Raise your hand if your dream kitchen consists of open shelving displaying a handful of Le Creuset cookware. Not only are Le Creuset’s best-selling kitchen essentials like its round dutch oven and signature skillet top-notch when it comes to quality, but they are the type of additions that instantly make a kitchen look more glam and put-together. Basically, if you don’t have a Le Creuset Dutch oven in your kitchen are you really adulting?

To celebrate spring, Le Creuset introduced two new hues to its cookware collection, and it’s not the shades you would expect for spring. Instead of bright pops of color or pastels, Le Creuset released two of its chicest colors yet — a true matte black and shimmering gray.

The new spring colors licorice and stone were inspired by nature, but surprisingly florals weren’t the source of inspiration. Instead, the color pairing was derived from the more rugged yet beautiful features in nature like natural stone and granite. As licorice is Le Creuset’s deepest matte yet, and stone features the perfect amount of a faint, glittery sheen, they’ll instantly add a glamorous feel to your kitchen.

Each color looks gorgeous on its own, but the two also work well in tangent if you were to mix and match your cookware. While licorice is available in more than 10 Le Creuset pieces — from the Dutch ovens to coffee mugs — stone comes in a more limited range.

This spring, think outside the box when it comes to redecorating your kitchen — these new colors are sure to be timeless additions. Shop the licorice and stone in our favorite Le Creuset cookware pieces below.
