Paul Evans 1970s Directional Furniture Burl Patchwork Cabinet


A 1970s burl patchwork design cabinet designed by Paul Evans (American, 1937-1981) for Directional Furniture. This substantial piece has dark solid veneered sides, while the front cabinet doors and trim are a lighter wooden burl patchwork. The upper shelf is open for display storage. The top set of cabinet doors open to reveal a singular shelf. The bottom set of doors conceal a small drawer and two shelves. The cabinet doors and drawer use magnetic push latches, which open when pressure is applied.

Paul Evans was an American sculpture and furniture designer best known for his handmade furniture created in partnership with Directional. He pursued a craft education at the Rochester Institute of Technology, and later at Cranbrook. In 1955, Evans opened a showroom with designer Phillip Lloyd Powell which ran successfully for a decade. By the 1960s, Evans partnered with the Directional furniture company who allowed for increased experimentation and design development.
