You all know I love Anthropologie: I love the quirky collections of kitchenware (I have far too many Anthro mugs), and the ranges of clothes that will almost guarantee you’ve got something great quality and original in your wardrobe. As far as I know, apart from the lovely kitchen things, bed linen, and towels, etc, Anthro has never really ventured into the realms of furniture, but oh, they’ve done it now and it is spectacular, with the introduction of their brand new partnership with none other than Liberty: they of the fabulous floral print and the beautiful, must-visit mock-Tudor store on Great Marlborough Street (built from the wreckage of HMS Hindustan and HMS Impregnable – I don’t know why I retain useless information – I just do). Anyhoo, Liberty’s iconic prints have now found a new home in this wonderful collaboration with Anthropologie. And oh, it’s breathtaking. Dive in to Liberty for Anthropologie:
I know, I know, it’s two and a half grand, but one day, one of us could win the lottery and buy one (or two?) for everyone! So I’m just bookmarking it, for when the time comes (you’re welcome). I’m actually imagining this in my enormous post-lottery bedroom. The gorgeous print is actually an exclusive mixture of two classic Liberty prints: smooshing Paradise Garden and Abstract Meadow together to create a beautiful new design. Le sigh…
Moving swiftly on to the slightly lower priced end of the furniture spectrum, how fabulous is this Feather Bloom print? And it’s in cotton velvet too. Be still my beating heart. If you were looking for, say, a gorgeous heirloom centrepiece to your otherwise neutral room, this could well be it (but the sofa’s pretty fab too).
And it’s not just furniture that’s been given the Liberty treatment. Oh, no… the bedlinen is to die for as well:
Strawberry Thief is a classic Liberty print, and recreated in velvet, it makes the perfect sumptuous bed covering for this autumn and winter. I’m in love.
Moving away from the boudoir, there are plenty of affordable and beautiful items for the home in the range too, from cushions to kitchenware, candles and even a gorgeous cheeseboard…
So even if we can’t afford that sofa just yet, there are still loads of other ways to bring a little Liberty loveliness into our homes. Check out the whole Liberty for Anthropologie range here. What’s your favourite piece?
