More than 25 years ago, Biltmore began working with its first licensed partners to develop furnishings and accessories that take inspiration from Biltmore House, America’s largest privately owned home, as well as from a connection to the lifestyle and heritage of the Vanderbilt family who began the estate.

Capel Rugs is one of Biltmore’s longest-running licensing partners, an association that began in 2005 with the reproduction of antique textiles from Biltmore House’s collection. The line of rugs has since evolved to include designs that are inspired by Biltmore’s gardens, architectural details, fine art objects, terrace views and furnishings.

At the Fall High Point Market being held October 22 to 26, Capel Rugs will exhibit in its showroom in Market Square, Space 112.

Drawing upon the iconic style and hospitality for which Biltmore is known, the Licensed Products program offers consumers the opportunity to bring the legacy of gracious living, craftsmanship and the beauty of design into their own homes. To learn more about Biltmore’s licensing division, visit
