Mackintosh's last real commission, in 1916, was Derngate, a remodel of a Georgian house in the center of Northampton. Some of the finished interiors were stunning, and even today 100 years later look strikingly modern. He had lost none of his creativity, and with these interiors he pre-empted the coming Art Deco style by several years. Being both a tribute to & inspired by Mackintoshs' designs at Derngate, we have produced some new cabinet designs. These draw on the furniture, colouring & patterns used in various places in Derngate. This is about adding Mackintosh style to enjoy every day. This furniture is all bespoke, we don't give out sizes until we've agreed a spec. with a customer.
The idea for the furniture evolved from the living room in Derngate, with it's black painted walls & furniture. But is was the wall patterns that formed the basis for the decoration of these cabinets. The Cubist style patterns are done in colours that form a striking contrast to the black furniture. The sideboard can be supplied as a 2 door or 4 door version, with either white or black worktop. The Cubist patterns could also be added to the side of the cabinets as well, if you want. The cabinet is quite a straight forward design, with a matching stepped plinth. You can choose a small top upstand, no upstand, or an upstand with a small step either end (to echo the plinth detail) -these options are shown on the 4 door versions. Made to order.
