Two new collections of high-value, machine made wool rugs with an upscale look and feel topped the list of well-received introductions in the Capel Rugs showroom at the April 6-10 High Point Market.
Leading the way was the Tribute collection, a new addition to the Biltmore For Your Home line that includes two machine made designs, Bazaar and Parlor, in 100% New Zealand wool and available in a total of four creative colorways.
"The Tribute collection was inspired by actual rugs at Biltmore, with the colors updated to fit the styles of today's market," said Cameron Capel, president of sales and marketing for Capel Rugs. "Both designs reflect the rich heritage of Biltmore, capturing the warm spirit of family and friends for which the Vanderbilt family has long been famous."
Also doing well at market was Lineage, a new collection for the Capel Rugs line that features the same type of machine-made construction and 100% New Zealand wool composition as the Tribute collection. Available in a total of four colorways, Lineage includes four traditional-leaning designs.
"The new Tribute and Lineage collections both offer retailers a fashionable step-up product, with beautiful details and colors, at a very affordable price point," said Capel.
Other new licensed designs finding favor in the Capel Rugs showroom during market included Clayton, a hand tufted, block print-inspired 100% wool design with zero pile added to the Williamsburg line. Three new collections recently added to the Genevieve Gorder line also made their debut in High Point—Brass Belly, a timeless Art Nouveau design featuring rows of overlapping scallop shapes in three on-trend colorways; Intersection, a bold geometric design in hand tufted 100% wool with three colorways; and Canyon, a colorful nature-inspired pattern in tufted wool with a contemporary flair.
