Mahogany

No.36

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 4.2 out of 5 by 32.

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.

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 Great colour I wanted to paint a very unpleasant bannister. In 2 coats this paint transformed it. I’m so pleased with the result. Farrow and Ball are my favourite company for paint.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful colour I bought Mahogany exterior eggshell paint for my front door. A small tin was more than enough for the door so I decided to use it for my old conservatory windows and doors. It completely transformed the look of it! Old, tacky looking frames look elegant and wooden now thanks to Mahogany colour. We love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautifully warm pigments I painted over the beams in my cottage with this as they had previously, unfortunately, been painted white. The colour looks wonderful and absolutely hums with the warm notes of mahogany whilst at the same time giving a real feeling of the old wood of the cottage; the matt effect of this 'estate' emulsion is really velvety and marvellously atmospheric. It also has great coverage. I am absolutely thrilled with the result!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from used for exterior barge boards I bought this for painting the barge boards, it gave good coverage and was used in tandem with the recommended undercoat. A good dense colour and easy to clean brushes at the end of the day. I am a regular user of F&B products and will continue to do so.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful colour. If Eggshell water it down 10%. I wanted a historic colour that was brown and yet picked out subtle tones of red from the wooden floor. This is a beautiful colour. WARNING * Water it down about 10 per cent. I used this colour in eggshell to paint the kitchen cupboards the same as the emulsion walls. The pigment in this paint dries so fast that it drags when you go over the same area only seconds after applying, leaving horrible results. I was then told to water it down slightly. It completely transformed the painting experience and results. In fact I water down all the F & B Eggshell I use now, so much better. That and using Corona paintbrush from the U.S.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very easy to use Currently redecorating my flat and wish I had used Farrow and Ball from the start, not just for the superior appearance but because it is much easier to use than other brands. It dries evenly without streaks, runs or blotches, there is no sanding between coats, and the results really do look better. I will definitely be using F&B from now on. The extra expense is worth it, no doubt at all - the job is easier and the finished article looks so much better!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid Great colour. Looks good with sun light, evening, lamp light. Put it straight on with no Nader coat, so took three coats to look great. Would recommend as far as interior gloss goes for old cupboards.
