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 4.0 out of 5 by 26.

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. For further information about our products, including guidance on safe use and application, click here to view our advice pages.

Exterior Eggshell and Exterior Masonry: Harmful to aquatic life with long lasting effects. Contains isothiazolinones. May produce an allergic reaction.

All other finishes: Contains isothiazolinones. May produce an allergic reaction.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautifully rich. The depth of tones/colours within mahogany paint, is just beautiful. I have painted old floorboards, and they have come up a treat. Better than I had hoped for, by far!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's only ever F&B I don't use any other paint now. The quality of F&B cannot be matched in my opinion even by those other quality brands. I used mahogany in my hallway, stairs and landing and I'm massively impressed. It is contemporary and yet classic. Used with all white it gives a clean and crisp finish. The depth of the colour is beautiful and it needed no more than two coats over light blue/grey walls to achieve superb results

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent results Having never used F & B paint previously I initially thought that spending money on undercoat and the finish paint was quite expensive. However, the finished result is stunning. The paint is wonderful to work with, it applies easily and washes out with water so tidying up afterwards was a breeze. The final result is worth every penny spent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Farrow & Ball Mahogany Amazing colour, so rich and deep with great warmth. Really happy with the end result. Used with Oxford Stone on adjacent wall. Also really impressed with how this paint cleans the paint stays on the wall!! Previous paint Jonstones (professional decorators paint - supposed to be wipeable) bleeds badly when wiped with a damp cloth - the Farrow & Ball paint stays put. Perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from And Just When You Thought Brown Was Just Brown F&B give an excellent description of the colour that as usual with F&B looks slightly different depending on the light source. The quality, finish and ease of use is as always to a high standard. Strangely enough when being applied it has a 'Damson' tint to the colour that suggested I was doing something wrong but as it dried it turned to that rich brown F&B talk about. But be warned it is quite dark complete with the warm tones as per its description.It is perhaps difficult to get excited by 'brown' but it has to be said it is a lovely brown when dry and looks great.
