The Heritage Colors reveal followed a lively panel discussion, "In Celebration of Color," moderated by design expert and published author, Sophie Donelson, who was joined by color authorities and award-winning, multi-disciplinary designers, Jonathan Adler, Justina Blakeney, and Isabel Ladd. A special toast by Kohler Chair and Chief Executive Officer, David Kohler, closed the day's events.
Heritage Colors, part of Kohler's 150th Anniversary celebration, honors the company's color story that has been almost a century in the making, with six curated shades hand-selected from the Kohler archives for the campaign. While the palette of Spring Green (1927-1944); Lavender (1927-1944); Peachblow (1934-1973); Sunrise (1953-1969); Avocado (1967-1979); and Pink Champagne (1973-1979), draws from some of Kohler's most colorful past introductions, the vintage colorways remain remarkably fresh and of-the-moment.
Kohler Co., founded in 1873, began its 150th year of delivering first-to-market innovations with the Heritage Colors campaign, paying homage to an innovative movement within the Kohler design legacy and its introduction of vibrant, colorful products that began to great acclaim in 1927. This heralded moment created a cataclysmic shift within residential design, moving turn-of-the-century America away from the utilitarian white fixtures of the day by introducing color into bathrooms and kitchens – bringing warmth and personality into every home – and gracious living into everyday life.
