Adding another powerful name to its steadily growing licensing program, Capel Rugs has forged a new partnership with famed designer Anthony Baratta to develop a new line of exclusive rug designs to be introduced at the October 2017 High Point Market.

“I am thrilled and honored to be partnering with such an iconic, all-American company as Capel Rugs to produce my collection,” said Baratta. “Not only do they have incredible manufacturing capabilities and a flawless reputation for quality, Capel also has the vision and design integrity to create a collection that will truly reflect my aesthetic and stand the test of time.”

Baratta’s initial line for Capel Rugs will include at least four collections covering a range of styles, constructions and price points.

“We’re likely to do some braids, but we’ll also have inventive looks in other types of constructions,” said Cameron Capel, vice-president of national accounts. “Look for this collection to include some unexpected elements, since Tony is known for his clever combinations of materials, colors and textures.”

The new Anthony Baratta program increases the number of licensed collections in Capel Rugs’ line to six. The company also has highly successful programs with Biltmore, Cococozy, Genevieve Gorder, Kevin O’Brien and Williamsburg.
