Mackintosh's last real commission, in 1916, was Derngate, a remodel of a Georgian house in the center of Northampton. Some of the finished interiors were stunning, and even today 100 years later look strikingly modern. He had lost none of his creativity, and with these interiors he pre-empted the coming Art Deco style by several years. Being both a tribute to & inspired by Mackintoshs' designs at Derngate, we have produced some new bathroom designs. These draw on the furniture, colouring & patterns used in various places in Derngate. This is about adding Mackintosh style to your bathroom, to enjoy every day. This furniture is all bespoke, we don't give out sizes until we've agreed a spec. with a customer.
The idea for the furniture evolved from the living room in Derngate, with it's black painted walls & furniture. But is was the wall patterns that formed the basis for the decoration of this vanity unit. The Cubist style patterns are done in colours that form a striking contrast to the black furniture. The vanity unit can be supplied as a 2 door or 4 door version, with either white or black stone worktop, with a small upstand. The Cubist patterns could also be added to the side of the vanity as well, if you want. The vanity is quite a straight forward design, with a matching stepped plinth (which allows to the user's feet to go under the unit, which is more comfortable in use). It needs a matching square tap. Or you could have a more contemporary rectangular sit-on basin. The wall mirror follows the shape of the fire surround, with it's stepped shapes.
