New In – c.1958 Phillip Lloyd Powell Cabinets

New In today are this exciting, large pair of wall cabinets by the American 20th Century designer Phillip Lloyd Powell (1919-2008). They have concave doors and when opened the shelved interiors are decorated in red lacquer. They are finished on the exterior in silver and gold leaf in brick form on a red background, which has been lacquered. The incorporated decorative handles are of Asian origin. Phillip often incorporated unusual elements such as these into his works. He is best known for his partnership and collaboration with the other great 20th Century American designer; Paul Evans.

This pair of cabinets were designed for his own use at home and were made around c.1958
