2021 sees the launch of ‘The Modern Collector’ Fabric and wallpaper Collection, celebrating Liberty’s historic love of craftmanship and design. Archival Liberty prints have been reinterpreted and reworked, appearing alongside contemporary new artworks created in our London design studio – for the next generation of iconic Liberty interiors. The Modern Collector sees a special focus on surface: lustre and matte effects are carefully balanced with line and tone, bold colour and hue, and beautiful, unexpected texture. The collection features manufacturing processes which have been carefully selected to bring out the character of each design. Mixing skilful design with artisanal printing and weaving techniques, the process informs the designs, and vice versa, in a perfect harmony of art and craft. The result is a collection that combines expert craftsmanship with a powerful depth of storytelling, reflecting the beauty and quality of heritage fabrics with a fresh and contemporary appeal. With his passion for exquisite textiles and objets d’art acquired on travels around the globe, our founder Arthur Lasen by Liberty was the original collector. He imagined the Liberty store as a great ship, filled with treasures and docked in the streets of London. Inspired by Arthur, the spirit of the collector lives on. The Modern Collector range is the next chapter of our story, bringing the vibrancy of the Liberty aesthetic indoors with three design heritage pillars as inspiration: Floribunda, Art Nouveau and The Tree of Life. Liberty has always appealed to the heart and spirit of the collector – those with a passion for heirloom pieces which transcend the generations. The Modern Collector is dedicated to those enthusiasts, both past and present.
