The Painting & Decorating Association :: LAMD



London Association of Master Decorators was founded by Henry Campbell in 1908. The Association of Master Decorators (LAMD) united with the National Federation of Master Decorators of England and Wales in 1917 and the headquarters were located in the north of England.


The LAMD has naturally consisted of decorating firms resident in the London area (currently defined within the boundaries of the M25). However, membership is available to firms outside the area who may feel this to be of benefit, particularly if some of all of their work is located within central London.


For nearly 100 years the LAMD has had a continuation of service to the craft and trade of decorating. Trade conditions have always varied throughout the country and the problems experienced by firms in the north of England are not necessarily the same as those experienced in London and its surrounding area. Membership of the LAMD brings the opportunity to meet representatives from other firms and exchange opinions, views and discuss common problem areas. The LAMD attempt to address issues particular to the membership of the area. The LAMD has been dedicated and a recognised symbol of quality to the craft and trade skills of decorating.


Today, the London Association of Master Decorators serves as a branch of the Painting and Decorating Association (PDA).

Whether you are a decorator looking to enhance your reputation in the London market, or a domestic or commercial client wanting the reassurance of a vetted, reliable quality decorator to complete your project to a first class master quality standard, the LAMD can help.
