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.

This is a solid desk that I have beat up a bit unfortunately but it has held up nicely. The drawers are not top notch...they feel a little light which usually means cheap but they work just fine. Nice finish. Looks great.
This desk is huge!
Pamela from Waleska, GA– Verified Buyer
I was looking for a desk that was long, to use behind my sofa. It looks beautiful, and adds so much between my living room and dining room. It has a nice large drawer in the middle and a beautiful finish. I love it.
Wow!!! Very Happy!
Furniture Buyer from Carterville, Illinois
There is always some hesitation when ordering items online. I have never ordered from Wayfair, so I did not know how the desk would be. It matches perfectly with the description online. The desk is better then I had hoped. I have know trouble at all recommending this desk to anyone. The one thing that kind of put a small frown on my face was the big, "Made In Mexico" painted on the underside of the desk. Come on Kathy Ireland.

This desk has an expansive top with plenty of work space. It has nice brass hardware on the drawer and adequate room for storage. It is well built and stylish.

These desks are very nice, heavy and beautiful. Nice black finish. One thing was that the drawer pulls were not silver like in the photo, they were black. We bought 4 desks for office [...].
Love this desk!!
