Adding Interiors 1900 to our range also gives us the opportunity to bring you some stunning Mackintosh style lighting and I wanted to take the time to write a little about Mackintosh and how that fits in with Tiffany Lighting.
Charles Rennie Mackintosh was a prominent member of the famous Glasgow School of architecture and design. His Art Nouveau creations are most famously known for the rose which features on all of our Mackintosh inspired lighting. The Willow Table Lamp is a perfect example of this and the rose can be seen as different from other Art Nouveau floral themes as it has an angular appearance. Named after the famous Willow tea rooms in Glasgow, if you ever have the chance to visit it is wonderful.
Interiors 1900 was the first company in the world to mix the Mackintosh style with Tiffany methods and all of it's designs are unique to them. Although Mackintosh didn't use the techniques that we now call Tiffany Lighting , it fits in beautifully with many of the Art Nouveau designs (you can see some of the original Mackintosh Lighting here)
Personally , I love the Damselfly, the colours are stunning and it is an easy lamp to coordinate and although Tiffany is a very traditional style of lighting, something like this could look perfect in a modern room. Mackintosh must be one of my favourite British desgners, a trip to Glasgow is a wonderful experience and you can feel the history oozing from every brown brick. I was lucky enough to get a one to one tour of Hill House a couple of years ago, it was simply breathtaking and I would recommend a visit to anyone.
