Wallpapers are usually made using ink. But that is not the case with Farrow and Ball wallpapers. They use their own traditionally created paint, which gives their collections a colour and texture unique to Farrow and Ball.
A hand-brushing technique is used to apply the ‘ground’ colour, and this, coupled with the application of another layer of paint to create patterns or stripes, makes for a wallpaper of the highest quality.
Farrow and Ball also use eco friendly FSC approved paper, and their own minimal VOC water based paint to create the perfect print and colours, and, to ensure strength and stain resistance, they add a layer of specially formulated glaze.
The variety is there, too. With florals, damasks, stripes and geometric patterns, some classic, others contemporary, there is a Farrow & Ball wallpaper for everyone, and each design is inspired from patterns from around the world.
Farrow and Ball paints have been based in Dorset since the company was first founded by John Farrow and Richard Ball and now wallpapers have been added to their portfolio.
While the company now has more than 40 showrooms in such places as New York, Paris and London, every piece of wallpaper is still made in their Dorset factory.
