Capel To Host Meet & Greet COCOCOZY Event During High Point

COCOCOZY Designer Coco Holding Market ‘Meet and Greet’ in Capel Rugs Showroom POPULAR DESIGNER, BLOGGER LAUNCHING NEW CUSTOM RUG PROGRAM AT HIGH POINT MARKET TROY, N.C. — Home furnishings designer and blogger Coco will make a special appearance in the Capel Rugs showroom from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday, October 23, to launch the latest additions to her popular COCOCOZY collection of fashion-forward rugs. New additions to Capel’s COCOCOZY line include a major new custom rug collection called Color Block. In addition, COCOCOZY is introducing a new machine woven design in four color ways called Finesse Tower Court and two hand tufted designs called Glace and River. Known for sharing effortlessly cool interiors on her blog, COCOCOZY, Coco translated her unique graphic design aesthetic into her first rug collection for Capel in 2013. Ranging from the bold to the demure, Coco defines her aesthetic as “a living, breathing style that is open to new ideas and new concepts — always.” A Los Angeles native, Coco leads a double life: an executive by day and an interior design blogger and home furnishings designer by night. When Coco began blogging in 2008, her goal was simple: to provide design and style inspiration with a personal and sometimes humorous approach. Little did she know her COCOCOZY blog would become so popular. In addition to the thousands who come to her blog on a daily basis, pop star Katy Perry and interior design guru Jonathan Adler both named COCOCOZY as one of their favorite interior design blogs in InStyle magazine. In January of 2011, less than three years after the launch of the blog, Coco took her passion one step further as she introduced the COCOCOZY textiles collection to the home furnishings market. Today, in addition to rugs, the collection features luxury pillows, throws, bedding and accessories all designed by Coco and manufactured (all or partially) in the United...

Capel To Expand High Profile Licensing Programs At High Point

Capel Rugs is making major expansions to two high-profile licensing programs at the October 22-26 High Point Market. The company’s introductions include a new custom-design collection being added to the COCOCOZY program as well as three new collections for the Biltmore® line. In addition, Capel Rugs is expanding its flagship line with two new braided designs. The new collections can be seen in Capel’s showroom at Market Square, Space 112. The COCOCOZY line, first introduced in 2013, is adding a new Color Block collection this market that will enable consumers to mix and match up to three colors from a palette of 12 choices, including light green, navy, black and gray. Hand loomed in India of wool, the contemporary-leaning heathered design will ship to the U.S. in 90 days from the time of order. The new Color Block rugs can be ordered in any size up to 15’ x 20’. “We’re taking a high-end, textured look that typically costs thousands of dollars and bringing it to the masses at a much more affordable price,” said Cameron Capel, vice president of national accounts for Capel Rugs. A typical pattern in the new Color Block program is designed to retail for $699 or lower for a 5’ x 8’ size. “Consumers can pick the colors that are just right for them. It’s a very elegant design in a palette of warm, soothing tones that’s right on trend with what’s happening in the market.” In addition to Color Block, the COCOCOZY collection also is adding a new machine woven design called Finesse Tower Court, and two hand tufted designs called Glace and River.  Finesse Tower Court is inspired by one of Coco’s best-selling designs from her textile line and is available in four color ways — Charcoal, Spa, Capri Blue and Barley. A transitional, hand tufted design, Glace is made of a wool and viscose blend and comes in four color ways — black cream, silver grey, crystal blue maize and garnet cream. “This rug ties in very nicely with Coco’s pillows and throws,” said Capel. “We previewed it with our salespeople prior to market and everyone agreed that this new design will be a big hit.” For Capel Rugs’ Biltmore® collection, which is marking its 11th anniversary this year, three new collections will debut this market, bringing the line’s total number of collections to 15. “We can’t wait to share this latest round of classic Biltmore designs with our customers,” said Capel. “Working with our friends at Biltmore, we’ve created an attractive assortment of beautiful designs inspired by elements throughout the estate as well as direct replicas from actual rugs in the...
