Margaret Macdonald Mackintosh, c. 1905. Courtesy of the Charles Rennie Macintosh Society. She is seated in front of a white painted desk designed by Mackintosh in 1900, which is enriched with silvered copper panels that were probably worked by Macdonald herself.
The above washstand gives you a pretty good idea of the style of work that this couple produced. Isn't it gorgeous? One of the great things about Mackintosh and Macdonald was that they created so many different types of work, and nowhere can you see this better than in their designs for buildings and interiors. These designs incorporated not only architecture, but the art and furniture that were to go into the buildings as well. This month, I want to focus on my three favorite, and what I think of as the most significant, Mackintosh and Macdonald works: the Glasgow School of Art (Week 2), Hill House (Week 3) and the Willow Tea Rooms (Week 4).
