The Wool Lab InteriorsThe Wool Lab Interiors is a permanent laboratory of wool-related macro themes in the interior textiles sector. It is a seasonal guide to the best wool fabrics and yarns in the world.

A guide to interior textiles

Following the global success of the apparel editions of The Wool Lab - launched in 2011 - The Woolmark Company extended this permanent laboratory of wool-related macro themes into the interior textiles sector and launched The Wool Lab Interiors.

The main areas of production of wool products in the interiors sector are: bedding and bed linen, floor covering and carpets, interior textiles such as curtains, accessories such as cushions, and insulating materials.

Similar in format to the apparel editions of this guide, The Wool Lab Interiors is a guide to the best wool textiles and to the most interesting and innovative applications of wool, in this case in the furnishing and interior textile sectors. The guide is a result of international research carried out by The Woolmark Company to select the newest wool fabrics from the world’s best companies.

Doubling as both an inspirational theme book and a practical work tool, The Wool Lab Interiors is intended for designers, architects, interior decorators, and specialised professionals who are looking to buy wool fabrics. You can select materials based on the guide and get in touch with the relevant suppliers through The Woolmark Company. This service is provided free of charge to promote the appreciation and use of wool in interior design.

The Wool Lab Interiors identifies five inspirational themes for this edition:

Themes

Scandinavian

Scandinavian

Scandinavian is about Nordic atmospheres and colours, and brings back to the future those dusty colours and clean lines, representing the basics of the Nordic design masterpieces of the 1950s and 60s. 

798

798

798 is a theme that recalls the district-art lab with the same name in Beijing, dedicated both to experimental culture and to the encounter between art, culture, and technology. 

Metropolis

Metropolis

Metropolis conveys the modern need for linearity mixed with technology, and develops through combinations of wool and leather, combed fabrics and draperies, grey shades and other natural colours to produce clean lines with high quality and elegant materials. 

Tweed Heritage

Tweed Heritage

Tweed Heritage represents a well-established trend of the contemporary culture, restoring the allure of typical Scottish tweeds in city life and acting at the same time as a vehicle for glamour and tradition. 

Pure

Pure

Pure is the theme that best summarises aspirations about a socially and ecologically compatible future through the representation of minimal atmospheres, natural hues, reassuring ambiances, plain forms.
