Style and function celebrated in holiday catalogs

New York – The practical and fashionable are highlighted among home textiles in the holiday catalogs from retailers ranging from home furnishings specialists to department stores, to apparel-driven companies with some home involvement.

This year there is less emphasis on the exotic and more on practicality, as typified in the offerings of insulated curtains and flannel sheets from a variety of retailers.

One interesting sign of the times is the frequency of free shipping offers.
