Kathy Ireland began her career as a model and actress. In 1993 she endorsed a line of socks that became a best-selling item at Kmart stores. She was immediately offered a full clothing line, and later that year, she formed her own design company with herself as Chief Designer and CEO. Today, Kathy Ireland Worldwide pulls in over $1 billion in gross receipts and sells a full line of interior design and furniture products, including rugs, bedding, living room sets, accessories, and outdoor furniture. In the year 2000, Kathy Ireland began work to expand their name by partnering with the top manufacturers in several categories to create a top-notch “Portfolio of Brands.”

One of Kathy Ireland’s top products is her line of home office furniture. Kathy Ireland office furniture is manufactured by Martin Home Furnishings. Both Kathy Ireland and Martin work to cross-promote and market the line. Currently, the Kathy Ireland line of office furniture is composed of 25 separate collections. Each collection comes with a choice of desks, bookcases, shelves, extensions, tables, cabinets, and chairs.

Kathy Irelands Ashbury office furniture is in a modern design with a deep, chocolate wood finish and well-defined edges that create sleek lines. The collection is very functional and meant to complement a modern, urban style.

The top door opens to become the table surface and two bottom doors open to reveal shelving and a pull-out printer stand.
