An iconic department store established in 1875 on Regent’s St, London, by Arthur Lasenby Liberty. It remains true to its original ethos of celebrating the best of craftsmanship from the Occident to the Orient and beyond, in fashion and home furnishings. Notably famous for popularising William Morristextile and print designs, based on the shapes and forms of the natural world, and influenced by  Arthur Lasenby Liberty’s love of the more geometric Islamic and flowing ottoman forms of decoration.

There are similarities with the detail in Italian frescos –  the ground of  Fra Angelico’s Annunciation
