Over 100 years ago, Marshall B. Lloyd founded the Lloyd Manufacturing Company in Menominee, Michigan where the company still manufactures and operates from today. In 1916, the brand developed their innovative Lloyd Loom manufacturing process and patented it in 1917. The name Lloyd Flanders came about when Don and Dudley Flanders purchased the company in 1982. In the same factory where it all began, the company continues to craft timeless collections and impeccable woven furniture year after year. With the slogan “woven for life”, the brand guarantees quality and durability of their products with generous warranties. The company’s reputation is solidified in every stunning piece crafted.
Lloyd Flanders furniture is crafted from three main materials: Lloyd Loom, woven vinyl, and antiqued teak; all of which are crafted to stand the test of time. The brand’s Lloyd Loom is still made using the same process developed back in 1917. The process weaves continuous cellulose strands into wicker fabric that will not crack or peel, resulting in a consistent and smooth weave. Aluminum is encased in the loom fiber to make the material more stable and durable. Once Lloyd Loom is woven, it’s sealed to withstand the elements. Each piece of Lloyd Loom furniture is fitted in place on its frame, and trimmed by hand. Lloyd Flanders furniture that is crafted from woven vinyl is able to stand up to intense weather conditions, and is better known as “all-weather wicker”. The brand’s woven vinyl has added UV inhibitors that prevent sun damage and fading. Woven vinyl products are made on aluminum frames that are resistant to corrosion and very durable. The best examples of the brand's collections that use woven vinyl are the romantic Mackinac collection and the modern Contempo collection. Lloyd Flanders furniture made from their antiqued teak is sustainably-grown and harvested from only FSC-certified forests in Brazil. The company's high quality teak wood is perfect for patio furniture because of its saturated oil content, durability, and tight grain. Teak products from the brand are resistant to rot and will stay strong as they age; teak can withstand climate changes and inclement weather.
In all three materials, the brand makes dining sets and lounge sets. The company also makes a variety of separates from chaise lounges and loveseats to bistro tables and coffee tables. The company also produces a selection of patio accessories including patio cushions, pillows, and serving carts. All of the brand's products are made to be extremely durable and ideal for outdoor settings. Lloyd Flanders furniture is the perfect addition to any outdoors space, instantly adding sophistication and modern elegance.
