I have mentioned before that I am a great fan of the Farrow & Ball range of paints. This month I thought I’d tell you a bit about the history of the company and why I think their products are so good.
John Farrow and Richard Ball first met when they working in a clay pit in Dorset. They soon realised they had similar ideas and proceeded to form the company in 1946.
Bucking the trends of the industry from day one, they abandoned acrylic paints and went back to traditional methods of paint making using natural minerals with high levels of pigments that they still use today.
