Shopper’s Diary: Farrow & Ball in NY

March 12, 2008 3:38 PM

Our favorite paint company has opened its first retail store in Manhattan. Located in a landmark building at 112 Mercer Street (212-334-8330), the store showcases the entire collection of Farrow & Ball wallpapers and paint (including eighteen new colors). Sample pots of all Farrow & Ball colors are available to purchase.

To celebrate, the company has launched Mercer Street Red, a dramatic crimson paint available only at this location. Twenty percent of sales from the color will be donated to the Cardiovascular Health Education Center (CHEC) at New York–Presbyterian Hospital/Columbia University Medical Center.
