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.

Why JC Licht

In the past 10 years, my husband and I have renovated 3 different homes. I met Sue Haughton and Nancy Keegan while I was trying to select paint colors, window treatments and wall coverings. I’m an interior designer, so I typically know what I’m looking for, whether for myself or a client. But… I happened to build a trusting relationship with Sue and Nancy. I started to ask their opinions and seek out their advice. Before I knew it, I was bringing all my ideas to them and work as a team. I highly recommend both of them for any project. Whether is one room or an entire home. They are both highly talented, professional ! I could not have done our homes or my clients without them. Thank you so much!

Coming to the store during a snowstorm, the manager of the Plainfield opened the door after closing early giving me 1 gallon of paint to finish my project. Thank you
