I spent the day at our Capel High Point Market showroom with our fabulous photographer of twenty-plus years, Wendell Wagner of Tri Group Studios. We shot six new rugs in our Williamsburg Collection for debut at High Point Market.
You’ll see Shalimar Resist and Ashland rugs in our new 2016 catalog – coming out week of April 11.
Look for a peek at what you’ll see in our new catalog from Williamsburg soon. Think – trend meets tradition in multiple shades of aqua, taupe, indigo, and more. It’s a departure from our existing Williamsburg collection, which captured classic Colonial patterns.
If I had to sum up in one word what we were after, it’s texture.
For the last few years, the rug market has been all about texture. I love what we’ve done with texture in this Williamsburg Collection. We incorporated a more sophisticated jacquard pattern and a mix of wool and viscous cotton with varied pile heights.
Whether the soft under foot pleasure of cotton chenille in a bedroom or the functional nubby feel of my grandmother’s braided kitchen rug, I believe texture is integral to good rug construction.
