Innovation. Sustainability. Aesthetic.


"Since 1895, our family-owned company Caparol has been manufacturing innovative coatings meeting the highest standards in terms of quality and environmental friendliness. CAPAROL ICONS is an extraordinary product specifically created for elegant surface finishes with great colour depth. Our 120 shades evoque iconic moments of colour culture and create a unique atmosphere. The iconic collection was specifically designed for interiors with luxuriously coloured  walls. CAPAROL ICONS is produced in Germany in the highest manufacturing quality. Being a chemist and entrepreneur myself, I am personally committed to developing the best paints in terms of innovation, aesthetics, and sustainability. Every can of CAPAROL ICONS contains part of our tradition, our expertise, and our passion for colours. That's why we like to call it ‘Beloved Paint!’"

We have contributed to the history of colours and paints, now we are retelling the story

Since 1895, our family business has been dedicated to the development of innovative coatings. During five generations, we have shaped the history of colour culture – with CAPAROL ICONS we are retelling the story.

Colours are part of our awareness of life, our memories, and our sense of style. A team of  art historians, interior designers, trend scouts and colourists dedicated itself to the relationship between space, colour  and time. The research covered the last 7 decades culmulating in 120 elegant, timeless, iconic interior colours that are inspired by the colour culture of each decade.

The unique colour collection consisting of 120 iconic shades was created with great passion and experience. Each nuance is a tribute to time with its very own inspiration and history. The harmonious collection features powdery, elegant, contemporary  and classic tones for bespoke and sophisticated interior design.

The curators' ambition was to create a timeless collection that would meet the requirements of various interior styles and lighting conditions.  CAPAROL ICONS colours are easy to combine. The elegant shades of CAPAROL ICONS inspire new ways of seeing and experiencing colours. The matt elegant surfaces of the CAPAROL ICONS interior paints create rooms with a unique light and sophisticated athmosphere.
