Swedish born Kristina “Kikki” Karlsson is a stationery addict, lover of fine wine and founder of kikki.K, an Australian household name and one of the country’s fastest-growing small businesses.
After growing up in Falkenberg, Sweden, Kristina followed her heart to Australia in 1995 and has since become a permanent resident. At the age of ten, Kristina would ride her bicycle around the snow-covered streets of her neighbourhood, selling and delivering Christmas books door-to-door. As a sign of things to come, she was named best saleswoman for her region. Since then, Kristina has turned a desire for stylish home office products into a booming design and retail business, with boutiques across Australia, New Zealand, Singapore and an online store that services the world.
