Wool Week at Design Centre Chelsea Harbour
12th of October 2013 - 20th of October 2013
Design Centre Chelsea Harbour
The Campaign for Wool was initiated by HRH The Prince of Wales in 2010 to promote better understanding and use of natural and sustainable benefits of real wool. It has united the international community of wool growers, manufacturers, retailers and wool lovers. For the fourth year, Design Centre, Chelsea Harbour is proud to be part of the international campaign.
An eye-catching pop-up has been specially commissioned to showcase directional wool fabrics and carpets from some of the most important names in the industry. Fun, witty and ingenious, visitors can delight in a playful take on a ‘baa baa’ shop and a ‘chic sheep’ design studio.
The installation has been created by designer Karina Garrick whose wit and imagination shows the evolution of wool from fleece to interiors. The much-loved Design Centre sheep wait in line to be sheared at the ‘baa baa’ shop while in the design studio tempting wool products encourage passers-by to give fleece a chance. Zingy colours and unusual textures throughout are reflective of how wool offers incredible choice, not necessarily in a traditional way.
A Wool Week design trail has been devised to show visitors where to find wool products in participating showrooms. From woollen fabrics to rugs and carpets, there is a vast array to choose from – everything from the contemporary classic to the cutting-edge cool.
Join the Campaign for Wool in celebrating the beauty, practicality and endless versatility of real wool within interiors by participating in this new initiative. The aim is to build a virtual ONEWOOL gallery of the very best items in the wool interiors industry today.
