Lisse & Belle
Lisse & Belle superior finish furniture & kitchen paint is our own brand of paint that we use to achieve our much loved, durable and smooth finish.
Lisse & Belle is French for smooth and beautiful and that is exactly what the paint is. It’s smooth to apply being the consistency of double cream. It creates a beautiful timeless flat finish which is admired by many.
Having tried many different paints over the years we felt that the market leaders (usually chalk paints) were not durable enough for kitchens, sometime too thick, which made it difficult to avoid brush marks, and often needed to be sealed with a wax of varnish. We felt that there must be a better paint to use, but we did not want to lose the flat finish and environmental properties that most furniture paints promised. We contacted countless suppliers and tested their paint and fortunately found a UK manufacturer that had the perfect paint. After using it ourselves for a year with fantastic results they agreed to allow us to share it with the public, so Lisse & Belle was born.
We have been delighted with the responses we have received, with other professional furniture painters and amateurs coming back for more time and time again. The full colour collections can be seen below.
