"I can't remember a time when design wasn't a major influence in my life. Nature is my greatest inspiration. I began sketching before learning math and reciting the alphabet. When I was about 8 years old, my mother designed halter dresses that we would bring to craft shows, and I was allowed the opportunity of designing handbags and jewelry to enhance the outfits. My first sale was very precious. Being compensated as a designer was and continues to be a delight. Whenever I experience something that our firm designed being worn or living in a client's home, the thrill never lessens. Modeling was never on my radar. I wanted to be the client! My fashion career exposed me to the globe and some of the most talented people in the world. Vera Wang was responsible for me working at Vogue; Scavullo photographed my Cosmopolitan cover, Herb Ritts, Bruce Weber, Avedon---all taught me so much. Fendi, Ralph Lauren and Calvin Klein were all companies that I worked for. My greatest mentors in life and fashion include my Mother, Barbara, who has exquisite taste, my Father, John who taught me the economics of fashion and economic realities of retail. It can be ugly, when people aren't honest... Jule Campbell from Sports Illustrated and Elizabeth Taylor continue to be true blessings in my life. Elizabeth took me by the hand and demanded that I express myself in a bolder, more powerful way. 'Beige is not the inner you. People will take you seriously even when you're designing something wonderful, feminine and sexy. You can also wear it! I miss and treasure Elizabeth every day,' " explained Kathy Ireland about her passion for design that launched, kathy ireland® Worldwide.

We were pleased with this piece of furniture. The color is actually pretty dark, which is exactly what we were hoping for. It appears well made. A very classic and clean lined piece that I'm sure we will have for a very long time.
Exactly what I was looking for
Jessica Arnold from Boston, MA– Verified Buyer– Top 100 Reviewer
I was looking for a combination bookshelf and media stand that would be large enough to hold a number of items but also a decent size tv and this is the perfect piece. It is quite large so make sure you measure correctly! It arrived with no damage whatsover and the delivery men brought it in for me and set it up with no issues. The middle filing cabinets are adjustable enough that you can just use them for storage for tall items or as a combo filing cabinetstorage drawer. I have it in my bedroom with a tv on top and it works perfectly! So happy

DEEP CHERRY COLOR
Maw Maw from Florida– Verified Buyer
Well constructed and very functional. The only ctritcism would be the cherry color of the picture presented is very much lighter than the actual product. Actual cherry is very, very deep cherry more closely resembling "black cherry" in color.
