"The replication of the furniture for 78 Derngate was not a simple task. It revealed many interesting and un-anticipated avenues. This talk will discuss the making of the furniture and also explore some of these avenues.
The unique and special furniture for both the hall and the guest bedroom was designed by Charles Rennie Mackintosh with steerage from W.J. Bassett Lowke. Both schemes are quite different and this affected the replication of the furniture. Wednesday 29th Mar 2017
Venue: 78 Derngate
This event has now taken place. We hope to make available in due course a video and this will be published later in 2017 via our Centenary website.
