F rench culinary brand La Cornue has joined forces with L.A. designer Martyn Lawrence Bullard to bring a new collection of colors to La Cornue's iconic Château range. Bullard revealed the 10 racy shades at the stunning new Middleby Residential Showcase Gallery to a crowd of designers and architects. The La Cornue range, handmade in Paris since 1908, is made to order, with the vibrant enamel color choice a hallmark of the brand. British- born Bullard first fell in love with the Chateau range when he traveled as a child with his parents to villas in the South of France. "The homes always had a La Cornue — this masterwork, right there in the kitchen," he says. For the color palette, he drew upon his childhood fascination with vintage race cars, translating the racing colors into rich saturated hues with polished metal trim and lush leather-wrapped handrails. The colors that win: Le Mans Burgundy, Monaco Gray, Imola Red, Jerez White, and Brands Hatch Green, to name a few. "There is nothing sexier than a vintage race car," Bullard says. Or a La Cornue Chateau range in Monza Orange. Seen: Middleby Residential president Najib Maalouf, who welcomed guests alongside Bullard; Anne Puricelli; designers Suzanne Kasler and Matthew Quinn, in from Atlanta; Middleby chef Chris Fersch; as well as Javier Burkle, Bryan and Mike Yates, Matthew Collins, dapper Leland Stone, Maura and Dan Houchard, Caitlin Wilson, Denise McGaha, and Steven Cooper.
