Farrow and Ball was founded by paint pioneers John Farrow and Richard
Ball. Their passion lives on today as their original formulations and
production techniques have changed little over the years.
There is true alchemy to our paints. It’s the high levels of pigment,
rich resin binders, and the high refractory nature of our key
ingredients that produces that signature immersive depth of colour.
Farrow and Ball offers an edited palette of 132 paint colours that have
really earned their place on our colour card. Distinctive colour names,
many of which are historically rooted, are just as imperative.
The quirky paint names are iconic– who else would name a paint
Elephant’s Breath? The colour names have meaning though, Dead Salmon for
example, comes from a painting bill for the library at Kedleston Hall of
1805, and the Dead actually refers to the paint finish used.
Meticulously researched and reflecting our unique heritage the names are
as much part of our colours as the shades themselves.
Farrow & Ball oil based paint finishes are no longer available.
