Paul Evans Argente Console c. 1967 $125,000>
Todd Merrill Studio

This Argente four-door console cabinet (signed PE 1967) was acquired from a New York collector, along with a corresponding wall mounted cabinet. Both pristine museum-quality works were initially purchased from the Directional showroom on Third Avenue before Directional had made them publicly available, and represent the finest condition and preservation possible. In 1968 Directional debuted their first line of Argente pieces based on preset designs (like these cabinets), which differed from the bespoke Paul Evans Studio pieces that were commissioned through a collaborative process with the client.

With both his Studio works and Directional line, Evans sustained complete creative and quality control by personally overseeing his loyal production team and refusing to outsource labor.
