Paul Evans Pair of Forged Steel Chairs



A superb example of Paul Evans’ forged metal techniques, this unique pair of chairs features hand-sculpted bases formed from forged, welded, patinated and polychromed steel. Each has an elegant recline and large seat and back upholstered in parchment colored leather. Floating in a room, the bases are unique sculptures to be experienced from every angle. Created in Evans’ studio in New Hope, PA, the chairs are in excellent original condition.

Leather upholstery.


Paul Evans


Paul Evans (1931-1987) was an iconic American furniture designer, sculptor, and artist who is famous for his contributions to the American Craft Movement of the 1970s and for his work with the influential American manufacturer Directional Furniture. Paul Evans’ Brutalist-inspired sculpted metal furnishings distinguish him from others in the world of design.

Performer Lenny Kravitz, a collector of Evans pieces, describes his distinctive work as “stunningly beautiful, stunningly ugly, stunningly tacky, [and] stunningly sophisticated.”
