Experience Century by Benjamin Moore, learn about 2019 Color Trends
and meet local artisans at Nashville’s premier makerspace, Fort Houston.
Century is the world’s first Soft Touch Matte Finish paint with never-before-seen depth in 75 exclusive colors. Similar to a soft leather glove, the tactile experience of Century’s Soft Touch Matte Finish is not easily achieved. Benjamin Moore’s craftsmen bring years of experience and exacting standards to the making of this paint. The formulation is intricately balanced–and made in small batches. Every can of Century is produced in the same Benjamin Moore workshop. And to guarantee true color, each can is delivered pre-mixed and sealed. Years of research led to a unique resin and coloring system that created an innovative finish that adds a tactile dimension to walls, creates energy in the room and has an unprecedented depth of color.
It’s both science and spectacle. Century is a new dimension in paint and design.

Gina Julian is a hard-edge abstraction painter who seeks to explore energy and motion through the use of flat color. Julian has long been fascinated by the effects of color on the human psyche and enjoys exploring the emotions that can be evoked by varying colors according to hue, saturation and value. Her color palettes are often experimentations of how colors interact with each other, and how the perception of color can be altered based on its surroundings. Julian also uses color variations to suggest movement in her works, often giving the viewer multiple perspectives on the direction of her crisp lines. Julian classifies her work as Optical Art.

Randy’s interest in woodworking first began as a small child making a box car with his father in his father’s shop. Through his younger years, Randy periodically helped his father with projects as well as taking on projects of his own. A few years ago his father passed on a few of his tools; this struck a passion in him that he says is still growing today. He began by building anything and everything, from porch swings to dog kennels. His knowledge and skills grew immensely in a very short period of time thanks to the guidance he received from his father. In 2015, Randy moved to Nashville. He brought all of his tools with him and started working out of the makerspace Fort Houston. He has since started his own company now known as Southern Maple Co. Randy is currently completing a project for a recording studio in Iceland.
