Take a Seat
Take a Seat
This month we pull up a seat or two or three or 175! in the restored Mackintosh tea rooms. It’s time to tick off a big topic- Mackintosh and chairs- and here at MATW we have some incredible examples of handmade pieces, all made in Scotland by expert furniture makers. Join us as we learn about ladderbacks, box armchairs, Salon de Luxe thrones and even the impressive Cashier’s Chair made for Miss Cranston herself. Did you know Mackintosh chairs feature in some very famous films? Because we do. We finish off by reluctantly considering other non-Mackintosh chairs that have caught our eye, and fangirl over Wick Heritage Museum (well, Jodie does) up in Sutherland and Caithness.
