Off-Black

No.57

A soft black

This soft black is one of the original Farrow & Ball colours - an uncomplicated name for a well loved classic. Off-Black is much more flattering to adjacent colours than stronger blacks because it feels so much milder in tone and has less of the underlying cool blue of Railings or Black Blue. 

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: Dark Tones

Complementary white: Dimpse

Off-Black is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 124.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely colour and finish Bought a tester to try but loved the colour so ended up buying the masonry and exterior paints for the woodwork and brickwork too. You just can’t beat the finish and quality of F&B paint. Looks stunning and a lovely paint to work with too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stunning Finish I purchased this paint to help refurbish some old wooden doors and window frames, with a bit of TLC, stripping varnishing, repairing wood and finishing with this paint it looks and feels brand new. So happy with the final result and the quality of paint. Easy to apply, super hardwearing and a perfect finish.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely colour, good coverage The colour is great, the paint was easy to use and provides great coverage. Matt paint does show a lot of marks including the children’s greasy fingers but I really like it
