Capel teams with Sunbrella for outdoor rug collection
Casual Living Staff -- Casual Living, July 15, 2005
Troy, N.C.-based Capel Incorporated has partnered with Sunbrella fabrics for a line of indoor/outdoor rugs called South Beach. During the Atlanta International Rug Show this month, Capel also will launch two other collections for outdoor/indoor, one of the 88-year-old company's fastest growing rug categories.
"This year, we have added some fantastic rugs to our collections that dealers won't want to miss," said Allen Robertson, vice president and national sales manager.
South Beach was first shown at the April International Home Furnishings Market in High Point, N.C., in two styles — Stripes and Canvas. The Canvas design features a solid Sunbrella fabric border available in five colors, while Stripes incorporates a bright-striped border in four summer colors. Both styles are made with a 100% olefin woven center that is sunlight resistant, quick drying, lightweight and comfortable underfoot.
Seabreeze is a new outdoor/indoor collection with a 100% olefin construction and tailored design that works well indoors or out. Woven in Belgium on a sisal-look loom, the collection includes six rugs in tiled and checkered patterns and rustic colorways from brick red to oatmeal.
The Al Fresco rug collection features Southwestern motifs and is available in three styles and several colors.
The Capel showroom in Atlanta is located in space 6F2 at the Merchandise Mart. For more information, visit www.capelrugs.com.
