Dominic Myland - Managing Director - Mylands
Traditional craftsmanship and finest quality from London’s oldest paintmakers.
For over 130 years, Mylands has remained one of the best-kept secrets of London’s master decorators and interior design specialists.
Mylands has been manufacturing quality interior and exterior paints and polishes since 1884, and is proud to be the oldest British paint manufacturer still owned and managed by the founding family.
Our beautifully made products are wonderful to use and a joy to behold, with rich coverage and a depth of colour that puts other paints in the shade.
Our unique range of products deliver something very special. That’s why we’re the first choice for the most exacting residences and the most visually stunning film and theatre sets.
And now, for the first time, you too have the opportunity to enhance your most precious possessions with exquisite colours and finishes from the Mylands range, and enjoy the very highest standards of quality for your home.
From humble beginnings - four generations of master craftsmen.
Our story begins in 1884 when ‘Honest’ John Myland set up his modest shop in the heart of Lambeth. Unlike some other paintmakers of the day, John was absolutely in thrall to the art of the colourman, insisting on only the very best materials that would allow him to create colours that were lustrous and flawless, with guaranteed quality.
Today, we’re still in Lambeth, the last remaining paint manufacturer in London, and John’s great-grandson Dominic Myland carries on the family tradition of perfection in paint.
We’re preserving the time-honoured, traditional approach to making the finest quality paints and finishes, while making the most of the latest technical advances in paint development. By blending the old with the new, we’re creating time-honoured shades and finishes with all of the benefits of modern performance and technology.
