Vincent Sheppard at Dunas Lifestyle, Quinta do Lago, Algarve, Portugal. We are an official stockist with an attractive showroom display.
The roots of LLoyd loom chairs go back to 1917 when wicker strollers and prams were very popular. Marshall Burns Lloyd set out to find a more durable, softer material and in 1921 the patent was sold to the English furniture maker, William Lusty who produced a collection of furniture that became all the rage in the 1930's. The original factory was destroyed by an air raid and the large scale production ended. In 1992, Belgian company Vincent Sheppard decided to pick up this tradition of woven paper furniture.

Vincent Sheppard continues to stay true to the tradition of Llyod loom by continuously reinterpreting the legacy of woven painted furniture. It has reinvented the tradition by introducing imaginative and contemporary designs that work both in classic and modern environments.It is seen across the world in luxury homes, restaurants, hotels and golf clubs and is now world leader in Llyod loom furniture.

We first saw Vincent Sheppard furniture during our years living in Brussels and just find it to be the most comfortable, yet stylish and chic furniture for all kinds of homes. Now with an outdoor collection, produced with especially treated loom it can be recommended for outdoor living too here in the Algarve. We have the ranges of colour samples and some pieces in our Almancil Showroom.
