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
