About the Designer
"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.

Perfect Desk for my Apartment
Hillary from Naples, FL – Verified Buyer
I had been looking for a new desk for our apartment since December 2014. Mostly online...looking and looking and all I found was assembly needed, poor quality, no drawers, etc. Finally, in June 2015, I found this Tribeca Loft Desk on Wayfair! It is the perfect size for us, it has 4 drawers, so at least we have some storage. I love the color, it is a cream color, it is NOT pure white. It was already assembled, it came in a huge box and was very well packed...so no damage, NOT even one scratch. The delivery guys were very efficient...called me 20 minutes before arriving, found my apartment right away, were very friendly and knew what they were doing. They had my new desk all set up within a half hour. And I LOVE IT! Pros: Already assembled except for the four handles had to be screwed on. Cons: NONE!
Exactly what I wanted
Nancy from Camden, AR – Verified Buyer
This is a beautiful desk and very well made. It came all assembled and the delivery included unpacking and placing it in my home where I wanted it. It's shorter than the desks I'm used to using so I have to get used to it but I love it and I love the drawers. The top drawer has two movable dividers too. The file drawer has built in sliders for letter sized hanging folders. I had a glass top made for it so it wouldn't get damaged. The color is soft while and brushed aluminum handles. Very pretty.
love this desk
Salene from OGDENSBURG, NY – Verified Buyer
the quality is very good, very solid desk. I also love the color and the hardware used, beautiful. the top draw fits my keyboard and mouse nicely, like that when not in use, keyboard are out of sight and I have the whole desk surface to work at. I can't really think of anything I don't like. finish is great, and draws slide very well. I recommend it.

A beautiful desk. It's a real piece of furniture. I needed to get a glass top made for it (My cat is a computer geek). The sizing is not exactly as described. The glass needed to be re-cut but I'm very pleased with this desk.
Kriston from San Diego, CA – Verified Buyer
This desk was the perfect size for me. I wanted a more feminine desk and this was it. The only negative thing is that the back of the desk is unfinished. I was not planning on having the desk up against the wall but now I have to.
sheena from Dyer, IN – Verified Buyer
Comes well crated. Have a crowbar and some help. My only problem is the overwhelming chemical smell of the wood.. you will need a few days with the furniture in the garage to degas.
Gloria from Southern Pines, NC – Verified Buyer
This is a very well made desk and perfect for a small area. Color is as shown, not a bright white but a pretty off white. I paid extra fee for in home delivery and it was well worth it. Delivery men were very polite and helpful. I would definately order from Wayfair again.
Cynthia from Miramar Beach, FL – Verified Buyer
This is a wonderful white writing desk with a large pullout tray for the keyboard and mouse. I wanted one with storage so this one is perfect. The size is perfect too! Love this desk!
