A little bit of history of Farrow & Ball.
“Farrow & Ball originally developed Dead flat over 70 years ago, recreating the 18th century ‘flatted lead’ paint effect. This traditional method involved teams of artisans painstakingly layering coats of paint. Creating a deep, rich and pigmented matt look. This was usually reserved for the formal reception rooms of a house.”
“Tom Helme made a chance discovery of a tin of Dead Flat by Farrow & Ball in the early 90s, this was a pivotal moment in creating the Farrow & Ball we know today. Tom as impressed by the simplicity, quality and depth of colour of the paint. He sought out the manufacturing company and together they bought it, setting the brand on its current direction!”
