About Mylands

Mylands is Britain’s oldest family-owned paint and polishes manufacturer and for over four generations, they have proudly crafted quality paints and wood finishes in London.

Their story began in 1884 when John Myland set up his modest shop in the heart of Lambeth. John was absolutely enthralled by colour, insisting on only the very best materials. This dedication lead to the creation of paint colours that were lustrous and flawless, with guaranteed quality.

Today, still in Lambeth, the last remaining paint manufacturer in London, John’s great-grandson Dominic Myland carries on the family tradition of perfection in paint.

Originally supplying to trade only, Mylands has been a best kept secret amongst interior design professionals for over 130 years.
