Poppykalas Brings Her Gardens Inside Your Home With New Rugs


Arguably a universal fact: flowers never fail to elicit joy. Danish floral designer and artist Thilde Maria Haukohl Kristensen can attest to this truth. As founder and creative director of her studio Poppykalas, she communes with flowers to create artful arrangements that end up in a vase, on a canvas, sealed within a table, and, as of late, on a rug. In her second collaboration with Swedish interior brand Layered, Kristensen has designed two rugs that capture the enchantment of a blooming garden. The collection is fittingly called Magical Garden.

Rug design is a relatively new skill for Kristensen. Up until her 2019 collection with Layered, which also featured floral motifs, she never imagined her floral creations could translate into textiles this way. “However, as we embarked on this journey together, it became increasingly more clear how seamlessly the floral creations could be captured in vibrant floor coverings,” the floral designer reflects.

The new collection is entirely handmade with a mixture of wool and Tencel, which gives the rugs their sheen. One piece, Magical Garden, features earthy tones of pale pink, peach, and orange while the other, Sleeping Flower, offers a nice contrast with its dominant blue hue to represent the vast skies. Kristensen was inspired by colors as they change in the garden with the rotation of the earth through the seasons referencing peonies, lilacs, sweet peas, and spring cherry blossoms to design the organic shapes found in the rugs.

“I am inspired by nature, always. The flowers are my muses,” Kristensen says. “Their vivid colors, delicate textures, and otherworldly presence always amazes me. The abundance of nature reminds me of my connection to something greater, and it is that essence that I sought to capture in the collection.”
