Farrow and Ball paint at Masseys in Swadlincote Derbshire. Farrow and Ball paint was born and bred in Dorset, England. They’ve resided there since John Farrow, and fellow paint pioneer, Richard Ball first founded the company in 1946. Their passion for making paint to original formulations, using only the finest ingredients and age-old methods, is matched their craftsmen today.
There is true alchemy to Farrow and Ball paints. It’s the high levels of pigment, rich resin binders, and the high refractory nature of our key ingredients that produces their signature immersive depth of colour. And, to ensure Farrow and Ball paint meets their obsessively high requirements, they scrupulously test every batch before it even reaches the tin. There’s a reason Stiffkey Blue is the precise colour of the extraordinary mud found at Stiffkey beach in Norfolk!
