The Nesfield Collection This collection is inspired by British landscape architect William Nesfield. Nesfield was a major influence on garden design during the 19th century and introduced a balance between natural wildlife and symmetrical structure. Liberty Art Fabrics were inspired by his imaginative approach to creating serenity within a classic English garden and created this collection to celebrate botanical beauty and craftsm anship. Liberty’s signature style is at the heart of the Nesfield collection. Design detail and the vibrant color palettes are borrowed from Nesfields most famous English landscapes. Turquoise, greens and soft blues remind of Castle Howards cascading waterfall; Exotic reds and pinks represent the Palm House at Kew gardens, while the more subtle tones of fawn and moss remind us of spacious English parkland at Whitley Court. This collection showcases some of Liberty’s famous archive prints in conjunction with more contemporary designs.
The Jubilee Collection the Jubilee collection is quintessentially British with distinctive Liberty style. Designs are derived from prints found amongst the 40,000 in Liberty’s archive and are influenced heavily by nature, art and architecture. The most decorative designs are adapted from original scarf artworks, including the beautiful 19th century paisleys, redrawn in all over repeats. Also present in this collection are William Morris inspired designs such as oriental fruits and flowers of Mae Tree and re-drawings of his famous Strawberry Thief renamed as Strawberry Meadow
The Heritage Collection With designs spanning many influential eras of art and design, The Heritage Collection is historically indulgent using patterns and styles from the Art Deco, Art Nouveau and Arts and Crafts periods. Two of Liberty’s most famous iconic prints are re-coloured for this collection. The famous peacock feathers first printed in 1900 and Ianthe first printed in 1967.
