Wool House opens at Somerset House

This week, the world’s biggest ever celebration of Wool opened in London’s historic Somerset House. ‘Wool House‘ is a impressive twelve day showcase of interiors, crafts and fashion curated by designer Arabella McNie.

Donna Wilson’s brief for this exhibition was to create a fantastical nursery that would feed a child’s imagination. Her wonderland scheme of trees and sky, clouds and raindrops comes alive with the three dimensional leaves on the walls. Take a look below at some of our favorite bits from the exhibition.


Pictured above are the Eadie armchair and Ernest pouffe by Donna Wilson for SCP that we donated along with a selection of Nos Da and Bora Da cushions.

Josephine Ryan created her ‘Natural Room’ using more naturally coloured and coarser textured wools instead of her trademark linens. Inspired by her Celtic roots, she has used old Arran jumpers for her upholstery and a mix of knit and weave textures to create a very layered interior.


Hung in the ‘Classic Drawing Room’ by Fox Linton Associates, are these beautifully crafted Winged pendants by Kate Ramsay.

Wool House runs until the 24th of March 2013.
