Off-Black 4.8 5 12 12
Very classy I have painted our coffee table in Off-Black as this was the best colour to match the white and black woven sofas. The result is a very elegant and classy table with a great hard wearing surface. October 14, 2014
Easy peasy. One application, lovely subtle colour, dried to the touch much quicker than I had anticipated, I haven't put it in a high footfall area but it certainly did the job and looks lovely. October 13, 2014
Transformed our front door Like many people I am a total fan of Farrow and Ball and both my houses, inside and out are painted in it. Have used Off Black before on masonry and love the effect, but had not used it in eggshell before. A friend, when she saw it, said it looked " rich. " Not sure if she meant the house looked like a rich person lived in it, or it was a rich tone? Have had many compliments this week, so I made a good choice in the end. September 3, 2014
Stylish Black We used this on one wall of our staircase to make a dramatic wall on which to hang lots of pictures and it looks great. We painted the other walls and ceiling in Wevet and that's a great combination, especially with brilliant white woodwork. It goes on looking jet black but dries to a slightly more muted recently cleaned chalkboard sort of a colour. As with all F&B paints it has great depth of colour and a lovely finish. The only downside is that it mhows up marks very easily, though that is more about the dark colour than anything wrong with the quality of the paint. July 31, 2014
Great finish, easy to apply I used the paint for cast iron radiators and for old cast iron bath and it was easy to apply to both, great covering, perfect consistency and overall great result even through I am an amateur with not much experience. For the bath tub I didn't even use the right primer, just black metal paint underneath and it still worked very well, leaving no brush marks. May 10, 2014
A beautiful colour We bought Off Black after seeing it in on the website and have used it on the floor throughout upstairs and on the staircase which has literally just had its second coat. It's a great paint to work with as it goes down so well and the finish is perfect. We love it. It works really well with Lamp Room Grey which we used in our study. April 21, 2014
This color has great depth! Love this shade of black! Exactly the color I was looking for! February 18, 2014
FABULOUS Great colour. I used it as floor paint on a tatty old cottage staircase with shabby, patched boards. Couldn't get the right colour and then discovered this. It is absolutely perfect and I have had tons of comments about how great it looks. I am thrilled. July 11, 2013
