Two Kasthall classics now in new colors

Kasthall is delighted to present updated versions of two classic rugs Gry and Esther in the color palette of its 2018 collection, Legacy of Tomorrow. Mild pastels and neutral tones are blended with colorful accents and elements of copper and bronze. Both rugs are created by Kasthall’s award-winning designer Gunilla Lagerhem Ullberg, who is celebrating her 28th year at Kasthall. Furthering its design legacy, the Kasthall Design Studio has updated these two iconic rugs in new color schemes. 


Gry, a hand-tufted bouclé rug in wool and linen, was launched in 2011. The unique irregular surface, crafted using cut and loop pile, was developed by Kasthall’s product manager Mathias Andersson after months of hand-tufting experimentation. The result is a soft, shimmering and robust surface with a fresh, vibrant expression, which inspired designer Gunilla Lagerhem Ullberg. The rug is named Gry after Andersson’s daughter.

Originally launched in a neutral color scale, Gry is now also available in two soft pastel colors that immediately capture the eye: a mint-blue Pale Turquoise and a muffled pink Rose Mist., with elements of linen adding extra luster. 


The classic hand-woven bouclé rug Esther, designed by Gunilla Lagerhem Ullberg in 2000, is now being launched in four new colors: three powdery greige nuances with elements of copper and bronze, and a warm, rich tangerine tone. Esther is woven in a curly wool and linen yarn developed and manufactured at Kasthall’s factory, specially produced for each individual rug.
