Capel Rugs’ best-received new import designs at the summer markets included two sharply priced machine made collections in 100% New Zealand wool. Tribute, an addition to the popular Biltmore® For Your Home collection, takes inspiration from the legendary estate’s legacy of gathering and gracious living. Lineage, Capel Rugs’ other new machine made wool collection, features four traditional-leaning designs, including two geometrics, in four contemporized colorways, with a dense, detailed texture.

“Since Metropolis, a sharply priced Wilton-woven collection of transitional and traditional designs in 100% New Zealand wool that we introduced in 2017, has been so successful, we wanted to expand our assortment in this category,” Capel said. “The success of Metropolis gives buyers a lot of confidence that these two new machine made collections also will be strong sellers in their scapeltores.”
In both Atlanta and Las Vegas, Capel introduced new rugs across a variety of price points, styles and constructions that proved to be big hits with buyers, Capel said. Strong performers on the import side of the company’s line included luxurious traditional hand knots, artfully abstract machine mades and a new collection of contemporary rugs made from recycled PET polyester yarns.
