I’m a huge fan of Ralph Lauren Paint and I was pretty well crushed when they stopped selling it at Home Depot. I’m really still not over it. But there is good news, or so I’m told. You can still buy it at ICI Paint Stores.
Who Makes Ralph Lauren Paint?
Ralph Lauren Paints is manufactured by AkzoNobel, an large international company whose roots can be traced back almost 400 years to Sweden.
They recently purchased ICI, which was the original manufacturer. There are still ICI Paint Stores in many areas, but trying to find one on the website is a task, to say the least.
I was told by an AkzoNobel sales rep who I cornered in Home Depot, that Ralph Lauren Paint is still available in ICI stores. If you buy some, please let me know so I can breathe easy!
Incidentally, AkzoNobel also manufactures Martha Stewart Living Paints, which replaced Ralph Lauren on Home Depot Shelves. I’ve never tried Martha’s paint, but I’m sure it’s great.
On an interesting note, I was surprised to hear that Ralph Lauren himself actually took an interest in the paint business. It wasn’t just a branding thing, for what it’s worth.
