Capel Rugs announced it is hosting a "Coffee and Cocktails with COCO" event from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. on Sunday, October 17 during the High Point Market featuring Colette Shelton, commonly known as "COCO" from COCOCOZY. Capel Rugs shows during the High Point Market in Market Square, space 112.

An entrepreneur, design blogger and home furnishings designer, COCO is one of Forbes Magazine's Top 30 Influencers. She also stars in and executive produces the "COCO Design House" series currently streaming on Amazon Prime Video and Roku. This short-form, docu-design series chronicles COCO's renovation of a stately California Spanish-style home.

COCO also has been featured in numerous online and print publications, including House Beautiful, Architectural Digest, Lonny, Domino, Rue and My Domaine. In 2013, she launched a rug collection for Capel Rugs, and her licensed COCOCOZY collection of home furnishings has grown over time to include luxury pillows, throws, bedding, drapery and home accents.

"We are so excited that COCO will be able to join us during market as we launch an exciting assortment of new rug designs for the COCOCOZY collection," said Cameron Capel, president -- sales and marketing for Capel Rugs. "We invite all our dealers and designers to come to the showroom and meet COCO while enjoying a cup of coffee or a celebratory morning cocktail!"
