Experience a new dimension in paint

Century is the world’s first Soft Touch Matte Finish paint with never-before-seen depth in 75 exclusive colours.

THE CENTURY STORY

Craftsmanship, precision and beauty have been the heart and soul of Benjamin Moore since 1883. Today, our newest innovation, Century, continues this legacy.

Colour like this has never been seen before.

Century is more than paint; it's an experience.

The artisan believes in precision. In keeping strict standards when not surpassing them. And more than anything... in stirring the senses.

Years of research has yielded an intricately balanced formula that is produced in small batches under the careful watch of a specially trained Century craftsman.

Something We Haven't Seen Before

Take a deeper look at the inspiration behind Century paint and its distinctive Soft Touch Matte Finish.

Similar to a soft leather glove, the tactile experience of Century's Soft Touch Matte Finish is not easily achieved.

Every can of Century is produced in the same Benjamin Moore workshop. And to guarantee true colour, each can is delivered pre-mixed and sealed.
