Capel Transforms Historic Pattern for Thailand Outdoor Collection

Furniture World News


Capel reported that it will introduce the new Thailand Outdoor Collection at the upcoming Las Vegas Market. Debuting with three designs, Thailand carries out a modern vibe on the traditional ikat and lotus themes.

“We’ve reworked what are typically richly-hued fabrics in lighter, casual patterns and colors, just right for outdoor spaces,” says Tami Watras, vice president-product and creative director for Capel Rugs.

Wilton Woven of 100 percent olefin in Belgium, Thailand incorporates relaxing and muted tones of washed khaki, weathered gray and weathered chambray. While made to endure exterior conditions, they are soft enough for indoor use and are available in 3’11” by 5’6” to 7’10” by 11’.

Additional  introductions from Capel include:

Williamsburg Debut: “Consumers want to see new and current,” says Watras. “We’ve taken an archived needlepoint upholstery covering found in the Williamsburg home of John D. Rockefeller and stylishly conveyed the historical sense by moving this design into a contemporary realm by playing with scale and color.”  The classic pattern gets a makeover with an airy design, lightened colors and soft, 100 percent, hand-tufted wool. The Bowden Scallop rug is available in four colorways (bamboo, blue bell, parchment and spice) in sizes ranging from 5’ by 8’ to 8’ by 11’.
