Lloyd Loom – Limehouse
This incredible Lloyd Loom cane seat was left behind by previous tennants in an empty work space in Limehouse. Made in the UK under license from Lloyd Loom by the William Lusty and Sons Company, these pieces were hugely popular mid-century. Now bright gloss blue, the original gold finish remains evident on the undercarriage, where the place the label would have been is still evident, as is a date mark of Oct 1955. The sprung upholstered seat is covered in its original crosscut plush velvet upholstery from that decade.
A fresh coat of paint should give this piece a contemporary look. Wait to see what we decide to do with the seat cover!
