Duchateau, the luxury brand known for its European-style wide-plank wood flooring, announced its first designer collaboration with internationally recognized, award-winning interior designer Martyn Lawrence Bullard.

“My collection with Duchateau 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 "These designs, rooted in historical reference, are timeless, offering a nod to the past while feeling completely modern and complementary to today’s styles."

Designed in California, the collection includes styles Niemeyer, Lutyens, Neutra, Napoleon III, Jeanneret, and Palladian, each with a distinctive hue based on its architectural reference. Niemeyer features a sun-soaked finish, inspired by colors found throughout Brazil, the homeland of famed architect Oscar Niemeyer. The matte-like style of Lutyens has a luminosity within, inspired by the English countryside residences designed by Sir Edwin Lutyens. Neutra features light tones with a touch of warm gold as seen in the mid-century homes of legendary Southern California architect Richard Neutra. The blond to mid-tan tones of Napoleon III capture the style that re-invigorated Parisian architecture by Georges-Eugene Haussmann, who Napoleon III enlisted to revitalize the City of Lights. Jeanneret is a full rich honey brown, a hue inspired by the furniture Swiss master Pierre Jeanneret designed for the extraordinary Chandigarh city in India. Palladian, the darkest of the line, features a dark espresso palette inspired by Italy’s most important classical architect, Andrea Palladio. 

Bullard, recently named to Architectural Digest’s prestigious AD100 list for the fifteenth consecutive year, is best known for the vibrant, sexy interiors he designs for his A-list clientele including Kylie Jenner, Blake Shelton and 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 US, 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, wallcoverings, 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."

The Martyn Lawrence Bullard Collection by DUCHATEAU is engineered from European white oak with a width of 9.5” and a length up to 86-5/8”, featuring a UV lacquer and a brushed surface treatment—available for both commercial and residential applications.
