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.

love this desk
Salene from OGDENSBURG, NY – Verified Buyer
the quality is very good, very solid desk. I also love the color and the hardware used, beautiful. the top draw fits my keyboard and mouse nicely, like that when not in use, keyboard are out of sight and I have the whole desk surface to work at. I can't really think of anything I don't like. finish is great, and draws slide very well. I recommend it.
Exactly what I wanted
Nancy from Camden, AR – Verified Buyer
This is a beautiful desk and very well made. It came all assembled and the delivery included unpacking and placing it in my home where I wanted it. It's shorter than the desks I'm used to using so I have to get used to it but I love it and I love the drawers. The top drawer has two movable dividers too. The file drawer has built in sliders for letter sized hanging folders. I had a glass top made for it so it wouldn't get damaged. The color is soft while and brushed aluminum handles. Very pretty.
Gloria from Southern Pines, NC – Verified Buyer
This is a very well made desk and perfect for a small area. Color is as shown, not a bright white but a pretty off white. I paid extra fee for in home delivery and it was well worth it. Delivery men were very polite and helpful. I would definately order from Wayfair again.
veronica from coconut creek, FL – Verified Buyer
A beautiful desk. It's a real piece of furniture. I needed to get a glass top made for it (My cat is a computer geek). The sizing is not exactly as described. The glass needed to be re-cut but I'm very pleased with this desk.
sheena from Dyer, IN – Verified Buyer
Comes well crated. Have a crowbar and some help. My only problem is the overwhelming chemical smell of the wood.. you will need a few days with the furniture in the garage to degas.
kathleen from Shelter Island Heights, NY – Verified Buyer
a really well made desk, came fully assembled, love the creamy white color
Cynthia from Miramar Beach, FL – Verified Buyer
This is a wonderful white writing desk with a large pullout tray for the keyboard and mouse. I wanted one with storage so this one is perfect. The size is perfect too! Love this desk!
mom of 3 from NJ – Verified Buyer
It is just what I wanted! A beautiful desk to have in my bedroom. Well made too! No complaints.
Perfect Size for the Office
Sassy Anne from Cincinnati, OH
[...]The drop lid drawer is a great place to tuck in a small paper cutter and my macbook. The bottom drawer fits all my files while there are two additional drawers for office supplies. The finish is an easy wipe off surface in an off white color with silver drawer pulls. It looks good in my blue office that is trimmed in white. [...] I was slightly disappointed with the finishing on the inside, not quite a washable surface. I spend all my time doing office jobs using the new desk.
SM from NY
This a nice piece. The quality is good and my husband and I were both pleased that it was delivered assembled. Looks great in our office!
