For sympathetic decorating of historic and traditional properties, Farrow & Ball specialist finishes are the essential ingredients for creating an authentic look, which is what Farrow & Ball dead flat is for.
Dead Flat is a traditional, very flat matt finish, suited best to interior wood, plaster and metal surfaces, and comes in all 132 of our colours. This finish is the modern answer to ‘flatted lead’ used in the second quarter of the 18th century and is chosen today to either make a design statement, or when attempting to authentically replicate the traditional look of a period property. Perfectly suited to less busy areas, Dead Flat has an exceptionally matt, elegant finish.
Farrow & Ball’s Dead Flat can be used on a variety of surfaces – where appearance is more important than practicality.
It will not stand being vigorously cleaned so is not ideal for use in kitchens and bathrooms.
For kitchen units use either Estate® Eggshell for a flattish look or High Gloss for a traditional gloss finish.
