     By Lissa Wyman

    HIGH POINT -- The smiles at this week's High Point Market seemed genuine, not forced, as rug and home furnishings retailers entered the fourth quarter on a strong note.  The most striking aspects of the market were bold colors, a move away from the bottom part of the price spectrum and continued dominance of contemporary and transitional design. And pillows. THOUSANDS of pillows.  In general, High Point was filled excitement, energy and optimism. There was little or no talk about the recent  government shut-down  and debt crisis, just clear focus on the year to come.
