"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.

kathy ireland Home by Martin Furniture Tribeca Loft - Lower Door 70" Bookcase
Love this bookcase
Teresa from New Roads, LA– Verified Buyer
Product matches picture. It comes already assembled, but in a crate, not a box. Had to borrow a crowbar to get it open, so be prepared if you do not purchase the unpack-option! After it was out of the box, It took a minute to understand the packing screws. You take the 4 screws out and then gently pop out the little brackets. Then put the bookcase in place, wipe clean and set up the shelves.

K from CA– Verified Buyer
I am very happy with this bookcase. It is working out very well for me. The size and the quality are both great and everything I was expecting.
Great for our needs!
Matthew from Indianapolis, IN– Verified Buyer
Great fit for our needs! The limited space made this book shelf a great option. Got it home, and the measurements were true. Fit perfectly where it was intended to go.
Sara Fryar from Eden Prairie, MN– Verified Buyer
Exactly as I expected, very good quality. The room of choice service was totally worth it too. I do plan to attach it to the wall with the anti-tip bracket that was included- the bookcase is pretty narrow for how tall it is.
Nice shelf with solid construction
Amanda from NJ– Verified Buyer
Only wish it was actually white rather than the antique white color that it is. Its not worth returning it, but puts a wrench in our plans for true white accents when the large bookcase is not true white.
Keith from North Carolina– Verified Buyer
The cabinets look nice but they are a little bit flimsy. They arrived with no damage even though the packaging was not very robust. The cabinets took a long time to arrive.
M&Ms Mom from Oshkosh, WI– Verified Buyer
I use the unit for hiding kids toys and books so the living room doesn't look like a playroom.
Great bookcase for a small space
Maria from Arizona– Verified Buyer
Great bookcase with upper storage for display and closed storage below. Narrow size perfectly fits the space where I wanted a bookcase.
