Design Centre, Chelsea Harbour supports Wool Week 2015
In time for Wool Week 2015, a flock of ‘ewe-nique’ cartoon sheep were discovered grazing in the north dome of Design Centre, Chelsea Harbour.
Part of a wider trend for artists and illustrators turning their talents to interiors, the irresistible doodle-style flock in tones of red, pink and orange had been specially commissioned to show colourful wool fabrics from some of the most important names in the industry. Fun, witty and ingenious, visitors could delight in a playful take on counting sheep. The installation had been created by designer Karina Garrick whose imaginative style shows the beauty, quality and versatility of wool fabrics and carpets.
A Wool Week design trail had also been devised to show visitors where to find wool products in participating showrooms. From woollen fabrics to rugs and carpets, there was a vast array to choose from – everything from the contemporary classic to the cutting-edge cool.
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.
Design Centre, Chelsea Harbour is proud to be part of the international campaign.
