Celebrating the wonder of the natural world, Botanical Atlas showcases an eclectic array of flora and fauna, crafted with timeless elegance and hued in rich, sophisticated colour palettes. This season takes us on a global voyage and an exploration of magical and fantastical forms. Following Sir Arthur Liberty’s passion for discovery, the collection references his remarkable expeditions to Japan, China, Persia and India during the 1880s-1910s. From trailing Chinoiserie motifs, through to miniature Persian Garden illustrations, Indian Moghul painting and art from the Japanese Edo period, this intrinsically Liberty collection reinterprets traditional techniques with modern accents.
The cross-pollination of styles creates fascinating visual narratives. Rare specimens, sculptural leaves, magnificent flowers, and imaginary forests are juxtaposed with tranquil stripes and mesmerising geometrics.
Meticulously hand-painted in the Liberty Design Studio, in the heart of London, and expertly printed, using traditional and cutting-edge techniques in England and Italy. The wallpapers include delicately textured metallics to lustrous grass-cloths full of luxurious textures and depth of colour.
This striking pattern is a refreshingly modern Chinoiserie design. Commissioned artwork created by artists and experts in traditional Chinese silk painting techniques, using metallic silk paper, was reworked into a scenic panel by the Liberty Design Studio. Silk Tree features a joyous canopy of tree and Bamboo branches, decorated with birds, butterflies, Persian Silk Tree flowers, Chinese Physalis, Amaryllis, and Peonies.
This design is made up of three 330cm (129.9”) drops of wallpaper, supplied and printed as one continuous roll measuring 68.5cm (27”) width. The individual drops are indicated by a cut line for ease of hanging. Digitally printed on a non-woven gold iridescent base, which is strong and flexible, allowing the wall to be pasted rather than the substrate itself.
The design can be trimmed in height if required by removing any excess from the sky of each length. To achieve the best results and finish we recommend the use of a professional decorator.
