High Point best sellers include fresh new pinks, updated

HIGH POINT, NC - As the fall 2016 home fashion season draws to a close, design

welcome pop of color appeared in everything from contemporary graphics to
distressed traditional designs and flatweave Mazandaran kilims for fun, feminine
twists to the floor. Dusty pink was even the trend color of the season at the
much-anticipated Kate Spade New York's debuting home furnishings range.
