The latest evidence: Le Creuset’s new Oasis Collection.
I’ve always been a fan of Le Creuset, so when I received their latest email blast promoting their midcentury ‘Oasis’ collection, it piqued my interest. The collection combines three of their existing colors: Soleil, Palm and Caribbean with a new color — and it’s pink! ‘Hibiscus’ is a light midcentury pink that would look oh-so-cute in a vintage kitchen, maybe even one with our Retro Renovation® by Wilsonart® First Lady Pink boomerang countertops? Squee!
From the Le Creuset website:
A Bright New Paradise
In midcentury America, a new kind of optimism swept the nation. From Palm Beach to Palm Springs, people everywhere lit tiki torches, mixed cocktails and let the party spill out onto the patio. The backyard became the suburban paradise. On patios and by pools, open-air entertaining captivated the country as hosts embraced outdoor cooking and exotic island flavors in their own personal oases.
Tiki Torches Not Included
The crisp, refreshing shades of Oasis mingle effortlessly in any combination, just like guests at a great party. And what does a great party require? People to gather, food to share and a place to relax. Decades after midcentury’s heyday, the backyard still makes a perfect escape — and the timeless allure of outdoor entertaining still draws us all outside.
Cocktails by the Pool? Yes, Please.
As part of our celebration of all things midcentury, we redesigned our pitcher with a clean, modern sensibility. Grab a long bar spoon and channel your inner mixologist, or simply fill it with your favorite lemonade.
