About Charles & Rennie MackintoshFrom dyslexia bloomed a Scottish architect, designer, and watercolourist. Charles Rennie Mackintosh, the second born of eleven children of a superintendent, paved his way to be a superstar in the design world and a celebrated figure in Glasgow.

At school, he was known to have trouble reading and writing. However, in his later years, he transformed and became associated with the Arts and Crafts movement and an influential icon of Art Noveau in Scotland.

Mackintosh was the genius behind the argyle chair, famously designed for the Argyle Street tea rooms.

Before joining the architectural firm Honeyman and Keppie, where he became a partner in 1904, Mackintosh was an apprentice to a local architect, John Hutchinson. Mackintosh attended evening classes at the Glasgow School of Art during his apprenticeship, where his talents were polished and recognised.

In 1888, he received his first commission and won a prize from the Glasgow Institute of Fine Art to design a terraced house.

Throughout the years of working in architecture, Mackintosh developed his own style. He involved many floral-inspired motifs and curves and references to traditional Scottish architecture. He said, "Life is the leaves which shape and nourish a plant, but art is the flower which embodies its meaning".

The Hill House in Helensburgh became one of Mackintosh's most famous buildings. Working alongside his wife, Margaret Macdonald Mackintosh, not only did Mackintosh design the exterior of the house, but he also designed most of the interior, furniture, and fittings. Charles Rennie Mackintosh's most prominent furniture piece would also take a place in the famed Hill House. He called it the Hill House chair, also dubbed the Black Ladder Chair. It was exclusively designed for one of the Hill House rooms. The iconic Mackintosh chair, more of an art piece than just a chair. With its minimalist modern, decorative, and elegant design, the Black Ladder Chair was pertinent back in the day.
