Phillip Lloyd Powell, King Size Headboard with Two Floating Night Tables, USA, c. 1965
A rare and unique custom American black walnut headboard by Phillip Lloyd Powell from the Phillip Lloyd Powell/Paul Evans Studio in New Hope, PA. The king sized headboard features Powell’s masterful chip carving technique which highlights the imperfections of the wood in order to realize its full beauty. As always, the contour of the hand-chipping relates to the movement of the grain and works around the natural density patterns of the wood. The undulating carved accent panel features a leaf motif giving the headboard a graceful, sinuous feel while the gold leaf over red lacquer highlights the warmth of the wood’s natural color.
Two cantilevered night stands are attached to both sides of the headboard. Each nightstand features a gold leaf gilded open shelf with an accompanying drawer faced in matching gold leaf. Vintage cast iron nail heads, typical in Evans and Powell’s designs, are seen on the surface of the tables.
