Lucien-Léopold Lobin was the eldest son of the glass painter Julien-Léopold Lobin (1814–1864) in Tours. Lucien-Léopold became a partner in his father's flourishing company in 1863 and took over management after his father's death in 1864.

Lucien-Léopold Lobin headed the glass painting studio for the next 28 years until his death. His wife Louise-Anne Florence organized a salon on Rue des Ursulines in Tours, where the latest works from the studio were presented to dignitaries and citizens interested in art.

After the former Lobin employees, Julien Fournier (* 1835) and Armand Clément (1840–1894), had set up their own business in Tours, Lucien-Léopold Lobin faced serious competition. In the years before his death, the company's sales fell, although he still employed 70 people and offered an increasingly extensive catalog of stained glass work.

After Lucien-Léopold Lobin's death, his brother-in-law Joseph-Prosper Florence took over the management of the company, although Lucien-Léopold Lobin's sons Lucien and Etienne also worked in the studio. The company was renamed Lobin et Florence and continued until 1905.
