What do you get when you cross one of the dreamiest, design-led department stores in the world with a dozen of the country’s most exciting independent female makers of the moment? A collection of exquisite, maximalist floral-inspired and Liberty Print homeware, peppered with future heirlooms designed to treasure.
Created under the direction of Liberty’s Interiors Buyer Bryony Sheridan, the new Floribunda collection – which launched this week – pays homage to Liberty’s famous opulent interiors and uses prints from their vast archives, as well as reinterpretations of their floral classics.

Think cushions with gingham frills and market baskets with bows by edit58; print footstools with frill skirt trims by Ceraudo; scalloped textiles by Coco and Wolf; and embroidered, linen-lined quilts by Once Milano. Delicately handpainted glassware by Petra Palumbo; pretty embroidered linens by Cressida Jamieson; framed paper-cut artwork by Isla Simpson and traditional patchwork quilts by Projektityyny.
Then there are wonderful handmade ceramics by Rachael Cocker and Zsuzsanna Nyul; a new series of Matilda Goad’s signature scalloped tablelamps and large floral-inspired Frances Costello lampshades.
“Using Liberty Print as the starting point for our own limited-edition interiors capsule collection has been an exciting opportunity for interpretation and reinvention of some of the most well-loved prints,” says Bryony. “It has been thrilling to see how each of the collaborators has worked with the prints, imagining designs from motifs we know so well.

“Floribunda is a celebration of maximalist interiors and florals – our print has long set the standard for bold and artistic design; this collection is synonymous with the Liberty tone-of-voice across varied price points. “Life shouldn’t be bland – it should be full and spirited. We hope that this collection inspires that.”
Each limited-edition piece is exclusive to Liberty – available both online and in-store – and the hope is that Floribunda will be an ongoing and ever-changing collection.
