Good news for interiors lovers! Liberty London recently opened its doors to The Interiors Emporium, bringing you the best of British arts and craftsmanship, and a few exclusives too…
The Interiors Emporium opens at Liberty London
Following the most significant makeover to date of the iconic London store, the long-awaited Interiors Emporium at Liberty London has recently opened – and it’s an absolute must-visit while you’re in town.
The new department on floor 3 brings the best of today’s interiors to the legendary central London store. The Emporium follows in the footsteps of founder Arthur Liberty who had a view to create trends rather than follow them, and with the variety of new brands and limited edition products on offer, there is no doubt that this has been fulfilled.
“I was determined not to follow existing fashion but to create new ones.” – Arthur Liberty
Liberty’s buyers have discovered and curated the best artisanal products with a focus on the design-led to cater to the artistic Liberty shopper. From the best of British craftsmanship to the ever-changing array of limited edition and exclusive products from new and exciting designers and artists, the Interiors Emporium is London’s new hub of home interiors inspiration and design.
We’ve selected our favourites from the new collection which will make wonderful updates to your home:
