Farrow and Ball launches Dead Flat, its most matt paint ever


Everyone’s favourite paint and wallpaper brand Farrow & Ball has launched Dead Flat, its most matt finish to date

The multi-surface paint, suitable for walls, woodwork and metal, has been in the works for five years and has a revolutionary formula with a 2% sheen.

Not only does this minimise light bounce, but the matt quality also intensifies the depth of colour; music to the ears of anyone who likes to use colour confidently in their home.

Now, we know what you’re thinking: often, matt paint isn’t the most child-friendly option in a home.

Happily, Dead Flat is washable and wipeable with a Class 1 scrub rating (the highest rating possible), so it’s a practical option even in high-traffic, mess-prone areas such as hallways and kids’ playrooms.

Because it’s multi-surface, you can lean into the trend for applying a singular wash of colour across your walls, ceiling and woodwork, which can create the illusion of a larger space. Why not apply it to your radiators too so that they aren’t such a focal point in the room?

Like all 132 Farrow & Ball colours, the paint is water-based and low-odour and only contains trace Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs).
