Anthropologie, a brand eclectic in style and brave with trends, is well known for its exciting artist collaborations. However, this has to be one of the most exciting that the brand has ever seen. Experts in print, Liberty of London, have teamed up with Anthropologie to create a beautifully decorative home and furniture collection covered in delicate paisleys and fun florals.
Strawberry Theif Sofa and chair
This is a step in a really different direction for Liberty. We see the prints that we love and know so well on modern furniture shapes creating a really interesting juxtaposition of styles.

The collection showcases 18 prints designed by Liberty of London. All of the designs have a nod to oriental and ethnic styles but are translated in a vibrant, commercial way, something Liberty continues to do so well.

All of the designs have come from Liberty’s vast print archive. Some prints are more recent, designed by their in house team (Mabelle, 2007) and others hark back to 1883, designed by William Morris (Strawberry Thief). The mélange of contemporary and timeless classics make this collection a really exciting move on for both brands. The collection is both recognisable as a Liberty of London collection, stalwart of the British design, but also fresh and new for the Anthropologie customer.

“Liberty is familiar yet artistic, homely yet special — it’s the ultimate print brand and one I’ve admired for many years,” – Andrew Carnie, President of Home and Garden at Anthropologie
