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.

Met My Storage Needs
Angie from Willow Creek, CA– Verified Buyer
I was looking for something attractive but not to pricey to store my stuff i.e. books, knitting needles, beads, other craft stuff etc. and this works well.
Wilma from Corpus Christi, TX– Verified Buyer
This book case replaced a built in . It looks very high end. I wanted a bookcase with doors to add storage. This fit the bill perfectly! Not shabby at all and it arrived in perfect condition!
Great buy. Stunning look.
phil from Kennewick, WA– Verified Buyer
W e bought three of these to have a wall bookcase look. High quality bookcases. Fortunately. We had two workers here who uncreated them and brought them in the house to set up. They did a little shimming to make sure the cases were level and right next to each other. Uncrating was a project, so unless you've got some good help, pay the unpacking and set up fee. We get great compliments on the bookcases.
Hides all my stuff...
Susan from Toms River, NJ– Verified Buyer
This bookcase allows me to display my family picture frames and other family treasures while storing things I need but don't necessary want seen. A beautiful addition to my family room. Not a big piece which makes it perfect for a smaller sized area. I am very pleased with this purchase
Lovin' our new home office! from Richmond, VA
Great, high-quality product. We bought 3 of these to create a "bookcase wall" for our home office, and they look stunning.
Better than Expected
Grammie of 5 from Anaheim, CA
Fits perfectly with the matching console on a 87" wall by my fireplace. Very pleased with this purchase. Arrived partially assembled, only had to put in shelves and screw on door handles.
