Atlanta -- Capel Rugs is undertaking a comprehensive renovation of its 9,000-square-foot, sixth floor showroom here at AmericasMart.
The company is also extending its lease agreement with the center for another five years. The 90-year-old, family-owned and -operated area and accent rug manufacturer and importer has been an exhibitor at the AmericasMart since 1966 and was the center's first floor coverings showroom.
The revamping has already begun, and Capel plans to move back in December -- in time to prepare for the International Area Rug Market in mid January.
The space -- 6F2 -- is dubbed by the AmericasMart as on of its Area Rug Center’s "premier showrooms." Renowned designer Susan Bradford is charged with the renovation. There will be modern color palettes, innovative lighting, state-of-the art display systems that can accommodate 9-by-12 rugs, and new window displays.
“This renovation provides the perfect showcase for our beautiful rug collections,” said Allen Robertson, Capel vp, sales.
