I was compelled to write a blog post about Kathy Ireland, (once a swim suit model, now rich entrepreneur) because her product line of baby and kids furniture is just so beautiful. I also have quite a lot in common with Kathy. In the 80’s we both looked pretty good in our bathing suits although she got her picture taken a lot more than I did. We also like cool socks, except that I wear them and she’s sold over 100,000,000 since she started her business out of her car in 1993…just selling socks! Now, we’re both moms, not super models and we’re both in the baby and kids furniture business except that she now makes millions selling over 45,000 products and I get to write about them. Aren’t the similarities uncanny!
Kathy’s story of going from super model, to fading modeling career to selling socks out of her car to billionaire business owner is quite inspiring! She was told by many that, “The sock business won’t ever work!,” but she pushed onward and turned a small business of selling socks into a huge conglomerate of kids furniture, home decor and lots of other products that are designed to provide solutions for busy families.
Her motto is to always keep communication open with customers to offer products that truly satisfy a family’s needs. We, at SimplyKidsFurniture.com share this motto and that’s another reason I like Kathy! It’s obvious that she truly sticks to this adage when you see the furniture and home decor products that she offers. Below I’ve highlighted one of my favorite Kathy Ireland Baby Furniture lines, but if you want to see more visit us today at SimplyKidsFurniture.com
I chose the Pennsylvania collection because this is baby furniture that you can get for your baby’s nursery and continue to use it in your child’s room till he/she is off to college. Then you can keep this furniture in a guest bedroom, which makes it lifetime furniture for your home. Now that’s impressive.
The Pennsylvania Crib converts to a daybed, toddler bed and full size bed, and has a timeless design that matches the sturdy, top quality craftsmanship and beautiful style of all the storage units in this line as well. All of the Kathy Ireland furniture collections offer furnishings that are built to last and look amazing in any home. Her designs really do provide solutions for busy families by offering sturdy, kid-tough furniture, gorgeous designs that never go out of style and functional furniture that adapts to a growing child’s changing needs! You Rock Kathy!!!
