Learning of the history of the Mackintosh's work and how ahead of their time they were, made a deep impression on me. They were not well recognized in their own country and died poor. However, their designs which are well displayed impacted so many trends...More

Went on a trip with the Mackintosh group. Not disappointed. Lovely to see His and Maragret MacDonald's work. So different from the work at 78 Derngate, Northampton.

This is a stunning recreation of the first home where Mackintosh and his wife, also an artist whom he met at the Glasgow School of Art, first lived. It is a stunning place, spotlighting his unique and classic art nouveau and deco styles. This is...More

The house is a reconstruction of the original house wher he lived with his wife in the beginning of the XXth century. Mr Mackintosh deeply explored the vertical lines and the curves of the art nouveau movement. You can feel his geniality all over the...More

Must see for a Mackintosh fan. Nearly all of the furniture and fittings original - apparently only a couple of pieces of furniture are copies. Timeless style - what a man. Only small - it’s house sized!!!! But what a house - revolutionary in its...More

For art nouveau lovers. The house is renewed to original style. Interior is great. No photos are allowed. Beware as the shop actually closes before 5 PM.
