Lloyd Powell, Phillip

(1919 - 2008)

Phillip Lloyd Powell was a Pennsylvania craftsman and designer, who was an important member of the American studio furniture movement. Powell started making furniture in his family’s basement when he was 16 years old. He studied engineering at the Drexel Institute of Technology and after the war, he opened a workshop in New Hope, Pennsylvania, where George Nakashima also had his studio. Paul Evans (1931-1987) started as Powell's protégé in the workshop around 1955, which led to a collabaration until 1966. Powell staid in New Hope until his death in 2008.

 

For nearly two decades, the collection of Bloomberry has been driven by the cultural reference between architecture, art and design.

The quality of our collection is reflected in the sophistication of craftsmanship and the character of the scars of time. Our restoration workshops are built around the same principal and work to the highest degree of craftsmanship.

Bloomberry is housed in a former textile factory and is located near Maastricht, in the south of The Netherlands. Within an hour of Antwerp and Cologne. Within two hours from Amsterdam and four hours from Paris.
