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 this unit several years, ago. The color and workmanship are really beautiful. (It is a multimedia unit, so the cddvd units on the sides should not come as a great surprise!) I like the piece so much, that when I decided to remodel my kitchen, I went missionarts&crafts. The picture just does not do it justice. And Wayfair's tech support is the best. We opened it and it was scratched and sent it back for replacement. New one came quickly and was spotless.
Built like a tank!

Pros... -This this is REAL WOOD furniture, not that cheap [*] garbage. Don't gripe about the price and look for something cheaper and then wonder why all your furniture is cardboard.-Other than putting in the inside shelves, little to no assembly required-They already thought to punch two large holes in the back for cable maintenance, one for each shelf-Spacious room on top. It holds my flat screen TV AND my XBOX AND two controllers AND piles of CDs with plenty of room to spare.-It's attractive and stylish-Very sturdy. I can stand on it!Cons...-the real color is a bit darker than shown on the photo-Heavy. You'll probably need a hand truck or two people to move it-It has decorative metal edging on the front door glass that can block remote control signals if you use them at an angle-The side areas that hold the trays for the DVDs are kinda wasted space. You can fit lots more DVDs in these areas other than on the trays.-The trays for the DVDS sometimes jump off their rollers. This can be fixed with a pair of pliars.-[*] is this a dust magnet!The Pros definitely outweigh the cons, however. If you're tired of [...] furniture and want to get real furniture, you won't be disappointed by this.

I was very pleased with the appearance of my TV stand. The color of the finish looks to be true to what I see on my PC monitor. The quality of the construction is excellent. In case you are wondering like I was, I have no problem getting my remote controls to work with my equipment (DVD player and cable box) behind the glass doors.
be aware--shelves are plastic
PR from New York, New YOrk
Nice unit. But be aware that the side door shelves, not mentioned anywhere, are made of cheap plastic and are set up for CD/DVD storage. Who needs that? Not us. We would have liked to know about this but it is not mentioned anywhere in the description. The unit itself is nice and appears well made.[...]
excellent product, very well built
BV from woodland,CA– Verified Buyer
this furniture is very well made, and is mostly assembled. Only needed to screw the doors on. It looks very nice in our setting and even matches a similar bookcase nearby.
this is a nice cabinet
Dave928 from Birmingham, AL– Verified Buyer
This cabinet worked out perfect for my 52" Sharp Aquos TV to sit on top. The mission style looks great with an old house or arts & crafts decor.
I really like this product
