The butterfly effect
A unique lifestyle boutique in the south side of Glasgow has metamorphosed from the cocoon of a traditional ground floor tenement unit and spread its wings at 8 Skirving Street, Glasgow.

Designed by Jonathan McQuillan the bespoke interior comprises a flowing, free form, feminine feature shelf that runs the full length of the shop from floor to ceiling.  The dips and curves not only provide shelving and frame clothing but instill a sensual feminine quality that excites the senses.

This aeorodynamic form is picked up in a bespoke “butterfly table” and sales counter, handcrafted from Douglas Fir and laser etched Perspex sheets.

The unconventional approach required close collaboration between McQuillan and joiner Paul Burns, who on a modest budget of £15k devised an innovative method of forming and fixing.

Eschewing the Glasgow kiss of old Butterfly Kisses embraces design for fashion conscious Shawlandistas.
