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.

Beautiful Computer Desk
Psquare from Aiken, SC– Verified Buyer
This is a beautiful, well constructed computer desk. It has lots of storage space with a locking file cabinet. I love the power supply built into the unit and the extra plug in it provides. The color is much darker than I thought -- it is a dark distressed cherry color. It is made with a good grade of a wood and it is heavy. I put furniture felt pads all around the base of the desk to make it easier to move over the hardwood floor. I also purchased a piece of man-made Corian countertop material and put on the top to blend it in with my entertainment wall unit and kitchen countertops to give my rooms a little more unity. Plus the top protects it from scratches and fingerprints. This desk is worth about $4000 if I purchased it in Aiken, SC. You will not be disappointed at the sound structure and beautiful details of this desk. I posted a picture of me at the desk on my FB page and everyone was asking me where did I get that nice desk. I highly recommend it to my everyone who wants a professional executive style looking computer desk.

Desk has plenty of room for just about everything ,I like also the electric outet connection for my for I phone I pad. Thanks again Ed Zuniga
Over all a very nice desk
Michael from Elk Grove, CA– Verified Buyer
The desk has a solid look to it, but it has a strong odor, it needs another cable organizer behind the power strip and the CPU nook was not finished very well at the back. I do like the construction of the drawers and thye minimal amount of distressing. Again I like the look and over all functionality of the piece.
Product fits my needs;would buy again.
Linda from West Springfield, MA– Verified Buyer
Desk is for my personal use; especially like the spacious desktop which easily fits a computer printer, monitor, speakers, desk organizer, & has lots of space left for writing or doing paperwork.
Lovely and functional!
Mrs Hodges from West Texas
My desk is everything I could have wanted. Beautiful, top quality, and functional. I like the design which allows for all the computer wires to be easily hidden and so that they are exactly where they are needed. The delivery was seamless and they set up everything for me - we didn't have to assemble!
