    McIntosh, a Scottish furniture manufacturer, is celebrated in the vintage market for its mid-century teak cabinetry and sideboards. The company was established in 1869 by Alexander Henry (A.H) McIntosh in Kirkcaldy, Fife. Despite having an aesthetic that resembles Danish modern, McIntosh has always marketed itself as a distinctly Scottish enterprise, embracing traditional craftsmanship and employing local, skilled cabinetmakers. Many pieces from the 1950s and 1960s still bear the McIntosh label, featuring the Scottish thistle and crown. Tom Robertson, who served as the head designer from 1948 to 1983, is famous for his iconic teak Dunvegan sideboard from the 1960s, notable for its sculpted handles.
