The Scottish architect and designer Charles Rennie Mackintosh regarded the space in and around furniture to be as important as the wood and upholstery.

Originally painted white, Mackintosh's high, narrow Hill House chair was meant to be decorative - not to be actually sat on.

The Hill House Chair was designed in 1902-1903 for the publisher W.W. Blackie. The original still resides in the bedroom of the Hill House in Helensburgh.
