A Wolverhampton restoration company has signed a deal to sell vintage paint and wallpaper for authentic historical buildings.
The Vintage Paint Company, which provides materials for restoration projects on vintage cars, steam engines, trains, planes, tanks and boats, has moved into historical building restoration by signing a deal with Little Greene Paint Company.
Vintage Paint will now carry a wide range of authentic period paints from across the ages – from Georgian and Regency to Victorian and evocative periods of the 20th century.
It will also carry a range of wallpapers with designs by the likes of William Morris and Sanderson.
It is the first time the company has moved into home restoration, and the deal it has just signed will make it the exclusive supplier of Little Greene products in the Midlands.
The range is suited either for authentic restoration projects, or for people looking to get a genuine old-fashioned feel in their homes when doing the decorating.
Melanie Pursglove, the founder and managing director of the Vintage Paint Company, said: “This is an exciting move for the Vintage Paint Company.
“Up until now we have only been able to give advice on paints and finishes for interior and exterior property restoration projects without supplying product.
“Now we are able to supply authentic colours and materials to back up our specialist advice.
“The paints and papers are of the highest quality and are accepted by English Heritage and other bodies for the renovation of listed and historic buildings. They are also suitable for anyone wishing to give a traditional feel to their property project.”
