Mackintosh Ingram: Not Only Chairs

Between the design creations of Charles Rennie mackintosh the mackintosh ingram probably are the most famous and that ones with the most interesting story: the mackintosh ingram were projected and designed by the Scottish designer and architect within a bigger project. This project included the entire renovation of a tea room of Catherine Cranston in Ingram Street. Catherine Cranston owned the most beautiful tea rooms in Glasgow and the works of Charles Rennie Mackintosh flowed in the beautiful and unique White Dining Room.

Charles Rennie Mackintosh (1868 - 1928) is most well known as an artist and architect. Perhaps they know him through his masterpiece, the Glasgow School of Art (GSA), or his distinct floral decorative motifs that most often come to mind when there’s talk of ‘Mackintosh style’. But this well-loved designer had humble beginnings. Mackintosh was born in Glasgow into a working-class family on 7 June 1868. He was the fourth of 11 children and his father was a policeman. He began his career in 1884, aged 16, by serving an apprenticeship to local architect John Hutchinson.

He attended evening classes at the GSA from 1883 until 1894. During his time at the practice he met his future wife, fellow student Margaret Macdonald, with whom he would work closely together on many of his interior designs. They married in 1900.

With his training or pupillage complete, he moved on to the office of Honeyman & Keppie in 1889 as a draftsman. He became a partner in the practice in 1901. Despite the success in Glasgow, he and Margaret left the city and the firm in 1913 to go to Suffolk. The last years of his life outside Glasgow were characterised by poor health and the lack of commissions.

And Charles Rennie Mackintosh projected the Ingram Mackintosh like the focal point of the White Dining Room, reconciling in them the influence of Art Noveau (this movement got a major influence in the design and architectonic production of Mackintosh). The influence of Art Noveau was reworked by the Scottish designer and flowed in the “Glasgow Movement”: this movement had a big influence in the next design production, in Europe and in the rest of the world.

Starting with the entrance of the Withe Dining Room, the place where every guest should parade before entering in the room, in front of a wooden panel decorated with inlaid glasses, where originated the lights from the White Dining Room, making particular imagine games. With these premise, it was clear that the show for the guests was unique and unforgettable.

With the ingram mackintosh Charles Rennie Mackintosh not only made beautiful and comfortable chairs for a tea room, but also made some objects that were part of the furniture: for the With Dining Room in Glasgow Mackintosh made the ingram chair with two different heights, using always the same style. This two kind of chair got two different role: the taller model was designed for the center of the room, and the lower model for the rest of the room, with a unique and particular result.

And choosing between the higher and the lower model you can always find the mackintosh chair adapt to your taste and furniture.
