Colours are retired to our archive collection with a very heavy heart, but in the happy knowledge that they are always available to order. Some may have fallen out of favour, others are deemed too close to another Farrow & Ball shade, and one or two are reinvented with a twist to appear on the next colour card – but whatever the reason, they won’t be gone forever.
With the introduction of our nine new shades for 2018, we have retired Clunch, Book Room Red, Archive, Drawing Room Blue, Black Blue, Ringwold Ground, Smoked Trout, Tunsgate Green and Yellowcake from the colour card, but don’t worry, you can still order them from the archive. Archive colours can be ordered in the following finishes: Modern Emulsion, Estate Emulsion, Estate Eggshell, Full Gloss and Exterior Eggshell. However, we no longer produce sample pots or colour swatches of archive colours.
Archive colours can be ordered by phone on +44 1202 876141 or through any Farrow & Ball showroom or stockist.
