Phillip Lloyd Powell, sideboard, American walnut, grass-cloth, United States, circa 1960

This sideboard is designed and made by Phillip Lloyd Powell. The credenza is made out of solid walnut and the sliding doors are covered with grass-cloth. The joinery on this piece is very well made, as is visible in the dovetail joineries. The right part of the cabinet holds two drawers, of which one is meant for cutlery.  The right part has another shelve for storage. The piece vibrates extraordinary warmth and has a natural and earthy feel to it.

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 their 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.
