"Each of the kathy ireland Office collections was created not only to fit perfectly in your home or office, but also within your budget," added Sherbet. "Designing solutions for families has been our priority from the start and this is reflected in every piece of furniture, from the multifunctional features, coordinated accessories and safety elements. We believe our customers will truly recognize and appreciate the 'fashion, quality, value and safety'™ that the products deliver."
Last year, kiWW®, the design and marketing company founded by CEO and Chief Designer, Kathy Ireland, signed an exclusive licensing agreement with Bush Furniture to develop new lines of office and home furnishing solutions. Through the partnership, the kathy ireland Office® by Bush Furniture brand was launched featuring a comprehensive assortment of stylish, practical and high quality pieces. The collection will be distributed nationally and available at retailers across the country, as well as online, beginning this summer.

Throughout the kathy ireland Office® by Bush Furniture line, Bush has designed and implemented pioneering Quick-to-Assemble (QTA) technology that is proven to be up to five times faster to assemble than traditional RTA furniture. With Bush Furniture QTA™, there are fewer pieces and steps providing an overall easier and more satisfying assembly experience.

Safety also is one of the key components of the kathy ireland Office® by Bush Furniture line. All products have been tested to meet ANSI and UL standards and provide child safety features, such as rounded edges and high durability work surfaces. Additionally, every entertainment stand is equipped with StabiliBar™ - a safety brace patented exclusively to Bush and designed to reduce the risk of flat-panel television tipping accidents. StabiliBar is a must-have for families with small children, pets and even active gamers.
