Title Furniture in the main bedroom of the Hill House, Helensburgh
Alternative Title Fitted wardrobes in the main bedroom of the Hill House, Helensburgh
Abstract/Summary This image shows a set of fitted wardrobes designed for the main bedroom of the house. On the east wall of the bedroom, where these wardrobes are located, Mackintosh cut out a bay which runs the full length of the wall. The wardrobes thus appear to be free-standing. Between the wardrobes is a black ladderback chair and a cheval mirror can be seen to the right of the image.
