The Seaside collection got its name from the many iconic and romantic coastal destinations and locales around the world that served as inspiration for the distinctively beautiful performance textiles.

“As a native Southern Californian, I have lived in and around a coastal region my entire life, and I gravitate toward seaside destinations and lifestyles,” Frinier said. “There is an inherent allure to seaside cities and resort villages that beckons us to come closer and then compels us to linger, leaving a lasting mark on our memories and in our hearts long after we have returned home.”

The Seaside collection has two base cloths, Stonebrook and Bayshore; two stripes, Coastview and Fairharbor; and three patterns, Palma, Freeport and Southpoint.

Coastview is woven using the Stonebrook construction, illustrating a classic and spirited espadrille stripe. Fairharbor is a cabana stripe in sun-washed and soft pastel colors, which complement the Bayshore construction.

Palma is a banana leaf pattern on a jacquard construction inspired by the botanical gardens and landscapes of seaside retreats. Freeport is a woven jacquard with an oversized, open basket weave pattern enhanced by a slightly distressed and hand-woven appearance. Southpoint, with its distressed jacquard diamond pattern, evokes imagery of more nostalgic and classic seaside resort architecture in a stylized reference to decorative tiles.

The Seaside collection by Richard Frinier for Sunbrella is available exclusively through Pindler
