The Crown Trade Historic Colour Collection – authentic shades with modern appeal

Crown Trade Historic Collection - 2

If you’ve got a project that draws on the past, then the Crown Trade Historic Collection is on hand to offer an authentic look you can rely on – offering classic shades in some of the brand’s best known, time-proven products.

Bringing hues to life that stretch back hundreds of years, the Crown Trade Historic Colour Collection draws on eight of the most distinctive architectural and design styles to influence British interiors.

Featuring the major design movements of Palladian and Neo-Classical, Regency, Arts & Crafts, Gothic Revival, Victorian Eclectic, Art Deco and post-war ‘50’s Sketchbook’ the collection enables decorators to introduce shades that are personal to the design of an historic building.

A total of 120 historic colours are featured, within eight carefully researched colour palettes.

And while the shades are shaped by the past, the formulations are rooted firmly in the future, with the collection benefitting from modern technology to deliver a quality finish that stands the test of time.

Nikki Cosgrove, Crown Trade Brand Manager said: “Decorators can have complete confidence in the authenticity and accuracy of these historical colour palettes and at the same time offer their clients the benefits of the very latest advances in coating technology.

“Crown Trade Historic Colours are available in a wide range of Crown Trade products, so you can capture the authenticity of the past, from a selection of quality coatings designed for modern living.

“The choice includes Crown Trade Clean Extreme Scrubbable Matt, which is often selected for heavy duty areas such as hospitals and schools due to its super scrubbable qualities, allowing surfaces to be returned to their pristine condition time and time again.

“The Historic Colour Collection shades are available in this product, offering a flat matt, traditional-looking finish in authentic period colours, with the benefit of an advanced formulation to provide exceptional durability and cleanability.

“As well as Crown Trade Clean Extreme, Historic Colours are available in finishes including Crown Trade Matt Vinyl, Silk Vinyl, Mid Sheen, Satin Finish, Eggshell and Full Gloss, to name a few.
