Richard Frinier Wins Platinum ADEX Award

Thursday, May 18, 2017

Renowned designer Richard Frinier was honored with a Platinum award in this year’s ADEX awards competition, an industry recognition of design and product innovation, for his Seaside Collection of Sunbrella fabrics.

The Seaside Collection is named for the many iconic and romantic coastal destinations and locales around the world that served as inspiration for the distinctively beautiful and exceptionally executed performance textiles.

“As a native Southern Californian, I have lived in and around a coastal region my entire life and am naturally drawn to 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 is comprised of: two base cloths – Stonebrook and Bayshore; two stripes – Coastview and Fairharbor; and, three patterns – Palma, Freeport and Southpoint.

Stonebrook is a lightweight, textured plain weave made from ratiné yarns with the appearance of beach sand. Bayshore is a box weave construction woven on a common warp allowing for a beautiful range of coastal hues.

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 that 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 basketweave pattern enhanced by a slightly distressed and hand-woven appearance. Southpoint, with its softly 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.
