"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, is CEO and Chief Designer of kathy ireland Worldwide® (kiWW®), a design and marketing firm. Forbes Magazine reports kiWW® as a "2 billion dollar business model".

According to Fairchild Publications, the “supermodel turned supermogul” is one of the 50 most influential people in fashion.

Exactly what I ordered!
Joyce from Texas
I am real happy with this bookcase. They delivered it into my house for me, and it wasn't too hard to put together. It is exactly the bookcase I ordered. I'm very happy with it.

These are excellent bookshleves. Well made, solid, ready right out of the box. Definitely would recommend to these. Good value also
Not quite as good as I expected
History Guy from Northeast Missouri
Bookcases look great and are functional but they are nothing more than thicker 90% MDF. Very little "real" wood here. Like most MDF products they will work fine if you do not move them more than once in your lifetime. [...]
Surpassed all expectations
Markus from Kingsport, TN– Verified Buyer
After shopping twelve area furniture stores, and hundreds of similar units online, I ordered this bookcase. Upon arrival (earlier than even hoped), I found this to be superior in quality, beauty, and value to everything else. I've never been more pleased with an online purchase.
Elegant display case for books and decor
Serious senior from Nashville, Tn– Verified Buyer
I purchased 2 84" bookcases. They fit together perfectly and give the study a very elegant feeling.
They smell as good as they look
Doctor Imp from Calgary, AB– Verified Buyer
I frequently go into my office just to revell in the rich woody smell of my seven new bookshelves Makes my little office feel like a Gemtlemen's Club. A perfect companion for my leather book collections. Solidly built. More impressive than I could have imagined!
