Farrow & Ball
This isn’t your ordinary paint. Manufactured in Britain, Farrow & Ball is one of the highest quality paint companies on the market. Their colors have historical references to cottages and castles throughout the world. They are extremely high-pigment colors, so it is important to paint samples on location to see their color variation. Their greatest finish is “Estate Emulsion,” which is a chalky matt finish and shows the best depth of color – completely unique from the other standard finishes.
One of the greatest features on their website is their “Suggest Neutrals” tool, which allows you to pick 2 neutrals after you choose your primary color, which would be appropriate for ceilings, woodwork and trim. Genius! And as if that wasn’t enough to get you excited, they are also environmentally friendly and offer low emission and produce less of an odour when painted. Their showroom is located at the D&D building, suite 1519, 979 Third Avenue or at 212.752.5544.
