Farrow & Ball

Harewood is proud to partner with Farrow & Ball who create bespoke colours and provide wonderful paints to decorate the opulent, and historic rooms of the Georgian country house.

Farrow & Ball are devoted to producing unparalleled paints and wallpapers that transform homes around the world. They are paint perfectionists, creating unmatched paint colours using only the finest ingredients and age-old methods which have withstood the test of time and the passage of many a fickle fad. They create handcrafted wallpaper using their own paints to print designs onto paper using traditional block and trough printing methods, which is what gives them their uniquely beautiful texture.

Their meticulous approach to producing paint and wallpaper, is rooted in our past. Farrow & Ball paints are born and bred in Dorset, England, in the same small town we’ve resided in since John Farrow, and fellow paint pioneer Richard Ball first founded the company.

From small beginnings their reputation for quality quickly spread until the pair were supplying paint to the Admiralty and the War Office. The company bucked the trend towards cheaper, acrylic paints with high levels of plastic, in favour of the original formulations and blend of carefully selected fine pigments and natural ingredients.

Over the years Farrow & Ball have been loved and appreciated by a dedicated and growing group of loyal customers all over the world who recognise the difference that attention to detail, quality ingredients and craftsmanship make.

Today, their quest to create unmatchable products continues. Over the years they have grown their range of paint finishes, and they’ve added wallpapers to their portfolio, but they’ve never forgotten their past. They may have over forty showrooms as far and wide as New York, Paris and London, but every batch of paint or wallpaper, however large or small, is still made in our factory in Dorset, England.
