Lloyd Loom’s been around since the early 20th century, and is made by wrapping paper around a steel wire. It won’t bend out of shape or creak when you sit down, and is completely smooth, so it won’t snag on clothes. In this chair, it’s joined by pine legs – a strong softwood with a straight grain that’s ideal for painting.
Not every piece of furniture and every colour of paint needs the same process – a ‘one finish suits all’ approach won’t ever give you the best result possible. That’s why we vary the number of coats and use both hand-painted and spray-painted techniques depending on what that shade needs.
Comfort and proportions
This is a firm bar stool, though Lloyd Loom has a little more give in it than timber if comfort is on your priority list. It also has a curved seat, so it’ll fit around your legs rather than you feeling as if you’re perched on top. And the backrest is high enough to be supportive, but won’t stand out too far above your countertop.
Montague’s footrest is made from stainless steel so it’ll stand up to scuffs. And, wherever there’s a join in the Lloyd Loom (such as where the legs meet the seat and around the backrest), we’ve finished it with a neat plait. It’s a traditional detail, but one that’s balanced by the bar stool’s pared-back shape.
Delivered to you, safe and sound
Free for all orders over £50 (or €100 in Ireland).
An estimated delivery date is indicated above, which we’ll confirm at checkout. We'll then be in touch prior to delivery to arrange a specific time.
If your order is being delivered to the UK mainland and Ireland via our white glove service, we’ll unbox your items, position them in your chosen room, assemble anything that’s required and remove and recycle the packaging.
We believe that returns should be easy, which is why we approach them with a ‘no quibble’ mindset. And, you’ll also have 28 days to do so – just in case you need time to mull things over.
When it comes to designs upholstered in a made-to-order fabric or painted in a bespoke colour, there’s also a 20% returns/cancellation fee. We’d love to not have to charge a penny for this, but as they’re made just for you, we can’t always guarantee that we’ll be able to sell them again.
If you’ve bought something from us outside the UK or Ireland, just get in touch with the store you bought it from – or with our international team if you bought it through them – and they’ll let you know how you can return or exchange it.
And talk to our international team on +44 (0)1793 427 427 or at email@example.com.

Taking care of Montague
Lloyd Loom really won’t ask a lot of you, just a regular dust down with a soft bristle brush to remove any crumbs is all it needs. For anything more stubborn, you can also use a soft, damp sponge – Lloyd Loom is perfectly happy getting a little wet, just avoid any harsh or abrasive cleaners.
Looking after Neptune designs is easy – they won’t ask you for a lot. But, whether you’d like advice on everyday cleaning or seasonal and yearly care, you’ll find all our tips, suggestions and recommendations in our care guides.
Just So you know
The colours you see here are as close to the real thing as we can get them, but it’s always a good idea to try a sample first if you’re looking to get the colour spot on.
