Q&A With Design Director Sarah Williamson
Is there anything else designers should know about the Hearst Castle collection?
Pindler has been so fortunate over the past 23+ years to be given access to the vast and diverse collections and archives of decorative arts collected by William Randolph Hearst. We are very excited for this new collection to launch and to continue telling the story of Hearst’s passion for all things beautiful. We are also very proud to say a portion of the proceeds from this collection goes to the preservation of the property, which is dedicated to preserving and interpreting the areas of historic architecture, landscapes and decorative arts.

Renacimiento was inspired by an ornate wood carving found in the lower South Duplex Suite. The Duplex Suites were designed by Julia Morgan to accommodate more of Hearst’s guests in Casa Grande. Our interpretation of the carving work was translated into a beautiful, large scale, floral design that is embroidered on a wool blended felt ground cloth.
Provenca is an embroidered, and corded, damask design on a linen blended ground cloth. The motif of our interpretation was inspired by the bedspread found in Casa Del Mar, and the embroidery technique and colorations were influenced by the beautiful flowers in the gardens around it.
Hojas was inspired by the bounty of fuchsia that is planted along the esplanade that encircles Casa Grande. This inspiration was translated into a full coverage foliage design, that is embroidered on a linen blended ground cloth, and features a beautiful ombre of color.
Fiorito was inspired by the floral shade of a gilded lamp found in the sitting room of Casa del Sol. Fiorito is a classically elegant floral frame design, embroidered on a natural colored ground. The detailed embroidery showcases striking multi-colored colorways.
Alameda was inspired by an armchair found in one of the Doge’s Suite bedrooms. The framed floral design of the woven chair fabric was translated into a new embroidery design, that features various techniques on a sateen ground cloth, and has both fresh and traditional multi-colored colorways.
Terrazza was inspired by the geometric wood carving on the fascia of a desk found in a bedroom in the North Wing of Casa Grande. The carving was translated into a midscale design, which is embroidered on a faux silk ground, and that harmonizes back to the various new large-scale embroideries.
Ferronerie was inspired by the magnificent iron work featured on the front entrance of Casa Del Mar. This grand design translates seamlessly to a jacquard velvet quality, which makes a dramatic statement in rich colorways. Ferronerie meets 30,000 double rubs and is offered in four colorways.
Esplanade was inspired by the carefully laid flooring in the east vestibule of the Morning Room, in Casa Grande. This mosaic stonework has been translated into a printed design on a textural linen blended ground cloth, which gives it a truly woven appearance. Esplanade meets 25,00 double rubs and is offered in three colorways.
Keep the inspiration with you!
NEW YEAR, NEW SPACE
We’ve said goodbye to 2020, and now it’s time to say hello to a new year and new opportunities to get creative with exciting up-and-coming fabric trends. Pindler’s design team predicts that 2021 will bring bold colors, comforting environments and a focus on cleanability. As these trends shape the industry this year, vibrant hues, serene shades, soft textures and performance qualities will all be in high demand.
The start of a new year is the perfect excuse to revamp existing spaces and make a bold statement. Vibrant colors like intense purples, saturated oranges and lively pinks are a great way to add a touch of fun. These invigorating shades energize any environment, whether you make a big commitment — like paint or upholstery — or add in small accessories for a pop of color.
Now that the weather is warming up, it’s time to break out the pool toys, barbecues, patio furniture and—of course—festive summer fabrics. This is the perfect time to experiment with playful patterns, bright and cheerful designs, and seasonally inspired color combinations. Here’s a look at just a few of our favorite summer fabric trends.

Sunbrella Network Collection
by Richard Frinier
Inspired by the fast-paced world of social media networking and the growing human obsession of online instant gratification, internationally-acclaimed designer Richard Frinier’s award-winning Network collection featuring Sunbrella fabrics is a subtle yet transformative layering of constructions, patterns and colors that capture and suspend the attention span.
Desiring to press pause and capture the world’s digital landscape, Frinier has created energetic styles that reference his interpretation of shared digital content – seeking to translate internet lexicon into original, relevant and memorable textile creations that are universal and immediately distinguishable by design.
Liora Manné’s fabrics, wall coverings and rugs are created through her patented needle punch process. Polyester fibers are hand punched with a needle, much like the ancient art of felting, to create a design. These small hand needles are used to poke the fibers which bind them together; the needle punching pushes the fibers through each other making the fibers attach.
After the hand punching is complete, the fabric is put through a large needle punching machine which presses the fibers, flattening them and securing them together. No glue or sewing is used.
Once the fabric has been completely needle punched and passed out of the machine, it is coated with a binder for durability, and nano silver particles are added to make it antimicrobial. This process makes the product mildew free and stain resistant.
Liora Manné has created artistic, durable and healthy products that can be used for hospitality, universities, healthcare, museums, libraries, corporate spaces, outdoor, and more. The possibilities are endless.
The Design & Ordering Process
Tell us about your contract, hospitality, residential, or healthcare project.
Send us (or bring in) your inspiration: a sketch, painting, photograph, etc. We can also look at designs already in the Liora Manné catalog.
Have a specific color scheme in mind? We can match any pantone, paint color, or fabric.
We'll work with the Liora Manné team in NYC who will then create a "strike-off" for review. The "strike-off" will be soft & lofty so that changes can be easily made before you sign off on the design.
The design and specs will go to the factory and you'll have your choice of a 60 or 90 day lead time.
We can't wait to see what you create!
