New extended colour guide showcases Crown Trade’s historic and classic shades

Crown Trade has curated shades from both its Historic Colours and Classic Collection into a new guide to provide specifiers with an inspiring display of authentic shades in one format.

The new colour card features the renowned Crown Trade Historic Colours Collection, a total of 120 shades influenced by eight distinctive architectural and design styles including Palladian and Neo-Classical, Regency, Arts & Crafts, Gothic Revival, Victorian Eclectic, Art Deco and post-war ‘50’s Sketchbook.

And now for the first time, these historic colours are joined by the Crown Trade Classic Collection - a selection of 30 beautiful, timeless shades in classic neutral colours, which have been hand-picked from an extensive range of palettes.

The 14 page guide - designed to bring the shades to life and help specifiers understand more about the context and influence of the colours – blends together additional content including inspiring photography and an insight into the history and background to each of the colour palettes.

Crown Trade offers specifiers the ability to select authentic and accurate colours with confidence, choosing their shades from Crown Trade’s high quality products, which are manufactured with more than 200 years’ experience.

Deborah Orr, Marketing Manager of Crown Paints’ Trade brands, said: “Crown Trade Historic Colours and the Classic Collection are available in a wide-range of Crown Trade products, so specifiers can capture the authenticity of the past from a selection of quality coatings that are designed for modern living.

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

“As well as Crown Trade Clean Extreme, most Historic and Classic Colours are also available in finishes including Crown Trade Matt Vinyl, Silk Vinyl, Mid Sheen, Satin Finish, Eggshell, Acrylic Eggshell and Full Gloss.

“We can even offer some shades in our flame retardant coating, Crown Trade Timonox. With the preservation of historic and prestigious buildings so important, this system has the added benefit of providing a finish in-keeping with the décor of the interior environment, in a coating that slows down the spread of flame.”
