Glimmer is a hand tufted rug with a tight, short pile of wool and a specially dyed linen yarn that gives the rug its shimmering pattern. The irregular shape of the rug with no right angles challenges the eye and creates tension – what seems to be a straight edge is really a convex line. The inspiration comes from make up and eye shadow, and like an eye-shadow palette, the glimmering surface changes depending on the light and how the yarn lies, which brings the rug to life when it is used. Glimmer comes in three elegant colour combinations to suit a range of different settings.



Petra Lundblad Friden

Petra worked at Kasthall between 2009 and  2014 – straight from London’s world of fashion and a degree from St. Martins. She brought with her not only a wicked sense of humour but a new design expression for Kasthall. Petra’s patterns picks up influences from the world of fashion, often adding a deliberate irregularity that catches the eye.

“I’ve probably been quite ruthless when it comes to production limitations, simply because I haven’t known any.”

A great example of this is Petra’s hand tufted rug Glimmer inspired by shimmering eye shadow. Petra’s design for Kasthall has already received several awards – most notably the Red Dot Award for the 100% recycled wall-to-wall carpet Tom
