The series will preview the three Spring 2020 TrendWatch trends – MEADOW, AVIARY and PENTHOUSE – through a live online presentation and “flip-books” showcasing products reflective of each theme. “In a time of social distancing, IMC is finding new ways to present relevant and compelling content to our buyers and suppliers,” said Dorothy Belshaw, executive vice president, chief marketing and digital officer for International Market Centers. “This virtual showcase of colors, patterns and motifs that will influence future sales and consumer preferences will help our customers stay informed on product trends and position for business recovery.” Below is a brief description of each trend as well as its respective webinar date and time. To register for the webinar, please visit: http://www.imchighpointmarket.com/trendwatch MEADOW – April 29 at 1 PM EST (0.5 CEU) Small-scale florals, warm neutrals and hand-crafted embellishments thrive in TrendWatch’s MEADOW, a serene space that evokes prairieland dotted with wildflowers. The mood is quaint and romantic yet travels effortlessly to a metropolitan landscape. In MEADOW, we connect with nature — and the picturesque posts we upload seem to validate our effort. AVIARY – May 13 at 1 PM EST (0.5 CEU) TrendWatch’s color and pattern presentation for Spring 2020 celebrates avian motifs and patterns inspired by nature’s most colorful creatures. Artful abstracts that recall the works of modern masters nestle with feathery themes and designs. Greens, blues and incoming reds are hue headliners. PENTHOUSE – May 27 at 1 PM EST (0.5 CEU) The decade opens with renewed interest in neutrals, especially luxurious interpretations that emphasize finishing and form, so sparkle and shine meet sophisticated curation in TrendWatch’s PENTHOUSE. TrendWatch is curated by 24-year magazine editor and home furnishings trends forecaster Julie Smith Vincenti of Nine Muses Media. “TrendWatch opens the decade with trends that highlight new hues, patterns and inspirations, and also builds on themes from past seasons,” explains Smith Vincenti. “MEADOW, for example, draws on incoming cottage-inspired florals and warm and cool hues, while at the same time serving as a blueprint for refreshing Hygge interiors. AVIARY is rooted in established tropical moods and maximalist tendencies, but it serves up fresh patterns that allow the designer and consumer to bring bold colors into interiors. Lastly, PENTHOUSE explores big city living with right-sized furnishings that emphasize form, as much as material and color.” As an added benefit, a free digital “flip-book” highlighting each trend and corresponding IMC exhibitor product selections will be available following each webinar at...

Capel Reports Strong Response To Traditional Designs At Vegas

Posted on 5:50 pm | 0 comments

Capel Rugs enjoyed an especially busy Winter Las Vegas Market as a number of large retail chains and major independents actively shopped the line for fresh looks to spice up their floors. Alongside these retailers was the contingent of smaller merchants and independent designers that regularly visit the rug source’s popular showroom in the World Market Center’s Building A. “Our traffic was even with last winter’s Vegas market, but the level of activity seemed much busier and the amount of orders placed was ahead of 2019!” said Cameron Capel, president – sales and marketing for Capel Rugs. “Business has generally been good for retailers in the West and other regions, and there’s a lot of optimism about the prospects for growth in 2020. As a result, retailers are hungry for dynamic new designs and strong values that can generate excitement and attract shoppers.” Leading the way for Capel Rugs this market was Charise, an upscale, hand knotted traditional collection from India that features classic motifs updated for today’s lifestyles. The 100% wool rugs are available in eight patterns and color ways: Isfahan in sand, Kazak in blue multi, Keshan in champagne, Mahal in dark chocolate, Peshawar in slate ruby, Tabriz in fog blue, Ushak in scarlet and Ziegler in terra cotta. The elegant collection comes in 3’ x 5’, 5’ x 8’, 8’ x 10’ and 9’ x 12’ sizes. A 5’ x 8’ rug may retail for under $1,199. “Everyone loved the Charise collection,” Capel said. “It’s a well-priced, hand knotted design with a range of timeless designs that fits in easily with a variety of different décor.” Also doing well at the Jan. 26-30 Las Vegas Market were seven new styles added to the popular Avanti collection. A hand tufted, all-wool design from India, Avanti’s new patterns include Eleanor, in ice blue; Kazak, in slate terra; Keshan, in red/navy; Medallion, in ivory/denim; Oushak, in natural/multi; Panel in greystone; and Wyman, in ink. This collection, which features a loop pile construction, is available in 3’6” x 5’6”, 5’x 8’, 8’ x 10’, 9’ x 12’ and 10’ x 14’ sizes, as well as a 2’6” x 8’ runner. A 5’ x 8’ rug may retail for under $339. “The new patterns we’ve added this season take the collection in a slightly more traditional direction but with very on-trend, up-to-date colors,” Capel said. “The new Avanti designs offer a high level of quality at a great price, and they are set to begin shipping next month.” Also placing well at market was Bayview, a contemporary, made in the U.S. braided collection expanded with two new colorways — metal and lambswool. This best-selling design is constructed of wool, nylon and polyester and features a luxe, subtly textured, 5/8-inch-high pile inspired by the soothing, gently rippling currents of water. Available in a wide range of cross-sewn rectangle and oval/round shapes, Bayview also is offered in five other colorways – sage, granite, twilight blue, cinnabar and neutral. At the Las Vegas Market, Capel Rugs also debuted new colors for two other popular collections – Makrana and Hammock. Makrana, a distressed, hand knotted traditional pattern in wool and viscose, is now available in sage and mineral blue.
