Established in 1829 by two young Scottish entrepreneurs James Craig & Hugh Rose, Craig & Rose became renowned for manufacturing superior quality paints, and professional painters and decorators quickly adopted it as their brand of choice. Today, Craig & Rose combines its heritage with current trend expertise to offer a variety of ranges for the modern home.

“We’re so pleased to work in partnership with the BIID to deliver their annual conference. We know many of our interior design community find it a great opportunity to come together to gain valuable insights, and the BIID have also been a great partner to eporta for the last four years” Aneeqa Khan, CEO & Founder of eporta comments.
