Seattle, Washington, 2008. The Graypants design studio was founded by architects Jonathan Junker and Seth Grizzle (and joined later by close friend, Jon Gentry) as a way to get back to what they'd originally loved about architecture: design, drawing and making things by hand.
House Doctor is a family-run interior design business with its own consulting room in Denmark and dealers around the world.
The company is run by three playful siblings – Rikke Juhl Jensen, Gitte Juhl Capel, and Klaus Juhl Pedersen. They all share a creative gene and a belief in the fact that beautiful interiors enhance your passion for life.
The family trio ran a successful industrial design business for a few years. But ideas for new products quickly started to emerge – and in 2001 House Doctor was born.
Over time, new additions have arrived in the House Doctor family – people with a passion for developing the brand. At our head office in Ikast in Mid-Jutland, 50 dedicated house doctors work on tracking current trends and designing new, luxurious interior accessories for the contemporary home and other design emergencies.
