Many of you already know I'm mad about Arts & Crafts and Art Nouveau furniture. Liberty of London is famous for both, so I was thrilled to spend some time this week admiring some of my favourite designs.
The traditional sofa (pictured) is covered with William Morris of Morris & Co.'s original velvet. The book on the sofa contains samples of other Morris & Co. fabrics still manufactured today. Note the fireplace behind the sofa. Liberty retains most of its charming 19th-century architectural features.
This Arts & Crafts settee at Liberty of London on Regent Street features original William Morris fabric.
One is not supposed to take photographs inside Liberty, but I managed a few discreet ones. The photos above and below are different views of the same buffet cabinet. I like the elegant simplicity of the piece.

This oak dining table and chairs is an original Arts & Crafts Design for Liberty & Co. The book on the table contains a selection of Arts & Crafts fabrics to cover the chair seats.
