Archive Collection: Cane


An earth-based yellow

A little less intense than India Yellow and slightly cooler than Sand, Cane is a wonderfully earthy yellow that has a surprising brightness to it when artificially lit.

They are also certified child- and baby-safe in accordance with Safety of Toys Part 3: Migration of certain elements (EN 71-3:2019+A1:2021).

Every one of our paint colours is available in a range of durable interior and exterior paint finishes, each rigorously tested to ensure an exceptional depth of colour and long-lasting finish. For the very best results, we always recommend using a Farrow & Ball Primer & Undercoat – see above for the correct tone for this colour.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Deep golden color looks great with brass Cane is a beautiful deep golden color that perfectly matches my brushed brass cabinet hardware. I don't see any green or orange undertones to muddy things up, and it is not as caramel colored as Sand or Wet Sand. Although it is not a red-based color, it looks great with Double Cream and Tallow. I'm so glad this archived color was available in a sample pot. Having just discovered F&B paints, all their colors are new to me, including their archived colors. Not being able to get archved colors in sample pots is frustrating as some of them work better with my planned project than the current collection of colors does. Please consider offering sample pots in archived colors, perhaps at higher price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful earthy golden yellow I've ordered a sample pot at the same time as a sample of the Ocelot wallpaper in Charlston Gray, London Clay and gold, and I am in love! I always wanted to have yellow in my new home, but as yellow is not everyone's cup of tea, I've given up until I saw Cane paired up with the wallpaper. They were just made for each other and I am already planning to paint my side door with it (I'm not allowed to paint the main door "because it's yellow"... ) in Exterior Eggshell and put the Ocelot wallpaper on an accent wall. This is a darker yellow and very mellow. It seems calm and toned and mature enough not to be overpowering but at the same time still a happy yellow. Simply beautiful. I Would recommend the Modern emulsion on walls as I have used it around the house and it is the only wall paint I buy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Long life paints This masonry paint is being applied to freshen up the existing after 10 years exposure. Just one coat has given a great depth of colour. The whole of our cottage has been painted with various F&B paints inside and out over a period of 20 years, and it lasts because of the quality of the product.
