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 245.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a fab colour! I’ve used this colour in various rooms in my house and each time the room has been transformed! Although this is a beautiful deep grey, in different light conditions this colour has the ability to change hue - sometimes a lovely calm blue or a gentle green tone can be seen! Coupled with the actual quality of the paint, I just love using Farrow&Ball:)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stunning! Where to begin, we bought Downpipe to bring back to life some really tired looking listed cottage interior doors and skirtings. Couldn’t be happier with the results. We also bought a heck of a lot of Pavilion Gray and Teresa’s Green and Parma Gray and have spent lockdown painting items such as Welsh dressers, fireplaces, fitted wardrobes in child’s room, little tables, front door and garden bench. I wouldn’t buy any other paint, the finish is just classy and superb. In the past we’ve also used Tallow on the dark gloomy beams in an otherwise spacious basement room, making it light and airy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality Product. Easy to use, lovely finish. I wouldn't choose any other paint for furniture or kitchen cupboards. It goes on really well and dries beautifully. I painted my kitchen cupboards and the paint wipes clean every-time. Wouldn't of had the confidence to paint the cupboards with any other paint.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best paint on the market I have used F&B paint for years. It is the easiest to apply product and odourless. The paler shades are subtle, the darker ones strong but also subtle. Both the interior and exterior eggshellS have very tough finishes which do not chip as easily as any other.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Shop front! We painted the outside of the shop and although we didnt paint it the painter said it was great paint to work with..We love the end result.
