Tangier by Richard Frinier for Century
Tuesday, October 16, 2018
From its fine beaches and lush highland valleys to its exotic spices and evocative old world cities, travelers cannot escape the simple beauty and charm of Morocco. Peaceful and calm defines the mood, while sipping traditional Moroccan mint tea and enjoying pastillas drizzled with honey and sprinkles of sesame seeds. These rituals signify hospitality, friendship, and relaxation in the Moroccan culture; they represent the inspiration behind Tangier.
Designer Richard Frinier says, “The Tangier collection embodies a strong sense of place, capturing the romantic and exotic essence of authentic Moorish architecture that I discovered on an extended stay in Morocco.” Distinctive forms with arched Moroccan design details are accentuated with an artfully hand-woven and open-weave pattern with a very specific fretwork motif. Its modern appeal is infused into each memorable piece summoning you to unwind in a spectacularly faceted, crescent-shaped and endlessly configurable modular lounge with coordinating woven or teak occasional tables creating the ultimate resort-at-home destination for lingering, entertaining, and relaxing.”
“Richard Frinier’s newest collection, Tangier, shows a progression into more mixed materials,” says Haynes King, director of Outdoor for Century Furniture. “Mixing natural teak with scagliola stone on occasional pieces complements the all-weather resin woven frames. It continues our opulent scale in an updated transitional collection.”
Over the past 16 years, Century Furniture and Richard Frinier have launched many memorable collections reflecting original styles and multiple award-winning creations infused with design elements and embellishments inspired by the designer’s travels to more than 40 countries across five continents. This design aesthetic, combined with a very high level of attention to detail, artisan craftsmanship, superior execution, and exceptional customer service from Century have each played a role in making this collaboration one to watch throughout the industry.
