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 companion piece to desk or to use on its own
Suzanne from Clarksville, TN – Verified Buyer
I bought the console piece to go in the same room as the matching desk. The drawers are deep and hold a lot. The shelves at the bottom are adjustable and are very deep. It is a heavy quality piece of furniture. Lots of storage. Sturdy, well made and good finish.
Just what I needed!

Sheron Duffy from Bakersfield, CA – Verified Buyer
We received the credenza quickly and in great condition. We are using it in our living room to balance a wall unit on the opposite side of the room. Very satisfied. We are using this room as a reading area, so I have magazines stacked on the shelves.
Very Happy with my purchase
Nikki073104 from Pahrump NV
I had purchased the matching desk, filing cabinet, and book shelf about 5 years ago and was looking for another piece to add to our den. I was very happy to see that they still made this line of furniture. My older pieces are a bit more white. I was surprised that the color is more almond than white but it looks fine in the room that I was putting this in. The quality of this furniture is very good. As I said we have had the other pieces for 5 years and they look just as good as day one. It is really worth what you pay for it.
