Knothouse is a rug design studio & store directed by Bettina Gedda. All rugs are designed by Knothouse and
hand-knotted, by carefully selected weavers and artisans in Nepal, with 152,000 knots/m2 using only the finest quality, hand-mapped and spun Tibetan wool and pure Chinese silk.
"A timeless rug that can last a lifetime is a rug where a combination of good design, quality material and superior craftsmanship are given equal weight. By combining these elements, a rug is obtained that will last both visually and physically for many years".
Knothouse is a member of GoodWeave; a non-profit organisation supporting to stop child labor in global supply chains.

Knothouse studio & store is located in the centre of Copenhagen, in a part of what is called Prinsessegården -
the buildings between Adelgade and Dronningens Tværgade. The Princess Court was built in the years 1957-63 in red brick in nine floors by architects Kay Fisker and Svenn Eske Kristensen in collaboration with C.F. Møller Architects,
and is today one of the most treasured listed properties of recent times.
Knothouse is open Monday through Friday from 10am to 5pm. Please book an appointment for consultancy and interior guidance within the Knothouse collection and qualities. All our designs can be customized in size and colour.
Portrait of Bettina Gedda by Kristofer Johnsson
Founder and creative director of Knothouse, Bettina Gedda is a trained graphic designer from the Design School in Kolding and holds a Master's degree in Fine Arts from the Rhode Island School of Design, RISD in USA. Her strong interest in architecture and interior design, such as form, colour and materials, has been the starting point for what Bettina Gedda has dealt with both privately and professionally. When Bettina Gedda, after the many years abroad, settled in Copenhagen, arose the idea of starting a rug company therefore also almost by itself, and Knothouse became a reality.
"We are working towards a goal of changing people's perception of a rug. The rug should be prioritized as an essential part of the interior just like other furniture. We try to change the perception of the rug by visually displaying it unconventionally in our showroom. By hanging the carpet on the wall, it is experienced differently. It is important from a sustainable perspective to prioritize a rug that will last a lifetime, maybe even passed down as a classic piece of furniture or a work of art".
