Le Creuset—the French cookware company known for colorful Dutch ovens and cast iron pans—has released two new colors to add to its ever-growing collection: nectar and artichaut. The two colors are now available for purchase on Le Creuset, Sur La Table, and Williams Sonoma, in a slew of items.

Nectar and artichaut are a welcome change from the ubiquitous pastels that are often released for springtime. The nectar is a more muted honey, draped with both dark and light yellows, while the artichaut—inspired by the colors of an artichoke—boasts a mix of deep green and sea glass green/blue.

Le Creuset

Both colors are available in enameled cast iron and stoneware products—with the nectar painted on 10 enameled cast iron pieces and artichaut on nine—from the covered rectangular casserole to the signature braiser. Plus, there’s a host of accessories as well, like a honey pot (in nectar, of course), tea mugs, ramekins, salt and pepper grinders, and kettles.

While both colors can now be purchased on Le Creuset’s website, Williams Sonoma will only be adding nectar to its collection, and Sur La Table will only offer artichaut. And if you already own a handful of Le Creuset’s other colors and don’t think nectar or artichaut will match what’s in your kitchen, Le Creuset guarantees that you can mix and match these two colors with any of the brand’s other options—these two can complement just about everything.
