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.

Great TV console
Maurice from Camp Hill, PA – Verified Buyer
The Mission Pasadena is a very nice unit. My wife wanted the wires, and there were many, removed from the floor behind the old TV stand. Well this console did the trick and I am now back in the wife's good graces. No more wires all over the place. I shopped price on this console for many months when I came across Wayfair who had a good sale price + 10% first purchase discount. Their price the best I found. Thanks wayfair and Kathy Ireland for saving me from the wife's ire....
Good Quality, Great Looking TV Stand
Dean from Alexandria, VA – Verified Buyer
We bought this stand for a 58" plasma TV and the size is perfect. Pros: - Nice looking - Seems sturdy and high quality - Cabinets have plenty of room for A/V components. I stuffed in a DVD player, Blu-ray player, stereo receiver, CD player, tape deck, video game console and still had spare room for storage of other items. - Back panels come out easily for initial hookup and wiring of components. Flip-up panel on top makes it easy to get to at least some of the connections. Cons: - The color was distinctly darker than the picture shown on the web. Picture makes it look like a light-wood tone. The one we received is a darker tone. I didn't see an array of wood tones offered for this model on the web site, so I'm guessing this is the only shade it comes in. - Only comes with two adjustable shelves, one for each cabinet. Would be nice to have a couple of additional shelves. - Depending on how your TV sits on its base, it may sit on top of the flip-up panel on the top of the stand, meaning you won't be able to open the top panel with your TV sitting centered on top of the stand. Therefore, using the flip-up panel will require you to slide your TV forward to get access. Not a big hassle it you are not going to need access to the wiring of components frequently.

My husband and I are very impressed with this TV stand. It is well-built and sturdy. It came fully assembled and is solidly constructed.
