Since humble beginnings in rural Dorset, Farrow and Ball have set aside from other paint companies by creating a product of quality, using only the finest quality ingredients and rich pigments.
The original founders, John Farrow and Richard Ball, went against the trend of the 40s, shunning acrylic paints. Instead, they invested in making paint using age-old production methods, with natural minerals and high levels of rich pigment which they continue to use today.
All of their paints and wallpapers are made using meticulous, traditional methods, ensuring the paint has its signature depth and rich pigment. Every person, from the craftsmen making the paint and wallpaper, to the Colour Consultants advising people on colour in their home, contributes to maintaining Farrow & Ball’s high standards.
Farrow and Ball are meticulous in production and quality control, ensuring that every pot of paint has its signature depth and richness.
That's the big difference... heritage, quality and depth of pigment.
