Pindler & Pindler Adds European-Inspired Linen Fabrics From
The Richard Frinier Collection for Sunbrella®
Pindler & Pindler, a leading international fabrics and trim
resource for the interior design trade, has added an
exclusive line of European-inspired fabrics from the
Richard Frinier Collection for Sunbrella®. "Maison et
Jardin" features Frinier's interpretation of
classic linen constructions and coordinating stripes and
jacquards, resulting in elegant home décor that offers
legendary Sunbrella performance.
"We have seen a huge demand in the marketplace for
upper-end Sunbrella® performance fabrics that can be used
both indoors and out," said Curt Pindler, president of
Pindler & Pindler. "Using subtle nuances of yarn
shades and weave effects, Richard has created the look of
natural linen that is very popular among the design trade;
the timing of this collection is perfect."
Frinier created the Maison et Jardin Collection to erase
the boundaries between indoor and outdoor upholstery.
Authentically designed linen constructions in two weights
are complemented by a duo of sun-washed stripes and four
vintage jacquard patterns. Each fabric is subtly distressed
to create the luxurious appearance of gently-aged surface
textures with a naturally soft hand.
"We have re-interpreted heirloom linen weaves and
authentically styled jacquards for today's professional
interior designers and their clients," said Frinier,
who is an internationally recognized fabric, furniture and
accessories designer. "These fabrics can be used to
transform transitional and soft-modern living spaces to
evoke the romantic essence of the countryside of Provençe
or to create more sophisticated, contemporary living spaces
with neutral and tonal textures."
The Maison et Jardin Collection includes Classique, which
is a lighter weight construction reminiscent of traditional
linen textiles historically used for fine clothing and
table linens. Vintage is a heavier weight construction
epitomizing rich and textural characteristics sought after
in antique linens.
La Mer and La Plage are two stripe patterns with vintage
textural surfaces inspired by Frinier's travels to
Mediterranean seaside and coastal villages. The four
correlating jacquard patterns are Fontainebleau (floral
motif), Fleur-de-Lis (classically styled lily or iris),
Volute (scroll-shaped forms) and Orleans (garden gate
"Success in today's marketplace requires
collaboration among companies and individuals with common
goals and aesthetics," said Greg Rosendale, interior
fabrics manager for Glen Raven Custom Fabrics, the makers
of Sunbrella. "Pindler & Pindler, Richard Frinier and
Sunbrella have long histories of bringing beautiful and
durable fabrics to the marketplace; this latest addition by
Pindler & Pindler furthers our partnerships for the benefit
of professional interior designers."
