Liberty was founded on 1875 by Arthur Lasenby after receiving a loan from his future father-in-law. He took on a building in Regent Street, London with just three dedicated staff and plenty of ambition.
Liberty's collection of ornaments, fabric and objets d'art from around the world proved irresistible to a society intoxicated at the time by Japan and the East and Liberty effected social change in interior design and dress, so much so that the Art Nouveau period in Italy is called 'Liberty Style'. Within eighteen months the loan was repaid.
