Liberty Style


(Stile Liberty, English Art Nouveau)

Liberty & Co. first catered for an eclectic mixture of popular styles, but then went on to develop a fundamentally different style closely linked to the aesthetic movement of the 1890s called Art Nouveau (the ’new art’). The company became synonymous with this new style to the extent that in Italy, Art Nouveau became known as Stile Liberty after the London shop.
