About Annie Sloan and the Annie Sloan Stockist network:
As one of the world’s most respected experts in the field of decorative painting, Annie Sloan is often deservedly given the title of “a paint legend”. She has written over 20 books on paints, colours and techniques, which have led to total sales of well over 2 million books worldwide, printed in eleven languages.
This year, Annie is celebrating 25 years since she first invented her own unique decorative paint, called Chalk Paint®. This paint and the painting techniques Annie has developed around them have played an instrumental pioneering role in the furniture painting revolution.
The Annie Sloan Stockist network is comprised of over 1400 unique, independent shops throughout the Europe, North America, Southern Africa, Australasia and now Japan and the Middle East. In the UK, there are around 300 shops in the network and the list throughout the world grows daily. Each stockist is handpicked by Annie for their individual style and approach. Annie is a strong supporter of independent businesses and has refused all approaches from high street chains to stock her products. Chalk Paint® and her other products are only available from the Stockists’ shops and websites.
