Home News Capel teams up with Genevieve Gorder for new rug line

TROY, N.C.—Capel Rugs has teamed up with interior designer and HGTV star, Genevieve Gorder, to create a line of soulful, whimsical rugs that will debut at the October High Point Market.

The line features four collections of flat-woven styles that marry Gorder’s design aesthetic with Capel’s signature craftsmanship. The line will encompass a range of classic themes and global inspirations : from indigenous patterns, Morrocan tile work to her own ancestral heirlooms.

“Genevieve finds beauty and inspiration in everyday life and reinterprets those components to create one-of-a-kind designs that are hip and playful,” said Tami Watras, vice president, product and creative director for Capel. “We are extremely excited about our new partnership and the unique decorating opportunities that it offers consumers.”

The new Genevieve Gorder line is an extension of Capel’s New Style Point of View concept which launched in the Fall of 2010. The initiative combines Capel’s classic styling and with creative new designs, colors and collaborations involving today’s most popular designers, according to Watras.

In addition to Gorder’s work on television shows like HGTV’s “Dear Genevieve” and “Design Star,” Gorder was one of the original designers on TLC’s hit TV series, “Trading Spaces.”

“Creating a special room, or a special product, comes down to finding out what it is that really gives you joy,” said Gorder about her approach to design. “Design is emotional, personal and so sensual. For all the homes I can’t visit, I am now so proud to offer a tangible piece of my imagination”

“Well-executed design can have such a positive impact on the way people live, on their relationships and moods,” she added. ”Joining with Capel is an absolute honor. To work with

a brand of enormous integrity and history is a design inspiration in itself”.

Gorder’s work has been featured in many major publications and she has appeared numerous times on “Oprah,” “The Nate Berkus Show”,“The View,” “Today” and CNN. In addition, she writes a monthly column for Parents magazine, where she provides answers to readers’ design dilemmas.

During the High Point Market, Capel will kick off the launch of its new Genevieve Gorder rug line with a cocktail reception for retailers and the media in its showroom from 4 to 6 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 23. Gorder will be in the Capel Rugs showroom on Sunday, Oct. 23 and Monday, Oct. 24.

Capel’s High Point showroom is located at Market Square, Space 112.
