Browsing the paints and palettes at this old-fashioned establishment is like stepping back in time. Founded in 1927, it is one of Chelsea’s longest-standing retailers, and the emphasis is on quality: you’ll find only the finest art supplies here. Expect a comprehensive selection of calligraphy tools and paper, along with print-making paraphernalia, graphic design gear and brushes of every size and specification. A picture-framing and mounting service is also available. Downstairs in the basement is a huge array of easels, as well as rolls of canvases and unprimed linens, a craft and modelling section and assorted portfolios.

This is a great shop that I love to browse in. The staff here are always friendly and helpful, and they always have things I want to buy.
Green and Stone is the jewel of Chelsea, and best art shop. My husband and I have been shopping at Green and Stone for more than 20 years. The shop is full of character, the sales assistants are all trained artists, most of them are successful professional painters, able to give advice on all products and their applications, and very friendly too! The quality of artist materials is very good unlike most art shops these days. Brushes last a long time, you can find pigments, good quality oil and watercolours paints, handmade wooden palettes and easels which only Green and stone sells in this country. They also have a large range of beautiful gifts and antiques. Definitely worth a visit!
Green and Stone has everything that an artist needs, whether you are aspiring or inspired, professional or hobbyist. The shop has an old fashioned charm that you definitely won't find in any other modern art shop. If you are looking for something that extra special , then head to Green and Stone and you won't be disappointed.
Fantastic staff, amazing products, great framing and ideal and unique presents. I step into a different world every time I visit
This is the best shop I have ever been in. Staff are most friendly and helpful .Lots of wonderful gifts and antiques
What a fabulous shop. I try and visit every time I am in the Kings Road, Chelsea! Quite the best range of art materials I have ever come accross and the staff are always so helpful and knowledgeable. I especially like all the art related gifts and antiques which are on display and I always manage to find exactly the right present every time! Thank goodness it hasn't become one of those chain stores.
