In the early 1900s, American entrepreneur Marshall Burns Lloyd invented a particular type of loom that was able to weave twisted paper, reinforced with steel, into a woven fabric that could be used to make furniture. Today, as a traditional manufacturer, Lloyd Loom continues to make furniture in the same way they did eighty-five years ago. They still use the same loom, the same twisted paper and produce many of the traditional chair designs.
They supply furniture to boutique hotels, architects, interior designers and cruise liners - to name but a few. Indoors Outdoors provides an historical overview of Lloyd Loom and the high-quality production process. Beautiful photography illustrates stunning furniture combinations for indoors and outdoors.
