Capel Rugs To Introduce Value Priced Chobi Reproductions In Atlanta

Furniture World News on

Capel Rugs announced that it will unveil its Classic Chobi collection at the Atlanta International Home Furnishings Market, Jan. 7-12. Capel is the first rug manufacturer to offer machine made duplicates of high quality Chobi hand knots from Afghanistan and Pakistan. Classic Chobi's outstanding quality and value is thanks to a new unique solution dye system, where polyester blend yarn is designed to replicate wool. The Atlanta debut also includes an eclectic collection of new, soft modern looks being added to Capel's stable of traditional offerings. Executives say they are responding to a growing trend in the market. "We've seen a lot of interest in the transitional category this winter, signifying the growing appeal of the urban lifestyle across the country," said Allen Robertson, Capel's Vice President of Sales. "Not only are more consumers trending toward value, they are streamlining their lifestyle and matching it with simple and minimalist looks." New soft modern collections include Urban Chic as well as new design offerings in the Tempo collection, which has been named by the National Rug Council as a "Best Buy" for style and quality. Tribal designs abound with the new Cheyenne collection that reveals a clean styling that is both simple and dramatic. Another collection, Palm Grove, is already a hot seller and is gaining popularity for its trendy herringbone design and indoor-outdoor versatility. Palm Grove exemplifies a young modern look that is popular with fashion-forward boutique retailers. The Capel showroom, located at Merchandise Mart, Space 6F2, will display a broad selection from Capel's extensive program, including popular licensee collections, the Capel Braids - American Originals™ line, the Capel Anywhere™ line of indoor-outdoor floor coverings and much more.
