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.

I ordered 2 of these book stacks to flank my stone fireplace. They arrived in perfect condition and were fully assembled. They are exactly as described and I couldn't be more pleased. The delivery was a breeze -- they called to let me know they were on the way and arrived 10 minutes later. No hassle at all.
Anne Hoffman from Sterling, VA – Verified Buyer
I wanted something that looked good and had a little bit of style. This fit the bill. I have a ton of diy standard bookcases. This is tall but not too big. Having the doors on the bookcase is a big plus. It let's me hide a lot of clutter. The delivery was fantastic,they called ahead to let me know they were on the way. Now I have a beautiful piece of furniture.

I love this piece of furniture. It had a few inches of finish damage but Wayfair gave a reasonable discount and I am sure it could be touched up quite easily. Other than that, it is beautiful with good workmanship.
Nicer than I expected.
