Liberty is one of London’s most famous department stores, founded by Arthur Lasenby Liberty in 1875. Its mock Tudor exterior belies its real age – it was only built in the 1920s. The father and son team of E S Hall used hand-made tiles and timbers taken from two old warships – HMS Hindustan and HMS Impregnable.
The old look is continued inside with plush carpets and wood-wall panelling, complementing the wide range of antiques and furnishings (seemingly gathered from Indiana Jones-style adventure trips abroad).
The shop is probably most famous for its oriental rugs and carpets, and long reams of coloured fabrics.
