13 Apr Why we love Little Greene for our Lloyd Loom Furniture
At Lloyd Loom Manufacturing we find the best suppliers for our products and in Little Greene we have found a gem.
Little Greene is an independent, British paint manufacturer, committed to the socially and environmentally responsible production of high quality paints. Dating back to 1773, the Little Greene Dye Works on the outskirts of Manchester is one of England’s most historical sites for the making of paints and dye solutions.
We particularly like the paints’ depth of colour – the deep undertones that subtly change in different lights, showing real character and definition: their complex pigmentation gives an interesting character to the colour. These formulations, and reassuringly high pigment levels give Little Greene’s paints an unequalled depth of colour and a true point of difference.
Little Greene have partnered with English Heritage to formulate paint collections are the result of combined research to discover the true historical colours used over several key periods in historic decoration from early Georgian right up to the 1970s and are key to the period from which they hail. The Colours Of England collection is a range of 128 classic and contemporary colours and includes true historic shades authenticated by English Heritage.
At Little Greene they have always been, committed to the environment and in 2004 were one of the first UK paint manufacturers to achieve the European environmental standard BS EN ISO 14001.
At Lloyd Loom we extensively use the waterbased paints which carry the industry’s lowest eco-rating, with VOC content virtually zero. This means you don’t need to worry about solvent contributions to the atmosphere or the smell; they are virtually odourless.
Lloyd Loom and Little green share a commitment to British manufacturing and actively source from suppliers who can match our commitment to local industries.
