Down Pipe

No.26

A dramatic lead grey

Down Pipe, a dark lead grey, has definite blue undertones to it which deepen the complexity of the finish. Originally inspired by the colour used to paint downpipes and guttering, it has been embraced for use inside the home with fanatical zeal! This daringly dark hue is fabulous as a background to art, and extremely effective for use in halls to create a deeply dramatic entrance to the home. 

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: Dark Tones

Complementary white: Dimpse

Down Pipe is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 167.

ECO-FRIENDLY AND CHILD-SAFE

Back in 2010, we moved our entire range to an eco-friendly water base that’s low odour, low VOC and child-safe, becoming the first in the industry to do so. Easy to clean without harmful solvents, in tins that can be recycled again and again, our paints help to reduce the environmental impact of redecorating your home.


QUALITY FINISHES

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.


SAFETY INFORMATION

All Farrow & Ball finishes except Limewash contain isothiazolinones, which may produce an allergic reaction. Farrow & Ball Limewash contains calcium hydroxide which can cause severe damage in contact with skin or eyes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Luxurious bathroom I decided to transform my bathroom from a pale colour to a luxurious dark colour and picked downpipe to make the marble stand out more, The room now looks amazing and has a completely different feel I just love the colour....

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! I rescued this cabinet from a skip! I sanded it down & painted with Farrow & Ball Down Pipe egg shell & I’m so glad I did. Everyone thinks it was bought this way from some kind of designer store. I am a complete amateur. I have used chalk paint before to upcycle furniture, but I will always use this in future instead. I am very proud of it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great colour! F&B is great and Down Pipe is one of my favourite colours. On this occasion I used it in the bathroom. Going for a darker shade has given the room a contemporary flair that I was looking for.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast service It was easy to navigate the website and the sample pots arrived quickly. Its a pity that ordering proper sized paint tin from their website proved impossible.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great paint Needed to paint the old garage which looked very old and a mess. After painting not only does the colour look fantastic, but we have a near brand looking garage, with a sheen to the paint that enhances the colour further. Husband and I, wish we had chosen to paint the garage earlier, as it now looks so much better...
