A dark and rich brown

Mahogany is an invitingly rich brown which takes its name from the dark red wood used by master cabinet makers like Thomas Chippendale. Packed with warm tones that give a unique depth of colour, the almost burnt brown pigments create a welcoming retreat which envelopes the room in an earthy darkness. Often used with Dead Salmon to enhance historic art and antique furniture. 

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: Dark Tones

Complementary white: Joa's White

Mahogany is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 47.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Sanctuary I have been looking for the perfect color for my bedroom for months. I have changed the color a few times. This is THE color. I love it. My room feels luxurious. The painter even commented on what a great color it is.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent paint I bought a Farrow & Ball Mahogany paint to re-paint a bannister, particularly because of other good reviews and it was the colour I wanted. I was not disappointed. The paint has the advantages of being water-soluble and quick drying. However, similar paints are often difficult to apply fast enough to get a smooth finishing without the problems of over-brushing as the paint dries. The F & B paint however was easy to apply quickly and smoothly without runs or the need to over-brush. Excellent finish after two coats. Very happy with the paint and would order again in future.
