Phillip Lloyd Powell, Sculpted Walnut Three-Seat Sofa, USA, c. 1960s
This rare, one-of-a-kind three-seat walnut sofa is a prime example of Philip Lloyd Powell’s sensitivity towards wood and talent for carpentry and construction. The hand carved backrest defines each seat with proportions meant to optimize comfort and sturdiness. The elegant woodwork was carved by chip carving, Powell’s signature technique. Displaying Powell’s skilled craftsmanship, the contour of the chipping relates to natural patterns in the wood’s grain and density. The sofa’s exposed nails are a rare and significant feature, revealing the artist’s hand at work. Beautifully designed, the sofa features newly upholstered cushions in a light grey velvet. Excellent original condition.
