Goose Eye XL Icon in four new colors

Kasthall launches four new colours of the iconic rug - Goose Eye XL Icon. The Goose Eye pattern was originally designed by Kasthall’s former head designer, Gunilla Lagerhem Ullberg. The legacy of Lagerhem Ullberg is carried on by Kasthall Design Studio who, like Lagerhem Ullberg, has turned to nature for inspiration. This is reflected in the names of the new colors: Foggy Blue, Timber Green, Yellow Brick and Lichen Grey.


When Gunilla Lagerhem Ullberg was developing the next addition to the Häggå family pattern, she got her inspiration from ethnic fashion fabrics and costumes. With an enlarged goose eye our most popular pattern was updated with a new, modern and confident expression – Goose Eye XL Icon.


The woven rug in pure wool has, with its timeless pattern, become a classic in the Kasthall collection. The four new colors carry on the legacy of Lagerhem Ullberg and are inspired by the Scandinavian forests during morning walks in a hazy and dreamy summer landscape.


- It's no wonder that the Goose Eye pattern remains a favorite, which shows the greatness of Gunilla Lagerhem Ullberg's design. The new colors complement the existing color and are designed to give a contemporary yet classic expression that lasts over time, says Lena Jiseborn, Kasthall Design & Range Director.

nature inspires the new colors

When Lagerhem Ullberg designed the Goose Eye pattern, she was inspired by ethnic fabrics and traditional folk costumes. As the names implies, Kasthall's Design Studio has turned to nature for inspiration for the new colors Foggy blue, Timber green, Yellow brick and Lichen green. An additional change in the form the narrow-striped rug edge is also added, which is recognized from all woven Icon patterns. Just like the Goose Eye Icon, this timeless rug is perfect as either a stand-alone or wall-to-wall carpet.


- With the new colours, we get to witness how Gunilla's iconic design heritage continues, always with her original vision and design in mind, says Lena Jiseborn.
