We've long admired the time worn look of a tole shade, but replicating it takes true artisanal talent. Our Master Artisan, Tony Prete, was up for the challenge of developing a signature finish that would give a nod to authentic Tole (our requirements being a light masterful hand without the overworked faux) but also execute equally with any client-specified paint color.
After experimenting with several adaptations, we're more than pleased with the final result. To illustrate our excitement, we decided to take a few of our favorite metal shades – both old and new – and give it a go: Lafayette in Van Deusen blue, Carlyn in Racing Green and our new Abbott in Million Dollar Red.
All tole(d) we find it to be painted perfection, a tale to be continued by your very own color & fixture choice.
