Farrow & Ball paints are born and bred in Dorset, England, our home since 1946. Founders John Farrow and Richard Ball were passionate about creating richly pigmented paint to original formulations using age-old methods, and it’s a passion that is matched by our craftsmen today.
Our distinctive palette of 132 timeless colors is renowned for its depth and complexity. Brimming with only the finest ingredients and rich pigments, our paint responds extraordinarily to all types of light to bring your walls to life. This unique look transforms modern and traditional homes, large and small, inside and out, across the world.
Dead Flat is a traditional very flat matt finish which is suitable for use on interior woodwork, plaster, and metal surfaces, where an exceptionally matt, elegant finish is required. Not suitable for use in kitchens or bathrooms, on furniture or areas of heavy wear. Available in all Farrow & Ball colors. Preparation use Interior Wood Primer & Undercoat, Stain Block Primer or Metal Primer. An environmentally friendly eco-finish with low VOCs. 2% sheen level, not wipeable. This finish is the modern answer to ‘flatted lead’ used in the second quarter of the 18th century and is chosen today to either make a design statement, or when attempting to authentically replicate the traditional look of a period property.
