Uppark BP 581
Nearly an excellent rating, but we nearly had to return a whole roll
On one of the rolls there were a couple of small lumps of dried paint (the green background paint colour). On the wall these would have been obvious, casting shadows onto the paper. One chipped off allowing the white of the paper to show through. Clearly we couldn't use that on the wall and we thought we would have to return the roll, delaying the redecoration project when we had both specifically taken time off work to get it done. Fortunately though, these blemishes were not too far from the end of the roll and we managed to finish the wall without needing the blemished part of the roll. It was only a small thing, but it rendered a portion of the roll unusable and could have caused an extremely inconvenient delay if we'd had to exchange the roll.
The results look great, the general quality of the product is obvious and we would consider Farrow & Ball wallpaper again, but we would be nervous of similar manufacturing defects and would check very carefully. I hope this was a rare quality problem but more similar problems in future could put us of using Farrow and Ball wallpaper.
