The Chair: 18th Century to the Present Day

Glasgow 2020 Chair Exhibition


Our Glasgow Spring 2020 exhibition will focus on The Chair. An object close to all of us but one that reflects developments in furniture design - from aesthetic trends to new materials and production technologies - better than any else. Highlights include a named Darvel chair from the West Coast of Scotland, a Charles Rennie Mackintosh ladderback chair for Miss Cranston’s Tearooms, a bespoke piece by international contemporary designer Tim Gosling and a pair of Paul Tuttle ‘Zeta’ lounge chairs.

We are delighted to display the exhibition in our Glasgow gallery and include chairs that are consigned for sale in the upcoming Spring auction Calendar to feature in our Five Centuries, Decorative Arts and Modern Made auctions.
