Capel Generates Strong Business At High Point

Posted on 12:08 pm | 0 comments

Capel Rugs enjoyed a busy High Point Market this month as retailers and designers flocked to its showroom eager to see and buy new rugs to spice up their store assortments. Market winners included Fresh Braids and updated Oushak and Gabbeh patterns. Retailers applauded the new ‘Tradition with a Twist’ designs. Hot new collections included Verve, Carrara, Naturelle, Avery and Gabby. “We had a great market,” said Cameron Capel, president of sales and marketing for Capel Rugs. “We had a steady stream of appointments scheduled every day, and every retailer and designer we expected showed up. The volume of order placements and commitments also was quite strong — matching or exceeding the level of activity we experienced before the pandemic.” “It was so nice to meet with our customers in person again!” Capel added. “Verve sports a mix of funky colors, while Carrara features a vintage erased pattern enlivened with color,” Capel said. “Naturelle is neutral in tone but highly textural, and Avery boasts a laid-back, easy vibe. Gabby combines natural colors with simple designs for a look that is easy to use and layer.” Leading off the hits for Capel this market was Verve, a new hand-knotted collection from India made of 100% wool. The initial introduction features two colors — silver multi and ecru multi — with more colors likely to follow at future markets. Six sizes are available, including 2’6″ x 9′, 3′ x 5′, 5′ x 8′, 9′ x 12′ and 10′ x 14′, and a 5′ x 8′ model may retail for under $1,299. “The Verve collection of updated Oushak patterns lives up to its name,” Capel said. “These fresh, unexpected designs are distinguished by their vitality and liveliness.” Also doing well in High Point was Avery, a new machine made collection in 100% New Zealand wool featuring five patterns with a high level of detail and a vintage, laid-back vibe. The range of earthy, subtle colorways includes stormy gray, stone multi, onyx/cream, slate/linen and merlot. Gabby, a new hand loomed collection made in India of 100% New Zealand wool, also won favor. Simple yet elegant, Gabby’s subtly colored Gabbeh patterns combine abstract geometric designs on open fields of color. Four colorways are available — granite, linen, oatmeal and wheat. Sizes include 2’6″ x 9′, 3′ x 5′, 5′ x 8′, 8′ x 10′, 9′ x 12′ and 10′ x 14′. A 5′ x 8′ rug may retail for under $749. “Gabby’s subtly colored Gabbeh patterns make an understated, refined statement that is perfect for today’s relaxed lifestyles,” Capel said. Carrara, a new hand knotted collection inspired by Renaissance art, was another new design that won favor for Capel Rugs during market. Made in India with a luxurious wool and viscose blend, Carrara features a beautifully distressed finish and earthy colors inspired by mineral pigments. Options include four colorways — multi, beige blue, aqua and charcoal multi — and four sizes. Two new braided collections made in the USA also were in the spotlight in the Capel Rugs showroom at the April market. Scoring particularly well with retailers was Naturelle, an all-natural, undyed 100% wool area rug. “Naturelle is warm, cozy and comfortable, like a favorite cable knit blanket,” Capel said. Also drawing attention was Bambini, a super-soft, 3/8″-pile cotton chenille rug crafted for children’s rooms...

Capel To Debut Wide Assortment At High Point

Posted on 7:58 am | 0 comments

Capel Rugs is rolling out a large assortment of new rugs in the Capel Rugs showroom from April 2 to 6 at the April High Point Market in Market Square, Space 112. The new rugs represent a wide range of constructions, styles and price points and offerings include fresh braids, updated Oushak and Gabbeh patterns and much more. The biggest introduction that Capel has made in recent years, these new rugs are designed to give retailers the stylish, high-value products they need to refresh their floors and drive traffic and business back to stores. “Retailers are hungry for dynamic new rug designs,” said Cameron Capel, president of sales and marketing for Capel Rugs. “Because of the many supply chain challenges brought about by the pandemic, their shelves have become bare. But now that the threat of Covid is waning, they are ready to restock and ramp up their merchandising activity with creative new designs.” Capel Rugs is expecting a busy High Point Market based on the volume of showroom appointments being made in advance of the show and the extra level of effort it has put into this season’s product development. “During the height of the pandemic, a lot of products we had in the pipeline had to be put on hold,” Capel said. “Now, we’re finally able to move these plans forward. As a result, at this market we’ll be showing a wonderfully eclectic mix of rugs, from high-value machine made rugs and elegant hand knots to stylish new braids, updated Oushak patterns and subtle abstracts. There truly will be ‘something for everybody,’ which is welcome news to retailers and designers looking to create excitement for their customers.” Leading off the product parade will be Verve, a new hand-knotted collection from India made of 100% wool. The initial introduction will feature two colors – silver multi and ecru multi – with more colors likely to follow at future markets. Six sizes are available, including 2’6″ x 9′, 3′ x 5′, 5′ x 8′, 9′ x 12′ and 10′ x 14′, and a 5′ x 8′ model may retail for under $1,299. “The Verve collection lives up to its name,” Capel said. “These designs are distinguished by their vitality, energy and liveliness.” “Unexpected accents on understandable fields create a fresh approach for these updated Oushak patterns,” she added. Also on tap for introduction in High Point is Gabby, a new hand loomed collection made in India of 100% New Zealand wool. Simple yet elegant, Gabby’s subtly colored Gabbeh patterns combine abstract geometric designs on open fields of color. Four colorways are available — granite, linen, oatmeal and wheat. Sizes include 2’6″ x 9′, 3′ x 5′, 5′ x 8′, 8′ x 10′, 9′ x 12′ and 10′ x 14′. A 5′ x 8′ rug may retail for under $729. “Both understated and refined, Gabby’s subtly colored Gabbeh patterns tell their story with only a few key elements,” Capel said. Another new collection expected to generate attention in High Point is Camille. Hand tufted in India using 100% wool loop pile yarns, Camille features four color ways – moss, pewter, icy blue and flax – with two classic motifs, including damask and quatrefoil designs. “Each versatile pattern exudes tranquility as well as sophistication,” Capel said. Camille is available in 2’6″ x...
