Sunbrella fabrics continue to be featured in indoor as well as outdoor projects, and the new Caravan Collection by Richard Frinier for Pindler features Sunbrella’s 100 percent solution-dyed all weather acrylic fabrics.
Pindler notes that Richard Frinier is best known for his indoor/outdoor furniture and textile designs with an emphasis on the resort-at-home and ultra-luxe resort experience. His creations are specified for royal palaces, resorts, spas and private residences around the world. Having journeyed to more than 40 countries across five continents, he has a unique travel-inspired perspective that may be seen in his authentic, relevant and memorable designs. His new Caravan Collection drew inspiration from an extended stay he enjoyed in Morocco.
“Throughout all of my world travels thus far, my most memorable and impressionable adventure was my time in Morocco,” said Frinier. “The iconic designs represented in Moroccan rugs were of particular interest and inspiration, having discovered that many were vintage creations originally woven by the Beni Ourain tribes in the Atlas Mountains of Morocco dating back several centuries.”
The Caravan Collection authentically captures the neutral hues and unexpected accent colors, including shades of sand, camel, brown, black, indigo and henna reflecting the culture of the region. Many of the ancient rug designs passed down through generations of weavers became popularized by Le Corbusier during the mid-century modern movement, and today, architects and designers the world over seek out this inspired pattern work to bring a classically timeless artistry and a subtle exotic touch to interior and exterior design.
