Apart from comfort, surely the other main ingredient on an interior designers shopping list should be to create a joyful home. Colour should be fun and at its best joyful. Simon March’s collection of paints from Siecle called “Colour Makes People Happy” does just that and he is now making all at Jamb chuckle too.
It may surprise some that such colours have entered the sacred world of Jamb. But considering the exotic parade of objects and artefacts that crosses the threshold of its Pimlico showroom on a daily basis, these unconventional paints are perfectly at home.
Colourways of this superior quality Dutch pigment include Lint, Trelleborg and playfully unusual names such as ‘I resent that snide remark’ and ‘I apologise for the two week hiatus’ and ‘The world has too many things in it why add something.’ Viewing the three dimensional form of the clog painted in each of the colours allows the surface to be seen under a number of lighting conditions simultaneously.
Jamb’s double-fronted Pimlico Road showroom houses its unique collection of antique and reproduction chimneypieces, grates, lighting, garden ornaments and furniture, as well as Will Fisher’s Hawker Antiques.
There is now a wall dedicated to this selection of sixty shades of paint.
