Lloyd Loom of Spalding has been manufacturing furniture in the UK for over 25 years, using traditional techniques developed in the 1930s. The company’s portfolio has expanded to include furniture ideally suited for contract settings, owing to its strength and durability.
Lloyd Loom of Spalding furniture is created using a twisted paper and wire weave, which is constructed on original looms before being applied to high-quality steam-bent beech wood frames. The weave is available in a choice of 15 colours, as standard, including arctic grey, ivory, signal red, espresso, duck egg and tarragon.
Lloyd Loom seating has been specified for the Oak Bay Beach Hotel in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada. Situated on a stretch of Pacific Ocean coastline, the hotel has recently undergone a luxurious transformation. In keeping with its manor house-inspired architecture, the accommodation at the hotel is both comfortable and elegant.
Interior designer, Porada Design, specified the manufacturer’s Babbington two-seater sofas, together with the Babbington armchairs, as well as the Burghley, a classic Lloyd Loom armchair, which recreates the elegance of the past. All furniture was supplied in a Honey weave, with the hotel’s own choice of fabric for the cushions.
Lloyd Loom’s latest project is the BBC’s redeveloped Broadcasting House in London. The stylish Nemo chairs were specified for the new Media Café – a semi-public space adjacent to the main reception. The area is to be used as a waiting room for both TV and radio audiences, as well as a relaxed meeting space for BBC personnel. The cafe has been designed for intensive use, and features the BBC red and orange brand colours.
The Nemo chairs were supplied in three colours: brilliant orange, rust and purple. Julie Davenport, MD of Lloyd Loom of Spalding, comments: “We were excited and proud to be chosen to supply chairs for the Media Café in the new extended Broadcasting House. The interior designer, HOK, used a limited palette of striking colours throughout the building, and we were able to match exactly the brilliant orange, rust and purple they were looking for.”
