In October 2021, Maycroft Lloyd Loom was contacted by the Orangery Restaurant at Burghley House, to look at the project of restoring 124 Lloyd Loom dining chairs. Interestingly, according to Matthew Fullerton of Burghley House, Maycroft had been recommended by another Lloyd Loom supplier! Prior to that they had asked a couple of local companies to look at refurbishing the chairs, but the outcome was disastrous!
The Restoration Process
The chairs had previously been painted in a brown stain and were in poor condition, with some light weave damage and the paper weave visible through the paint. The brass ferrules were also heavily tarnished.
The chairs were collected and taken to Maycroft Lloyd Loom’s Cleckheaton warehouse where they went through a thorough restoration process. After some deliberation and seeing an initial sample, the client chose Maycroft’s standard “Caramel” paint colour.
Apart from the cleaning and repainting, the brass leg ferrules were polished back to their original state. The end result being that the chairs look as good as the day that they were first delivered some 10 years ago!
“We were impressed by the professionalism of Maycroft Lloyd Loom and really pleased with the way the chairs now look in The Orangery at Burghley House”, commented Matt Fullerton.
