9781851496891: Liberty's Furniture 1875 -1915: The Birth of Modern Interior Design

Liberty's Furniture 1875-1915 includes beautiful photography which showcases a wide selection of Liberty Furniture

This book gives particular attention to the work of one of Britain's foremost Arts and Crafts furniture designers, Leonard Wyburd

Liberty's Furniture 1875 -1915 provides the clearest and most comprehensive account of early Liberty furniture to date. A definitive work of reference, the volume outlines the company's unique contribution to the British Arts and Crafts style.Throughout the history of the Arts and Crafts Movement, Liberty & Co. always enjoyed a prominent position. With imaginative design, high-quality construction, and state-of-the-art marketing, the company was responsible for some of the most beautiful and enduring pieces of furniture from that period.

Drawing on archive material and reviews in contemporary journals and magazines, Liberty's Furniture 1875-1915 examines the key features and different styles of Liberty's furniture design, as it evolved through a variety of genres including Oriental, Arts and Crafts and 'modern country cottage'. Illustrations from the Liberty catalogues enable readers to see how both the products and promotional styles of the company developed, whilst the many color photographs show a wide selection of items - from the Athelstan suite and Culloden sideboard to the Thebes stools and Witlaf chairs. Giving particular attention to the work of Leonard Wyburd, the man responsible for some of the most important elements of the Liberty style, this volume represents an invaluable evidence base for collectors and auction houses alike.

Contents: The Long Tradition: A Taste for the Exotic; The House Beautiful; Liberty: The Enchanted Cave; Furniture: 1883 - 1893; The Growth of an Influence; The End of an Era; The Later Years; Collecting Liberty Furniture; Brief Chronology; Liberty & Co. Catalogues at the National Art Library; Mottoes used on Furniture by Liberty & Co.
