From the early 1890s, a close-knit circle of around 75 designers operated in Glasgow, amongst whom are counted Charles Rennie Mackintosh and Margaret Macdonald. These would later go on to be defined as a distinct group with a predominant style to their output, commonly known as the Glasgow Style.  


While largely local to the city of Glasgow, they and their work had a far-reaching impact at the time and today continue to enjoy worldwide interest and appeal. 


Despite this, surprisingly little written material or formal research exists on the subject. 

The Glasgow Style website aims to provide a central hub of information on the subject and on the key designers working in the style and their output.


Guidance is provided on typical features and motifs, with the aim of providing greater clarity around what makes an antique or a designer Glasgow Style.
