Capel Rugs is going to introduce a new versatile import rug collection at the winter furniture markets in Atlanta and Las Vegas called Breccan.
The new collection is a 100% wool design in three solid colorways — ink, brownstone and spice. Hand tufted using 100% wool, the yarns are space dyed for extra visual interest. The design also is constructed with tip-sheared loop pile for enhanced texture.
Cameron Capel, president, sales and marketing, says, “This collection is very well priced and easy to decorate around, since it fits in with so many other styles and colors. The tip shearing gives the rug a bit of heft, and the space dying adds dimension to the color.”
Capel Rugs also plans to expand its popular Fuego collection with a new Keshan design in cream. In transitional styling, Fuego is a machine woven collection made in Turkey of 100% olefin.
In addition, Capel Rugs will be featuring a number of new rugs from the October High Point Market that have never been shown in Atlanta or Las Vegas. They include the new licensed line created in partnership with Anthony Baratta, which was a smash hit in High Point.
One of the most comprehensive launches Capel has ever made, the Anthony Baratta for Capel line includes two collections of hand tufted designs in wool and viscose; an indoor/outdoor collection of five loop pile designs in olefin; a collection of two easy-care plaid designs made of recycled PET plastic from bottles; two braided collections — one in wool and the other in polypropylene; and an additional braided collection in polypropylene with loop hook centers.
All of the designs feature Baratta’s signature mix of nautical, coastal and other Americana-inspired themes in a bold, bright palette. The collection begins shipping to stores in January.
New designs added to the licensed Genevieve Gorder line during the fall market also will be available for viewing for the first time in Atlanta and Las Vegas. The additions include two new designs in the Finesse collection — Mali Cloth and NY Toile — and Flower Pop, a cheerful hand tufted design in four colorways that matches a best-selling fabric design Gorder created for P/Kaufmann.
Capel Rugs will be attending the Atlanta International Area Rug Market from January 10 to 14, and the Las Vegas Market from January 28 to February 1.
