A BAROQUE TOWN HOUSE

The Tessin Palace is a baroque town house located in the old town in central Stockholm. Located next to the Royal Palace.

The mansion was constructed between 1694 and 1700 by architect Nicodemus Tessin the younger. The building was inherited by Tessin's son Carl Gustaf Tessin who had to sell it in 1750 for financial reasons. The palace later became property of the crown and has been used as residence for the Over Governor and later Governor of Stockholm County.

DESIGN BY ARCHITECT SOFIA HEDQVIST

This magnificent Kasthall rug designed by architect Sofia Hedqvist to grace Tessin Palace is a proof of an elaborate and artistically design. The intricate details, especially in the border of the rug, reminiscing a ceiling in a palace, was an extra challenge for the tufters at Kasthall. The result is a proof that the time and effort they put in was worth it.
