Shares Camplin, “We’re enormously proud and excited to unveil the Kate Spade New York home furnishings collection at High Point Market with Hearst Design Group and the top influencers in the business. Two years in the making, the collection tells the story of an interesting life well-lived. The pieces reflect traditional and modern influences, but with an iconic Kate Spade New York twist, like dots, subtle bows and sophisticated pops of color. This is only the beginning for Kate Spade New York Home. We’re here to stay.”
