeous color that's perfect for new beginnings: Agave.
"This engaging hue, inspired by the blues and greens of the plant agave azul, represents how expression can be at once multifaceted and harmonious, and demonstrates Le Creuset's expertise in crafting a hue that captures the nuances of personal expression," the brand writes on its site. "The multi-layered beauty of Agave is that it complements other colors, think of it as a chameleon of sorts, adapting and elevating the colors around it."
For nearly a century, Le Creuset has been an industry leader in ultra high-quality cast iron, impressing home cooks with its gorgeous palette of timeless and trend-setting colors. To achieve Agave's shimming blend, the brand uses its celebrated enameling process to first apply a lush green base and then a deep blue gradient layer, marking the first time Le Creuset has combined two completely different colors to craft a signature hue. What's more, the Agave line features bright champagne-gold knobs to offset its dark color.
You can shop more than a dozen items in Agave, including a 5.5-quart Dutch oven, the brand's skinny grill, and a covered stoneware baker. For those who like to mix and match their Le Creuset colorways, Agave pairs well with Flame's vivid warmth or Nectar's cheer. And for fans of winter blues, combine Agave with vibrant Deep Teal and Mediterranean-inspired Marseille. The new collection is a perfect opportunity to brighten up your kitchen in the dreary depths of winter.
