THE WILLOW TEA ROOMS
The Willow Tea rooms mark yet another change in Mackintosh's style. Here he tempers the harshness of certain of his earlier tea room designs with the elegance of some of his white interiors. The results are evident in the Salon de Luxe. The emphasis is not so literally pictorial but rather more subtle and understated; carved and organic decoration is banished or reduced to a minimum and rhythm instead established using the oval and square with furniture more attuned than ever before to the architectural space in which it moves.
