Charles Rennie Mackintosh <ul><ul><li>He was a designer in the arts & crafts movement and also Art nouveau. He has a considerable influence on European design. Japanese design became more accessible and gain popularity. This style was admired by Mackintosh because of: its restraint and economy of means rather than ostentatious accumulation; its simple forms and natural materials rather than elaboration and artifice; the use of texture and light and shadow rather than pattern and ornament. In the old western style furniture was seen as ornament that displayed the wealth of its owner and the value of the piece was established according to the length of time spent creating it. In the Japanese arts furniture and design focused on the quality of the space, which was meant to evoke a calming and organic feeling to the interior. (1928) </li></ul></ul>
