I'm very interested in finding out more about the design history of furniture - particularly chairs - in the North East of Scotland. Was it all passed down via word of mouth or do written records of designs exist?
Any information that anyone has on this subject would be most welcome.
Thanks in advance.

How about trying to contact someone at the Lighthouse in Glasgow? I toured the museum a few years ago and they seem to focus on design. Maybe someone there can point you in the right direction.

Here's from the web site:

The Lighthouse is one of the largest temporary
exhibition venues for architecture and design
in Europe

Is it actually temporary or is it contemporary?

Funny! I just did a cut and paste from the site. Looks like a typo.

I recall they had design exhibits ranging from clothing to furniture to chicken coups.

My thought was that someone at the museum might be able to point him in the right direction to further info. They did have a lot of furniture. I took a 360 degree photo of Glasgow from the "lighthouse" observatory, which is above the museum.
