ABOUT LIBERTY OF LONDON
When its adventurous founder Arthur Lasenby Liberty laid plans for a London emporium laden with luxuries and fabrics from distant lands, his dream was to metaphorically dock a ship in the city streets. To this day, a voyage of discovery awaits on the good ship Liberty, with history hidden amongst six floors of cutting-edge design, unexpected edits and beautiful wares from the world's greatest craftspeople.
In 1875, Arthur borrowed £2,000 from his future father-in-law and took a building on Regent Street, London with just three dedicated staff and plenty of ambition. "I was determined not to follow existing fashions but to create new ones," he explained.
Liberty's collection of ornaments, fabric and objets d'art from around the world proved irresistible to a society intoxicated at the time by Japan and the East. Liberty effected social change in interior design and dress so much so that the Art Nouveau period in Italy is called 'Liberty Style'. Within eighteen months, Liberty repaid his loan.
"Liberty is the chosen resort of the artistic shopper," Oscar Wilde proclaimed.
Liberty London's historic building is now a heritage-listed London icon, and today, Liberty is famed for its directional design, cultural collaborations and inspiring curation.Its dedicated in-house design studio is still at the core of its mission, hand painting and creating its beautiful prints, and reworking finds from the 45,000 items in its rich archive.
