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 bought 2 of these. I have just received them last week and I am waiting for some friends to put Custer wheels to be able to move them without problems once they are fill up. They come practically assembled. The only thing that I needed to adjust was the inside handles because I am using legal size hanging files. Very nice looking. Good quality and I hope it can hold all my hanging folders. Nice filing cabinets.
Roomy lateral files
Betty from Little Elm, TX– Verified Buyer
I bought the desk with the hutch, along with two of these file cabinets and two hutches from the peninsula wall unit to create my office suite. Wow - I am so pleased with my purchase. Pictures do not do this furniture justice. So much nicer looking in real life. I spent a lot of time reading reviews from all over the net on this particular line of furniture and everywhere gave it great reviews. Now I know why. The delivery was an easy and smooth process. The lateral file drawers hold a lot of files and appear to be very well made.

nice file cabinet
Ray from Fairview, PA– Verified Buyer
After unpacking the file cabinet which was packaged very well, I am pleased with my purchase. The cabinet itself is constructed well and should last. I'm only giving it four stars because the finish could have been better....it is not terrible but its not perfect. Overall it is a very nice file cabinet for the money.
Nice file drawer, looks great
arlene from Irvine, CA– Verified Buyer
This comes fully assembled (a great PLUS!) and is very well made, sturdy and nice looking. Please be aware that the files sit long-ways in the drawer. If required, you could make it 2 rows (front to back) per drawer but it would need modification - ie, cutting the bars, dado cuts in the drawer - but that would be extra work for you as it's not set up that way.
Nice piece of furniture
Denise from Mechanicsburg, PA
I wanted a file cabinet that looked more like furniture than traditional filing cabinets. This fits the bill perfectly.
Beautiful! Files sideways only.
Your Pal Hal from Staten Island, NY– Verified Buyer
Beautiful file cabinet; smooth, strong drawers; excellent price; [...].I didn't realize that files could only go in a single sideways arrangement. I had expected to have two front-to-back rows as I had in the file cabinet this one replaced. After my initial disappointment, I find that I don't mind this at all. I may even prefer it--no more files hard to reach in the back. All the files from my old file cabinet fit in this one just fine, but I guess I'd hoped for a bit more space. I wasn't necessarily counting on it, but as the dimensions were slightly larger, I had hoped.Still, I give it 5 stars.
Nice but Description and Picture are not Accurate
Adam from United States– Verified Buyer
It's a well built unit and looks nice overall but the finish is much darker and more red than the picture and description detail. Doesn't match my existing furniture as well as I would have liked.
Mission Pasadena Lateral File Base
Raymond from Castle Pines, CO– Verified Buyer
Nice fit and finish. Matches desk and provides surface for larger printer that would not fit in pull-out on credenza.
