The Lloyd Loom process was invented in 1917 by the American Marshall B. Lloyd, who twisted kraft paper round a metal wire, placed the paper threads on a loom and wove them into what was to become the traditional Lloyd Loom fabric. Lloyd Loom chairs quickly became very popular in the United States and in 1921, Marshall B. Lloyd sold his patent to an English manufacturer, W (William) Lusty & Sons, who used the Lloyd Loom fabric in an to create a collection of typical English utility furniture.
In the 1930’s Lloyd Loom furniture was used by hotels, restaurants and tea rooms. Vincent Sheppard the Belgium Manufacturer have been using the Lloyd Loom technique to produce stunning furniture with a modern look. At Lagoon we love the design and the quality of this stylish furniture.
