Capel's Designer Brands Ready to Make a Splash During Summer Markets

Troy, N.C. - Exploring styles ranging from bold to demure and traditional to contemporary, Capel's team of high-profile designers continues to create beautiful floor coverings that set the standard for the rug industry. Heading into summer markets in Atlanta, Las Vegas and Tupelo, Capel's latest additions to its licensee program, including new COCOCOZY, Genevieve Gorder, Kevin O'Brien and Biltmore For Your Home designs, feature awe-inspiring curves, hand-drawn lines and distinctive patterns.

"With our licensee program, we work with the home fashion world's top designers to create innovative rugs that showcase our unique strengths in styling, construction and quality," says Allen Robertson, vice president of sales for Capel Rugs. "This market, we're featuring an exciting mix of fresh colors, unusual textures and fashion-forward colors and themes designed to capture the imaginations of today's increasingly sophisticated consumers."

Highlights include:

Lyrical, Ring and Maroc are three new additions to COCOCOZY's hugely successful line of area rugs for Capel. Hand knotted using 100% New Zealand, semi-worsted wool, sizing includes 5'x8', 7'x9', 8'x11' and 9'x13'. Lyrical is available in silver green, grey, cornflower blue and indigo blue; Ring is offered in a neutral, yet stunning, grey colorway; and Maroc is shown in a sophisticated dark blue. A 5'x8' rug may retail for $1,795.

Ancient Arrow features imperfect, hand-drawn lines, which demonstrate an ancient pattern repeated and striped to something contemporary, but also classic. The first hand-tufted rug in the Genevieve Gorder collection, Ancient Arrow is made in India of 80% wool and 20% viscose in six colorways: grey pigeon, leo sun, lilac, saffron stone, stone azure and stone bronze. Available in 5' x 8', 8' x 10' and 9' x 12' sizes, this contemporary rug in a 5' x 8' may retail for $673.

Mediterranean-inspired collections from Kevin O'Brien have received such widespread acclaim, that Capel has adopted a handful of additional colorways to three lines. Tuscan Sun, which was honored during the 2014 America's Magnificent Carpet Awards, is now available in a neutral beige colorway. Riviera, which launched in an assortment of spa tones, has gone neutral as well, with updated cream and grey colorways. And with Ramblas now in Mediterranean blue, you'll feel the enchantment and romance of Italy.

Pergola is inspired by Biltmore's wisteria and trumpet creeper-covered pergola overlooking the former lawn tennis court located below the Italian Garden. The pergola is supported by a promenade of majestic columns and is adorned with statuary and trickling wall fountains. This traditional hand-tufted rug is made from 100% wool in India in four colorways: spa, beige, cream and navy. Sizing ranges from 5' x 8' up to 8' x 11'. A 5' x 8' rug may retail for $673.

Granada: George Vanderbilt traveled to Granada, Spain, with his cousins on a trip in the late 1800s to visit the exquisite Alhambra palace and citadel. Inspired by that journey, Capel's new Granada rug from Biltmore features a distinctive Moorish flair. This traditional hand-tufted rug is made in India of 100% wool with a micro-loop pile. Size options include 5' x 8', 7' x 9' and 8' x 11'. A 5' x 8' rug may retail for $673.
