Arriving at London, first thing : visiting Liberty shop. There is no way that I would not go there, even with a flu, even with fever! Somewhat crazy when I think of it! Anyway, here I am in front of my favorite department store, the most stunning and charming place!
|Arriving at Liberty's|
A short history about this London shop in Regent street : It was founded in 1875 by Arthur Lasenby Liberty, a pioneer spirit.
It was selling mainly art items and fabrics from Japan and East. It became quickly the most fashionable place to shop in London, and the Liberty fabrics well-known all-over the world.
Personnaly I am crazy about this architecture. The inside decoration is called Arts & Crafts and Art Nouveau, and is so beautiful and interesting! This luxury shop was growing and was added in 1920 the extraordinary Tudor Building, built with timbers of two ships.
When you walk inside, you have a kind of feeling like being at home, going from a small wooden room to another. Some rooms even still have fire places! Some lifts are antique, in wooden curved oak.
Of course, for me, the first place to visit inside there is the fabric floor (third?).. and the quilting corner. I leave you to discover it with me :

I hope I made you enjoy this visit at Liberty's with me! The visit will go on soon, showing Liberty fabrics (Second part).
