Riley Blake Designs - Liberty of London Fabrics - The Summer House Collection
Arthur Lasenby Liberty first opened the Liberty store on Regent Street in London on May 15, 1875, selling imported ornaments, textiles and artefacts from the East. Liberty’s wish was to influence the public’s taste by giving them the opportunity to buy beautiful and otherwise unattainable things.
Due the success of the imported fabrics, Liberty set up an in-house design studio to produce its own eclectic range of designs. Now Liberty Fabrics has been designing and printing fabrics for over 140 years. Internationally recognised as a leader in print design and textile innovation, the in-house design team continues to create new and original prints each season.
Based in Soho, London, the Liberty Design Studio creates a new collection of up to 40 original designs each season. Inspired by Art, Architecture, History, Music, Flora, Fauna. Each collection is themed and tells a unique story.
The Liberty Design Studio is committed to using traditional methods of design. Each design is created by hand using a variation of techniques: paint, pencil, ink as well as specialist computer textile packages.
Liberty Fabrics are renowned for their fine detail, intricate pattern and original Liberty colour palettes.
Liberty’s iconic floral and paisleys, geometrics and colourful conversationals are translated onto the finest textiles and innovative cloths.
The archive has over 50,000 designs dating back to early 18th century. Many of Liberty’s fabrics were traditionally printed using wood blocks
The latest collection from the Liberty Fabrics design studio drew inspiration from the interiors of 17th and 19th century orangeries. The Summer House quilting collection illustrates the grand architecture of these structures – paying homage to the details of decorative tiled flooring, iron works and trellises. Archival artworks are translated into conversational prints inspired by citrus fruits, plants and vines weaving among detailed ironwork, while floral geometric designs evoke the forms of intricate tiles.
100% Cotton 43"/44" wide.
