About the Artist: M.H. Baillie Scott was one of the great names of the established Arts and Crafts Movement, amongst whose major proponents were William Morris and John Ruskin, who lived at. Although both these men influenced Baillie Scott, he went on to forge his own distinctive style.
From the ornate medievalism of his early half-timbered houses he progressed towards a simpler architecture, which relied upon truth to material and function, and precise craftsmanship. His interest in all aspects of design led Baillie Scott to produce furniture, fabrics, wall coverings and pianos, which sat perfectly in his harmonious interiors. He developed the idea of the integrated interior. English oak or elm planking was used for doors and furniture. His aim was to create simplicity, a sense of repose and a homogeneous atmosphere. He took Morris’s dictum to have only beautiful objects in a house one step further – beauty being achieved by objects designed to an ‘exquisite appropriateness to its position and to its use’.
