You may have known that National Lumber has Benjamin Moore paint showrooms at eight of our locations: Newton, Mansfield, New Bedford, Salem, Berlin, Gardner, Boscawen NH and Oxford CT. Each of these showrooms is staffed by paint experts, serving both painting contractors and homeowners. The New Bedford showroom just opened earlier this year. So if you are in that area, please stop by and check it out.

Babel’s has been in business since 1950, when Victor Babel, Sr. and his wife Mickey opened the first Babel’s Paint and Wallpaper store in Norwood, MA. In the 1970’s, Victor’s youngest son, Vic Jr. and his wife Jeanne took over the business. By the 1990’s, the business had expanded to include professional designers and became renamed Babel’s Paint & Decorating Store. In 1996, Babel’s opened its second store in Jeanne’s hometown of Needham, MA. In 1999, Babel’s opened its third store in Foxboro, MA.

With 5 locations in Massachusetts, Babel’s not only has Benjamin Moore Paint Experts, but also have interior designers and colorists available. The Decorating Departments are at 4 locations, plus designers travel to clients’ homes. Babel’s in Brockton only has paint. We recommend that you call ahead to the Decorating Department at a location that is convenient for you and make an appointment for personal service.

With the addition of Babel’s to the National Lumber Family of Companies, you’ll continue to get the same great service, with the Benjamin Moore products you trust. But now you’ll also have access to decorating and interior design expertise. With these expanded services, we hope to serve our contractor and homeowner customers alike even better than before.

If you work with a specific National Lumber representative, please ask about these products and services. If you don’t have a specific contact, you can email insidesales@national-lumber.com and we will have someone contact you.

Thank you for your business. We are honored to be your supplier for building materials and more!
