Wool House

In the world’s largest showcase of wool, the recently renovated West Wing of Somerset House will be transformed into a home made primarily from wool.  Seven individual rooms, from the bedroom to the study, created by leading designers, such as Kit Kemp and Donna Wilson, will be exhibited to show how the design community uses wool extensively in their work.  Three additional rooms will be dedicated to fashion displays, celebrating the importance of the fibre in today’s fashion industry.  Presented by The Campaign for Wool, an artisan in residence will also work on location throughout the period demonstrating the heritage of industry skills to the public.

With leading designers Ashley Hicks, Josephine Ryan, Anne Kyyro Quinn, Mary Fox Linton, Kit Kemp and Donna Wilson having each been invited to design a room set in the neo-classical splendour of Somerset House (in the space formerly occupied by the Inland Revenue!).

Below is the bedroom designed by Kit Kemp, interior designer, design director of Firmdale Hotels and author of A Living Space.

Carefree and colourful it features a wonderful combination of texture and pattern, including boiled wools embroidered with applique and embroidery to stunning effect. What you can’t make out from this picture is that the wallpaper is actually woollen clot.
