FABULOUS FLOORS Magazine Debuts The Wool Book in Conjunction with American Wool Week

September 12, 2012

NEW YORK, Sept. 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Most of the world now lives in cities but, we still need the countryside, farming, and a connection to what is natural. Having sustainability in mind, FABULOUS FLOORS Magazine launches The Wool Book, A Design and Resource Guide for Interiors, celebrating what makes wool a versatile, natural choice. With the foreword written by HRH The Prince of Wales, himself a sheep farmer, The Wool Book showcases how wool reduces carbon footprints, its natural, inherent properties and the plight of the sheep farmer. Readers can also be enlightened by interviews with Gensler’s Tom Vecchione and TV host, author and designer Mark Brunetz while enjoying photography of stunning interiors created with sumptuous wool.

Written by Bridgette Kelly, who serves as Interiors Director of the Campaign for Wool, and FABULOUS FLOORS Magazine’s publisher, Margo Locust, the 80-page Wool Book hopes to help raise awareness about the Campaign for Wool which is patroned by HRH The Prince of Wales. Its pages feature the history of sheep, following wool from shearing to the final product, and the ecological benefits of wool. The Wool Book is also illustrated with sophisticated photography featuring wool interior products from plush carpets and rugs to luxurious bedding and upholstery.

“Our goal is to educate the public – designers, architects, specifiers and consumers – about why they should choose wool,” states Margo Locust. “Wool is a lifestyle, like the Campaign for Wool says, Live Naturally. Choose Wool.”

The Wool Book will debut during the first American Wool Week in New York City, September 24-28, 2012. It will be available at Barnes & Noble and its complementary app – The Digital Edition – will be available in the App Store for iPhones and iPads and on Google Play for Android devices.
