Mackintosh designed a complete suite of furniture for his marital bedroom at 120 Mains Street, Glasgow, comprising four-poster bed, wardrobe, cheval mirror, tables and washstand. All were painted white and the majority set with coloured glass and painted insets; all were subsequently brought to 6 Florentine Terrace when the Mackintoshes moved there in 1906.
