A modern classic

Today, McIntosh pieces offer homeowners a seamless way to blend vintage furniture into the modern home. This is largely owing to their bright and glossy appearance to straddle the boundaries between usability and design.

This encapsulates what McIntosh was originally known for in the 1860s. The company was founded in 1869 by Alexander Henry McIntosh in Kirkcaldy, a small Scottish town in the region of Fife. At that time, McIntosh became popular thanks to the brand’s high quality furniture designs, quickly earning a name on the international stage. The brand exhibited across the world, most notably in Paris in 1878 and Sydney in 1879. From there, McIntosh was seen as one of the pioneers of decor modernism, strengthening Britain’s image as leading furniture makers.

McIntosh quickly outperformed targets and expanded with a London office and other factories. Like many other manufacturers, the company’s equipment was utilised for the war effort during the early 1940s. But after World War II the brand quickly re-established itself as one of the leading manufacturers of mid-century furniture, similar in style to popular designs of the era from Denmark. In comparison to similar Danish teak and rosewood veneered pieces, McIntosh furniture was built to extraordinarily high standards.

Often imitated, McIntosh pieces now represent an enduring modernist style that suits contemporary homes of almost any interior theme. The flexibility of McIntosh pieces lie in the predominately straight lines of the furniture fused with small handles, interesting proportions and a sense of pleasing utilitarianism.
