Decorex 2015: Homes & Gardens on The Wool Trail

“My name is Giles Kime, I am the Executive Editor of Homes & Gardens magazine. This year at Decorex we have decided to collaborate with Campaign for Wool to create a map that highlights great examples of wool that people can follow around the show. They can see the possibilities of wool in interior design whether it is on upholstery, on flooring or on lighting.”

Bridgette Kelly, Interior Textiles Director, Campaign for Wool. “We’ve done the most wonderful woolly trail and we have some fantastic items around us which show the beauty and diversity of wool- A Naomi Paul lampshade, a beautifully embellished soft cushion by Pippa Caley and on the floor we have Rodger Oates lovely wool flooring”

Naomi Paul, lighting designer“ I have produced a collection that is made from 100% Arran and Shetland wool. It is an amazing fabric to work with because it has some super sustainable properties – it’s fire retardant and is great for acoustics”

Martin Stevens, Alternative Flooring Company“ We use wool in a dynamic way. We have collaborated with Ben Pentreath, Ashley Hicks and Margo Selby”

Stuart Scott, furniture designer“ We love wool, it makes up beautifully and upholsterers well”

Giles Kime“ When people arrive at the show they are met by this little herd of sheep that have been out here in all weather acting as ambassadors and I suspect they are very much looking forward to going back to Hampshire where they are from!”
