Ralph Lauren paints --where to buy?

Posted by sayde (My Page) on

Ralph Lauren used to be carried at the Home Depot but no longer -- they got replaced by Martha Stewart. The nearest retail paint store that carries RL is now about 2 hours away.
I have heard many good things about the RL whites and ivories --colors that seem to work well in traditional settings. But where can I go to see and buy?

I did phone them and talked to a paint specialist who said she would send me some chips. But I would love to see the entire collection. Any thoughts?

Getting in the car and driving 2 hours would seem to be the only way to accomplish what you want to do.

RE: Ralph Lauren paints --where to buy?

Why would you want to do it in the first place. There are MANY, many better brands of paint readily available

RE: Ralph Lauren paints --where to buy?

I am on the hunt for RL paints. The other brands just don�t have the texture [from River Rock line] nor colors that RL Paints have.You can find stores that still carry RL Paints through a link on the Ralph Lauren Home page:,33

Here is a link that might be useful: Ralph Lauren Home/Paints

River-Rock may be hard to find now!

We're not carrying it anymore, since last summer it was announced that RL was discontinuing it. Now this spring, rep's heard it wasn't dropped....yet.

Suede is pretty popular though, and easier to use than River-Rock.

I'll have to respectfully disagree with the esteemed Christophern here...this ONE time!
* RL paint is considered/built-as a "Top-line" paint by Akzo-Nobel.
* Solids content (PVS) is one of the best out there.
* It's also been Low-VOC for many years now, though curiously not advertised as such very much?!
* It's very popular complaints from anyone. I actually prefer this paint over ACE!
* I don't hesitant in the least to recommend it.

I am a fan of Ralph Lauren paint and colors I love the canvas finish and antique leather finish. Call Ralph Lauren and ask them where you to buy. I live in Florida and called and they told me there is a retailer in Fort Lauderdale.

I used to buy those when I was living in Mass.

They told me that they took away from Home Depot since they were not doing the right thing selling paintings without the tools for the finish. In other words they were doing a mess.

RE: Ralph Lauren paints --where to buy?

All paint companies can match other colors. Paint stores like a Sherwin Williams or Benjamin Moore are usually better at it then your typical lowes or home depot employees. RL is a nice paint, but comparing it to ACE is an insult to RL. All paint is good compared to ACE. Try Sherwin Williams Duration. I have tried almost everything and Nothing compares!

RE: Ralph Lauren paints --where to buy?

Lowes carries it (at least in my area they do).

RE: Ralph Lauren paints --where to buy?

I know you can easily buy it online. River Rock and Suede too.

Try World Paint Supply.

RE: Ralph Lauren paints --where to buy?

Be careful buying it in another company's paint - the color of the base is likely to differ, which will change the color of the final paint.

There is no Lowe's in NYC and only a few, very obscure paint stores sell RL. It is one thing if Home Depot isn't carrying them. It is quite another if none of the mainstream or high end paint stores are. No idea what it means but I decided against the brand.
