The iconic cookware company Le Creuset has joined forces with celebrated interior designer Sheila Bridges to bring you the recently launched Harlem Toile de Jouy Collection, a line of mugs, a pitcher, and a Dutch oven, all featuring Bridges' Harlem Toile pattern.

Bridges’ designs are truly unique. “I love the French toiles, but when I was decorating my own home, I couldn’t find one that spoke to me personally," the designer explains. So she created her own.

The designer also calls toile the little black dress of patterns. “It’s classic, it’s timeless, it kind of goes with everything." Here’s what you need to know about this groundbreaking Le Creuset launch.

Harlem-Inspired Design

While toile is considered a traditional designs (after all, toile fabric originated in Ireland during the mid-1700s), Le Creuset and Bridges' collaboration works in homes of many different styles. Bridges' Harlem Toile reimagines traditional toile, replacing its signature pastoral motifs with scenes from everyday Black life set in pastoral locales. The pattern offers a more nuanced and inclusive take on the typical toile design.

Whether you decide on a new Dutch oven or a set of mugs featuring this innovative take on toile, add them to your cart sooner rather than later, because this line is only available for a limited time. This collection is sold exclusively at Bloomingdale’s, Le Creuset Signature Stores, and on LeCreuset.com. All of these pieces are designed to coordinate with the brand’s extensive range of products, so go ahead and mix and match this set with the pieces you already own.
