About the Item

Unusual patchwork metal cityscape cabinet by Paul Evans. The finish which is a dark metal/bronze patination mixed with lighter tones is a very unusual bespoke finish. This cabinet has a smart black interior with drawers and shelves. Signed Paul Evans. This cabinet is especially useful due to its smaller scale, perfect for beside a chimney breast, for example. Internationally recognized for his unique residential furniture, Paul Evans trained early on as a metalsmith. His innovative mind eventually led him to create extraordinary metal furniture. He is best known for using his welding, metallurgy, and jewelry design skills to create collage-like metal furniture with sculpted, high-relief abstract forms. Evans moved to Lambertville, New Jersey in 1955, operating a workshop located on Goat Hill Road in a former chicken coop, just outside Lambertville. At the same time, he began sharing a showroom in New Hope with Phillip Lloyd Powell. Powell encouraged him to transfer his metallurgy skills to furniture. They worked closely together, and their creative partnership lasted for ten years. In 1970, Evans needed additional space and relocated his growing operation to Plumsteadville, Pennsylvania. During this time, he employed a staff between thirty-five and eighty people, depending on production demands. According to his children, most of his pieces were signed, and the custom built pieces were signed and dated. In 1979, he opened an additional showroom on East 61st Street in New York City. He created full lines of furniture for design company Directional Furniture. His work was shown at America House in New York for more than a decade.
