Its called liberty style bound English merchant, Arthur Lasenby liberty (Arthur Lasenby Liberty (1843-1917), a seller of art objects of Japan and China. The clean lines of Oriental art, the subtle nuances of color, exquisite stylization of natural forms differed from the eclectic Victorian style. Was buried on the battlefields of the First World war, the liberty-style happily revived, mainly thanks to the Milan branch of the trading house "liberty".

In pure form these interiors can be found very rarely. For design lamps in the style of art nouveaux or liberty will require not only expensive materials, but and fine artistic taste. Often can be found elements of art Nouveau and liberty in the design of buildings in the art deco or modern classical (which art Nouveau is often confused, and sometimes combine).
The fundamental and characteristic of the art Nouveau style is the form of details. We can talk about it, as about the figure of a beautiful woman: soft and smooth shapes, rounded shapes, graceful curves. The movement of the eye from subject to subject is reminiscent of a graceful dance or endless weaving of the winding branches, creating a whimsical shape.

- The ceiling is made of an unusual glass, which seemed frozen strings of water and twinkling icicles.
- Typical glass insert, made in the technique of stained glass. Since this technique is complex and expensive, often using imitation. If you have the desire to have something truly valuable, get a lamp with a shade of stained glass.

Designers should perform the most difficult task: to give the massive interior ease. For visual perception of objects fragile, the artists have resorted to natural reasons – reproduce in the painting or the stained line, similar to plants. Most often you can see tender orchids, lilies grace and delicacy of cyclamen. In any pattern you notice those or other elements of the plant world.
