Here at the Museum of Domestic Design and Architecture we're pleased to have contributed in a small way to a new book about the iconic shop, Liberty Style, written by Martin Wood.
The core collection of the Museum of Domestic Design and Architecture (MoDA) is that of the Silver Studio, an independent design studio who supplied designs for wallpapers and textiles to a large number of clients from the late 1800s to the mid 1960s. Liberty was one of the Silver Studio's best customers throughout this whole period, and hence the histories of the two firms are closely related.
This latest book provides a fantastic overview of Liberty, tracing the story of this influential shop, with many excellent illustrations. It would be a great Christmas present for anyone interested in the histories of design, textiles, interiors, fashion or shopping - a real treat!
