General Paints Group: An Irish Heritage Paint Line Comes to the US

July 18, 2019

Founded by Ronan O’Connor in 1953, General Paints Group is a family-run Irish paint company known for its reliably high-quality products. The company recently launched a new line of premium paints called Curator, a designer collection of 144 colors taking inspiration from the work of an eclectic group of Irish designers, painters, sculptors, potters, and artisans. Now available at Ring’s End stores in Darien and Fairfield and at McDermott Paint & Wallpaper in Greenwich, the Curator collection will be available in California and Oregon later this year.

Here’s a look:
