The speciality finishes offered by Ralph Lauren home paint as of 2015 are Polished Patina, Metallic, River Rock and Suede. Each speciality finish is available in a range of colors.
If a customer applies Polished Patina topcoat over a base coat of Ralph Lauren Eggshell Interior Paint, the finished result is smooth, but it creates an illusion of texture and movement, according to the light in the room, claims the Ralph Lauren website. Metallic gives a shimmering richness to the walls, creating a luxury finish that complements the home's unique decorative and architectural elements. With River Rock Speciality Finish, Ralph Lauren has in mind the natural weathered effect of rocks, worn away by water over time. Suede mimics the beauty of brushed suede; it adds a rich luxurious texture to the walls, with a paint that reflects and absorbs light.
A range of faux-technique paints is also available from Ralph Lauren: Indigo Denim captures the appeal of denim jeans in a range of blues; Bright Canvas aims to achieve the feel and texture of canvas fabric; and Antiqued Leather adds a feel akin to the texture of aged leather. Ralph Lauren is inspired by dynamic color; he was one of the first fashion designers to create a home collection, which debuted in 1996.
