Within each of those products types there’s a huge variety of options in terms of colouration and effects covering everything from the conservative – to the adventurous palette.

The entire TrendyPaints range is waterborne – which makes them suitable for application inhouse, or on – site, which makes them even more attractive.

We’re looking forward to producing finished projects in the TrendyPaints here at Metal Monkey Designs – but also to building up the TrendyPaints footprint across the UK through Specifications – and via selected Partners and Applicators.

What sealed the deal for us was the company – and the people behind Trendy Paints who have been enthusiastic and quick to respond to all our questions and demands – getting us quickly to our current status of launch in the UK.

Testimonial from DG Pro Interiors
Sep 18, 2017
We approached Metal Monkey Designs with a very vague outline as to what was required, from the outset they advised, suggested and provided guidance to us in areas that we had little expertise.

From placing the order through to installation, they were professional in their approach, but more importantly they were approachable, and we felt like we could trust the information they gave us.

We were kept abreast of their progress at every stage and they delivered an extremely high quality product ahead of schedule, with excellent aftercare information, allowing us to fulfil our O&M requirements with the minimum fuss Vicki Taylor

We took a Marc Newson Orgone Chair and gave it a makeover. Everyone knows what a classic this chair is on its own – but it looks absolutely stunning finished on the inside with a specially formulated bright red – and topped off with a high gloss chrome on the outside. Awesome! Maybe we can do something for you?

How about this for a reception desk? This project involved creating a whole new metal – by mixing Aluminium, Bronze and Brass together – and then texturing the surface before applying a dark patina as the final touch before polishing to a bright metal finish.

Reach for the skies with Metal Monkey Designs

Check out our latest ‘How to’ video as we demonstrate how to make an extra ordinary paper airplane – Metal Monkey Style. See how basic printer paper can be coated in our Liquid Metal Coating and then polished to give it the shine necessary, yet can still be folded and bent like ordinary paper.

Such an innovative and special process opens the doors for many designers and allows them to think big. Limitations tossed aside, this process can create magnetic wallpaper, rustic bronze tapestry, metal finish leather, copper origami or even steel restaurant menus.
