In fact, we sell more Benjamin Moore paint than anyone else in the Midwest. But it doesn’t stop there. We also have the latest in high-quality wallpaper and window treatments, as well as paint-related products and accessories to help you get the job done.

When it comes to inspiration, you know it when you see it. So come on by one of our many Chicagoland locations. You bring us your inspiration, and we make it happen.

Since 1907 we’ve been bringing your inspiration to life in your home, thanks to our Benjamin Moore paint and interior design products & services. When in 1907 Jacob Christian Licht opened his first paint store in Chicago at 3150 West Twelfth Street, he simply thought of himself as a business person ready to give his first customers what they wanted: “top quality painting products and superb service.” Since its inception, the business started by Jacob Licht has flourished and grown to a group of 48 stores in the Chicagoland area.
