Kindel to Launch Pinehurst Licensed Collection

Kindel Grand Rapids, a producer of luxury casegoods and upholstery, has partnered with the famed Pinehurst Resort and Country Club for a 13-piece collection that will be unveiled at this week’s High Point Market.

The collection, which includes upholstery, occasional and dining room furniture, uses premier knotty pine veneers and maple – the pine reflecting the landscape of the resort in Pinehurst, N.C., that has been described as the “cradle of American golf.”

“Both brands have a storied history of craftsmanship. Whether it is luxury furniture or world-class golf, this unique collection reflects that glowing reputation,” said Jim Fisher, chairman of Kindel Grand Rapids.

Highlights of the collection include the Pinehurst Cocktail Table, featuring a glass top depicting a 1922 vintage map of the original courses designed by the legendary Donald Ross; the Longleaf Armchair accented with a carved crest rail of Longleaf Pine boughs; the Fairway Table, a 60-inch, round pedestal table made of the classic Pine veneer; and the Putter Boy Club Chair with Knotty Pine and bracket feet.

The collection also includes eight new wood stains, pigmented stains and paint colors that are available on any of the pieces. 

“There is a wonderful, casual elegance to the design elements with a respectful nod to the tradition,” said Fisher.  “A fresh approach to colors and mix of patterns blend perfectly in expressing the Pinehurst sensibility.”

Each piece of furniture is embellished with a bronze medallion of the Putter Boy, the iconic logo of the Pinehurst Resort, which was founded in 1895.

“We clearly saw the significance of tying the history of the resort together with Kindel because we share common goals about the value of our heritage and carrying forward principles of our craft,” said Tom Pashley, president of the resort.

Kindel’s factory in Grand Rapids, Mich., produces the high-end Kindel, Councill and Karges brands.
