Phillip Lloyd Powell 'New Hope' Lounge Chair

$26,700Asking Price


Philip Lloyd Powell, New Hope lounge chair, American walnut and off-white velvet, United States, 1960s. This sculptural armchair executed in American walnut and fabric upholstery is designed by Philip Lloyd Powell. The name 'New Hope' is a reference to the place where Powell opened his workshop in 1953. This chair has a soft, sensuous, biomorphic frame. The organic armrests are beautifully carved by hand form a sculptural contrast to the boomerang or L-shaped seating. Lovely details are seen in the round wood-joints with a black stripe on the side of the frame and the points of the frame show small indentations. The cross connections on the back are a nice compromise between the organic and straight lines. The down filled cushions make this into a highly comfortable chair. This chair features a fabric upholstery that is in good condition. Phillip Lloyd Powell (1920-2008) was an American self-taught designer who designed natural, sinuous and textural furniture. All of his pieces are handmade from high quality, grained woods that often recall there natural shape and form. Another natural material that he often used was slate, the deep grey material was often used for table or credenza tops. Lloyd Powell only created about a thousand pieces in his lifetime. He was a man who only want to produce exquisite pieces. His shop was thus only open on Saturday evenings. In comparison to his contemporary George Nakashima, who produced about 10.000 pieces. It was in fact Nakashima who urged Powell to begin designing for himself in the first place. In the beginning of his career Powell shared his workshop with Paul Evans, but when both their business had grown, they decided to go solo. Philip Lloyd Powell's furniture is now known for its solid, natural, sensuous and exquisitely well-crafted handmade pieces.
