Modern Eggshell

An elegant blue that is wonderfully down to earth, inspired by the cloth of everyday workwear originally made in the French city of Nîmes.  

Modern Eggshell is our toughest interior finish, adding lasting colour and protection to interior wood, metal and concrete. It’s even tough enough for floors and kitchen cabinets.

Key features

Mid sheen

Mid sheen

Our super-tough mid shine finish with a 40% sheen.

Our deeper, richer colours are available in a range of finishes with different sheen levels. Sheen always affects how colour appears: the same shade in gloss can look very different in matt. That’s why we specifically adjust the formula for every finish to make sure the balance is exactly right and you get the colour you were expecting. Our colours and finishes are formulated together, so you simply can’t have one without the other.

Our most durable finish

Modern Eggshell is our toughest finish — it’s even suitable for floors. Formulated by our experts using the finest ingredients, it’s washable, wipeable and stands up to scuffs or scrapes.

100% water based

100% water based

We’re proud to have been the first in the industry to transition to a completely water based range back in 2010. As a result, all of our finishes, including our tough trim and floor paints, are made with a low-odour, low-VOC water base that scores A+ for indoor air quality. 
 
Plus, our water based paint doesn’t discolour over time like solvent based paints can. So your spaces stay beautiful for longer. 

Toy safe

Toy safe

This finish is independently tested and certified toy-safe in accordance with Safety of Toys Part 3: Migration of certain elements (EN 71-3:2019+A1:2021). That means you can and a splash of colour to toys, cribs and other surfaces little ones come into contact with. Our paints also have hardly any odour and don’t need any solvents to clean up, so you can breathe easy during application and beyond.
