Mackintosh left his mark on three types of architecture: public buildings, private houses and tearooms. Tearooms spread over in Glasgow between 19th and 20th centuries: in these places, people of different backgrounds could meet and talk, while drinking a cup of tea or a non-alcoholic drink (to counter Gin Houses and alcoholism). Miss Kate Cranston was the owner of many tearooms in Glasgow, and she was – for more than twenty years – the main Mackintosh client, supporting his most creative and innovative projects. These chairs belong to the furnishings of the Ingram Street Tea Room, a project of the 1900s. The model with the tall back was then used by Mackintosh in an apartment at 120 Main Street, which he built and where he lived with his wife Margaret Macdonald. This second version probably has been black lacquered: Mackintosh, in fact, tested chromatic contrasts between the “all-white rooms” and the darker rooms or furnishings. Open pore lacquered ashwood frame. Polyurethane foam seat. Leather or fabric upholstery.
