San Diego, Calif.—Duchateau launched its first ever designer collaboration with internationally recognized, award-winning interior designer Martyn Lawrence Bullard. Rooted in architectural references and reinvented for today’s lifestyles, the new collection features six finishes inspired by iconic architects throughout history. Each collection includes styles Niemeyer, Lutyens, Neutra, Napoleon III, Jeanneret and Palladian, each with a distinctive hue based on its architectural reference.
“My collection with Duchteau is inspired by some of history’s greatest architects who have had a dramatic impact on the world of design, each with his own amazing story and aesthetic vision,” Bullard said. “These designs, rooted in historical reference, are timeless, offering a nod to the past while feeling completely modern and complementary to today’s styles.”
Bullard, recently named to Architectural Digest’s prestigious AD100 list for the 15th consecutive year, is best known for the vibrant, sexy interiors he designs for his A-list clientele including Kylie Jenner, Blake Shelton, Gwen Stefani, Tommy and Dee Hilfiger and Cher, among others. His high-profile hospitality work includes the new Four Seasons Private Residences in Los Angeles, the award-winning Hotel Californian in Santa Barbara and the beloved Sands Resort & Spa in Palm Springs, as well as several luxury properties throughout the U.S., Europe, Asia and the Caribbean. Beyond his iconic interiors, Bullard is also recognized for his celebrated collections of products for the home, which include textiles, wall coverings, tile, furnishings, appliances, fixtures, rugs and lighting for the world’s finest manufacturers.
“For years, we have admired Martyn’s incredible vision and passion and knew that, for our first collaboration with an interior designer, he would be the perfect partner for Duchateau,” said Patrick Bewley, vice president of marketing, Duchateau. “Martyn looked to six distinguished architects as the touchstones of his collection and we spent months developing the distinctive finishes and colorways to bring to market colors and textures that showcase Martyn’s eye for style and quality.”
According to the company, the collection is engineered from European white oak with a width of 9.5 inches and a length up to 86-5/8 inches, featuring a UV lacquer and a brushed surface treatment—available for both commercial and residential applications.
