Brilliantly British: Farrow & Ball
About Farrow & Ball
British craftsmen in paint and paper, Farrow & Ball is dedicated to creating unmatched paint and wallpaper using only the finest quality ingredients and high levels of pigment, following in the footsteps of their founders John Farrow and Richard Ball. Today the unique Farrow & Ball look transforms modern and traditional homes, large and small, inside and out.
Known for their distinctive and inspiring paint colours and handcrafted wallpapers, made using their own paint, Farrow & Ball has been producing its range in
Dorset, England since 1946.
Their thoughtfully created palette of 132 paint colours is renowned for its depth and complexity, bringing walls around the world to life. From subtle neutrals and muted pastels, to lively accents and rich dark hues, every one of their colours has been created with care and consideration to ensure they work beautifully both alone and as part of a scheme.
Farrow & Ball wallpaper is quite simply unique. Made using real Farrow & Ball paints and traditional trough and block-printing methods gives an exquisite, tactile look and feel that radiates character and enables you to create a seamless collection between paint and paper. Their collection is always growing, but with more than 300 designs ranging from stripes and geometrics to florals and damasks, there’s a paper to suit any style of home.
Every tin of paint and roll of wallpaper passes through rigorous testing and is constantly being refined. Available in a complete range of finishes — from high shine Full Gloss, to signature matte Estate Emulsion — you can experiment with colour, pattern and finish to create a unique look in your home.
Farrow & Ball has locations across New York with a new showroom opening on Atlantic Avenue in the Boerum Hill section of Brooklyn in 2017.
