CR Mackintosh - Derngate style cabinets


Charles Rennie CR Mackintosh painted black Derngate style sideboard & wall mirror

The idea for the furniture evolved from the living room in Derngate, with it's black painted walls & furniture. But is was the room/stairs screen especially that provided the detailing for these cabinet designs. The screen squares were used for the doors in the same black finish. The wall mirror follows the shape of the fire surround, with it's stepped shapes (this looks like a piece of Paul Frankl's 'Skyscraper' furniture from c. 1930!). The cabinet is quite a straight forward design, with a matching stepped plinth. The worktop could be a white stone, or a dramatic black stone, or painted to match the cabinet, your choice.

What really makes this furniture look superb is adding stained glass panels to some of the door panels. The glass designs are based on those used by Mackintosh, and are very 'Jazzy Deco' in style. The asymetric placing of the stained glass panels matches the style of the screen. We've shown a selection of possible finishes below. The cabinet could be used as a cupboard, sideboard, bar, media center, etc. We could even make a 3 or 4 door version if you prefer.

The green colour was derived from the kitchen at Derngate. Some of the kitchen furniture is painted a light green, and stands on a green & white tiled floor, so we have shown a version of this. Or for an even more dramatic bathroom opt for the Chinese Blue Mack used for a tearoom interior, that was contemporary with Derngate. All of the above designs are made to order, so we can adapt sizes, finishes, etc.
