Capel is gearing up for an exciting Spring launch at High Point. Genevieve Gorder will be in the Capel showroom on Sunday, April 21st. Please let us know if you would like to come by to see her and we can book a showroom tour.
They also have new photography of product that has never been seen at High Point. Capel has a ton of new offerings but here are the highlights:
Gothic architecture is the inspiration for the delicate designs in the Tracery collection. The fine lines of these patterns evoke the stonework that gave style and substance to Gothic cathedral windows.
Four spa-toned colorways – mint, pale gray, bisque and charcoal – feature complex, tone-on-tone tracings in either a circular- or square-based pattern. Tracery is hand tufted in India of 70 percent wool and 30 percent viscose. Sizes start at 3’ x 5’ and run to 9’ x 13’. A 5’ x 8’ rug may retail for $639.
Capel marries ancient patterns with modern comfort in Kasbah, a collection of luxurious, hand-knotted rugs. Heavily influenced by North African architecture, Kasbah features designs with graphic lines and Moorish arches.
Three patterns – diamond, star and cube – are laid over solid brown, aqua and natural colorways. Kasbah is hand-knotted in India of 100 percent wool, at 22 knots per square inch. Its high pile and plush hand reinforce the luxurious nature. Four sizes are available starting at 3’ x 5’ up to 8’ x 11’. A 5’ x 8’ rug may retail for $1199.
The botanical patterns in Capel’s new Villandry collection recall the intricately designed kitchen gardens of 16th century France. These precisely planted vegetables and flowers appeared as if embroidered when viewed from above. The same intricate, thoughtful design can be seen in Capel’s adaptation of the multi-colored, open-work patterns.
Spa, cream, espresso and spice colorways serve as a backdrop for warm, multi-colored patterns. Sizes range from 3’ x 5’ to 9’ x 13’ and display tremendous value for the work involved in a hand-tufted rug. A 5’ x 8’ rug may retail for $539. Villandry is hand-tufted of 100 percent wool in India.
