Southwark Cathedral to host The Campaign for Wool’s Interiors Collection
From 5th - 12th October 2014 Southwark Cathedral is hosting The Campaign for Wool’s Interiors Collection for a celebration of wool interiors.
The courtyard setting of London’s iconic Southwark Cathedral will be home for one week and a day to this year’s most beautiful wool moment. As part of the fifth anniversary of the Campaign for Wool, a stunning collection of over fifty beautiful wool items for interiors and lifestyle has been curated from the textile industry and retail brands.
The WOOL COLLECTION exhibition will showcase innovative and diverse design highlighting the natural beauty and practical functionality of real wool. Over fifty curated interior items will be showcased with a selection from the high-street, designer, bespoke and commercial sectors and will include fabrics, flooring, furnishings and lifestyle items.
Names such as Jonathan Adler, Christopher Farr, Roger Oates, Designers Guild, Camira Fabrics, Edward Fields by Tai Ping, Alternative Flooring, Brintons, Melin Tregwynt, Solva Woollen Mill, Bute Fabrics, Naomi Paul, Tracy Kendall and Pentreath and Hall with Fine Cell Work are just some of those selected. High Street/on-line names Heals, John Lewis, Marks and Spencer, The Conran Shop, Toast, SCP and sofa.com are a few of the retailers partnering on WOOL COLLECTION during Wool Week.
A stunning bespoke tapestry from the work ‘Tirra Lirra’ by the British abstract artist Gillian Ayres - currently in the Royal Academy - will be woven by Weftfaced, the UK’s newest tapestry workshop. Inspirational themes, textures and wool usage from small mills, young designers and major names will be explored in this a highly styled capsule follow-on from the critically acclaimed Wool House that showcased at Somerset House in 2013.
All items on display are available for purchase during Wool Week.
