Troy, N.C. - Capel Rugs' fabulous new designs will be unveiled at the upcoming High Point Furniture Market. In the spirit of the company's new style point of view™, Capel promises an engaging experience with vivid color palettes, vignettes that tell stories through layering, arrangement and hue - along with revelatory new direction in design.
Known for her hip, urban style, Genevieve Gorder's unique design sensibility will be a backdrop for Capel's fashion-forward introductions this spring. After the major success of Gorder's flat-woven rugs (when she joined forces with Capel in October 2011) the anticipation of her four new collections is significant - and their unveiling, with Genevieve herself in attendance, promises to be a signature moment at this year's Market.
Capel's homage to color and innovation continues in the six new collections from the company's well-loved Capel Braids-American Originals™ line and an outdoor version of the ever-popular woven Hampton collection.
