Liberty opened in 1875 selling ornaments, fabric and objets d'art from Japan and the East. As the business grew, neighbouring properties were bought and added. In 1885, 142-4 Regent Street was acquired to meet the ever-increasing demand for carpets and furniture. The store became the most fashionable place to shop in London and iconic Liberty fabrics were used for both clothing and furnishings. Today Liberty is the leading destination store in London, a wonderful emporium where the latest fashions sit alongside design classics. The result is a highly desirable collection of fashion and interiors which mixes the eclecticism and exoticism of Liberty s Art Nouveau heritage with exquisite craftsmanship and high innovation.
