Wool-Covered Walls: Cozy or Claustrophobic?

Wool-Covered Walls: Cozy or Claustrophobic?

We've been fans of Maya Romanoff's distinctive wallcoverings for a while, but the Blanket design by David Rockwell for Maya Romanoff sparked a lively discussion around the dinner table last night. Would you get shocked after touching it? Would balloons stick to it? Would you have nightmares of Tim Gunn chasing after you with a hand steamer?

Inspired by the warmth and comfort of a favorite blanket, the wool-blend covering is embroidered with contrast stitching reminiscent of men's suiting. We could imagine using it on a feature wall in a bedroom or to cozy up a small study. We also could see wool replacing the ubiquitous chalkboard wall in a child's room. Imagine the fun you would have creating felt scenes and discovering what sticks to it!

Does the idea of wool-covered walls make you feel homey or hemmed in?
