Labeled as ‘Small Batch Interior Paint’, the fresh and unique colors of the Century color palette is a new dimension in paint and design with a depth of color not before seen:
Benjamin Moore Blue Muscari
Century is available in a palette of 75 colors exclusive to the product, ranging from mid-tones to dark. There are no whites or light colors in the collection. The colors are drawn from inspiration of natural elements such as minerals, gems, spices herbs and plants:
Benjamin Moore Century Bittersweet Vine
This innovative paint comes in colors that are brought to life with the first-ever Soft Touch Matte finish that offers a tactile experience similar to that of a soft leather glove:
Benjamin Moore Century Obsidian
Century comes in a matte finish only, but does have a slight shine to it unlike the traditional matte look. Developed by skilled craftsmen and chemists and unveiled after years in the making, this ultra-premium paint is so intricately balanced that its only made in small batches that will be pre-mixed and sealed to ensure the truest color and experience in ever can. Every can of Century is produced in the same Benjamin Moore workshop to guarantee true color:

The paint collection of 75 colors is broken down into seven categories:
Ten Plum Colors:
Ten Claret Colors:
Ten Copper Colors:
Ten Topaz Colors:
Ten Jade Colors:
Thirteen Sapphire Colors:
And Twelve Charcoal Colors:
Beautiful, gorgeous colors! I believe that this new Century collection is for high end design. Of course, because of their complexity, they will be more expensive. The samples are $10.00 each for a four ounce sample and for a gallon it will cost you $125.00. Even every fan deck is individually brush stroked with each color! Because of their matte finish, they should not be used in a high traffic area. You can not scrub this finish to clean. Think more of being used in master bedrooms, living rooms, dining rooms and libraries.
