MOORPARK, Calif. - 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, 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 pattern.)
"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."
