Dalton, Ga. – Karastan donated one of its popular Plum Blossom rugs from its Studio By Karastan Artworks collection to the seventh annual Design Cares charity silent auction.
The holiday soiree, held Dec. 9 and sponsored by Metropolitan Home and the New York Design Center, helped raise more than $25,000 to benefit Partnership for the Homeless and its Furnish a Future program.
Karastan’s 5-by-8 area rug donation was among several other luxury home furnishings pieces donated to the cause, including items from Donna Karan Home, Knoll and W Hotels.
“We were honored to participate in such a worthy event,” said Connie Berry, director of marketing for Karastan. “It gives us a chance to give back and to join with other high-design companies to make a difference that can positively impact a community.”
