Liberty of London have just launched an exclusive print collection of English-made kitchenware, textiles and gifts. The range features three distinctive floral pattern designs – Theodora, Betsy and Wiltshire – each with their own distinctive characteristics, colour and style.
The Theodora range is based on a new hand-painted watercolour design featuring a a wild meadow full of delicate blooming flowers. It’s fresh and light and an ideal way of bringing some colour into your kitchen or dining room. It’s got a lovely summery feel to it, so you could use it for outdoor dining during the warmer months.
If you’re a fan of Liberty prints, then you may well recognise Betsy, as this stylised floral design was originally developed in 1933. It’s a pattern that hasn’t dated and the purple colours have a contemporary vibe to them. The all over print works well on items like trays and tea towels, whereas the individual, slightly larger flowers, stand out well against the plain backgrounds of the china dining pieces, such as the teapot, mugs and cake stand.
Finally, the Wiltshire range features one of Liberty’s classic prints, in warm berry colours. The bold leaf and berry design has an uplifting feel to it and the chinaware complements the kitchen textiles. Colour-wise this collection is lively for use now, but could take you straight through to the winter, when the berry shades would add a bit of zing to a winter dining table.
All three of the new Flowers of Liberty collections feature a range of useful products, including dining essentials such as plates, bowls, cups, tablemats and mugs, as well as kitchen accessories, such as aprons, oven gloves, trays and tea towels.
