The Capel Rugs showroom was at the center of the High Point Market festivities last week as we introduced more than a dozen new collections in a variety of constructions and colorways. High Point Market is the largest home furnishings industry trade show in the world with more than 75,000 attendees. We welcomed Hable Construction to our group of top designers, unveiled six new collections to our highly successful Kevin O’Brien program and presented four lucky showroom visitors with prizes.

The founders of Hable Construction, Susan Hable Smith and Katharine Hable Sweeney, were on hand for the official debut of their new Hableland collection. The Lollipops, Cupcakes and Hearts rugs were inspired by the sisters’ love for color and the delight of sweetness and playfulness.
Home Fashion Forecast singled out the Hableland Cloud People rug as “maybe the cutest thing at High Point Market.” The 100% wool rug serves as an infinite reminder to celebrate the natural beauty all around us. The entire collection caters to the young and young at heart and works in many different spaces – a child’s room, an office or a living room.
We also launched six collections by Kevin O’Brien during High Point Market. O’Brien was inspired by his travels to Tuscany, and the designs draw upon the striking landscape scenes captured in his sketches during the trip. Apartment Therapy was impressed with the lovely aqua tones featured on the Lisbon and Riviera rugs. The collections, which also include Finesse – Santorini, Portofino, Ramblas and Tuscan Sun – bring the enchantment and romance of Italy into any home.
Capel Rugs awarded prizes to four lucky customers during the October High Point Market, including Sonos wireless speakers and a Biltmore® gift basket.
The Sonos wireless speaker systems (with Bridge connectors) were awarded to Cindy Ray Interiors, Inc., in West Palm Beach, Fla.; Linda Cotter of Classics Interiors in Ellicott City, Md.; and Carol McClintock of Elegant Designs in Myrtle Beach, S.C. The Biltmore® gift basket was awarded to Ruth Hughes of Classic Design in Shreveport, La.
The turnout at the market was magnificent. Showcasing our designers and their new work is certainly one of our proudest moments, and our company prides itself on producing quality, creative and functional rugs. Our new Hable Construction and Kevin O’Brien rugs are merely a glimpse of what we have in store from our amazing designers in the coming months. We are already looking forward to what will happen during High Point Market in April 2014.
