The French cookware company that changed the way we cook turns 90 this year! Le Creuset are arguably the most famous pots in the world. Their famous cast iron cookware are classics. They last forever, are almost indestructible, and just so chic. Ninety years ago the original orange glossy finish was shocking in a world of gray and black. Today, millions of cooks, homeowners, and apartment dwellers turn to Le Creuset as the ultimate items to have in the kitchen. The pots are a status symbol, and as decorative as they are functional.
Gracious Home, the famous home emporium on New York's Upper East and Upper West Side of Manhattan are known for carrying all the must-have items for every room in your house. The store carries a wide range of Le Creuset, and just had special events celebrating the 90th anniversary. The store hosted an open house in both locations with other French brands on hand to share the celebration. Le Creuset Cookware, Briochin household cleaners, and Breville applicances had representatives on hand demonstrating their wares. French artisan Christophe Pourny was also on hand signing copies of his best selling book - The Furniture Bible, and demonstrating his all natural line of serums, waxes, and furniture tonics.
To mark this special occasion, Le Creuset has created a limited edition "cocotte" exactly like the original from 1925. The house will only make 1,925 of the pots worldwide ($500.00). At the same time the company has launched Black & White Pots - not seen before at the house of all things color.
