Today, I had to be in London, and, as I know that many of my readers just LOVE Liberty, and are collecting Liberty fabrics, I thought you might want to know what the store looks like..
Inside the main entrance, you immediately see the main atrium with it's many floors and magnificent wooden panelling;
Beams and pillars are repeated throughout the store..
Ornamental carved doorway,
leading to impressive stairways to the upper floors;
The fabric department is bordering on the rug department and rugs were displayed over the banisters;
There was a wall of Kaffe fabrics (with separate part for free spirit and amy butler);
And two entire walls like these with Liberty Tana Lawn fabric.. The fabric falls like butter through your fingers and is abosolutely divine... 136 cm wide and £19.95 per metre... (that's $29 a metre...) (in Aus $ 35 - thanks Suz!) ( a metre is a yd plus 3").
some of the tana lawn fabrics...
A look through to one of the other atria;
and for some unexplicable reason, a zebra in one of the corridors!
One last look...
and homewards I went.. (no, I didn't buy anything... it is ALL so tempting but also all very pricey....)
I hope you enjoyed seeing the home of that fabulous fabric we are all coveting!
ps.. apologies for the bad quality of the photos... I wasn't sure about taking photographs but as there was no sign that forbade photography I thought it was ok. Still, before anybody could tell me to the contrary, I snapped away.. so you won't see my usual quality but at least you see the inside of Liberty's!!
