Lanval

The Color: A rich brick red, this color has hints of rust and burgundy mixed together. It’s sure to stay loyal and true and lends a masculine richness to any project.

The Name: Lanval is a character in a story by the same name by Marie de France. One of King Arthur’s knights, Lanval falls in love with a fairy woman and is given many gifts. However, he is forbidden to reveal who his lover is or risk losing her forever. Unfortunately for Lanval, he lets Guenevere goad him into telling about his lover. But because he reveals her identity to protect his (and her) honor, his fairy lover forgives him and takes him away from Arthur’s court so the two of them can live happily together.
