Caravan Collection by Richard Frinier
Pindler has once again collaborated with award winning designer Richard Frinier to introduce the new Exclusive Caravan Collection. This collection features Sunbrella 100% solution-dyed all weather acrylic fabrics.
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. For more than 30 years, he has designed thousands of creations across hundreds of collections garnering over 85 global design excellence and career achievement awards, including a Lifetime Achievement Award from the International Casual Furnishings Association and a Stars of Design Award from the design community through the Pacific Design Center in Los Angeles. 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, a unique travel-inspired perspective may be seen in his authentic, relevant and memorable designs. His latest textile creations for Sunbrella® available exclusively through Pindler are no exception in The Exclusive Caravan Collection, where he drew inspiration from an extended stay in Morocco.
“Throughout all of my world travels thus far, my most memorable and impressionable adventure was my time in Morocco,” said Frinier. Adding, “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 Exclusive 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.
The designer’s inspirations from Morocco are clearly woven into The Exclusive Caravan Collection, including textural constructions and body cloths, and authentic patterns and color work, which may be effortlessly incorporated into modern, transitional and traditionally styled residential or hospitality environments.
