Furniture World News on

Our mission is clear. We are continuously, “…finding solutions for families, especially busy moms.” The newest addition to the Kathy Ireland HOME® by Martin home office family is the Eclipse Collection. Debuting at High Point Market, April 2005, the modular collection embraces function and compliments any room in the house. Currently consisting of ten SKUs, Eclipse provides the ability to expand and add to office and family needs. The endless array of configurations makes Eclipse a comfortable, organized and contemporary group for the home. Constructed of solid alder hardwood and cherry veneers, Kathy Ireland HOME® by Martin offers only the best in value and quality furniture. Inspired from the Architectural Style Guide, Eclipse comes in an amber or spice finish accented with satin finish knobs for a simple, yet chic look. Equipped with childproof flip-up power supply with USB and internet connectors, Eclipse is the home office collection that satisfies the needs of grown-ups that can also become a workstation for the kids. To insure safety, included are tip kits to attach furniture pieces to the wall to avoid bookcases and heavy furniture from tipping or falling on little ones. In the area of home design, the choices are so limitless that selecting furniture can be intimidating. It was that intimidation and the search for value, fashion and function that lead Kathy Ireland on her journey of designing for families. The Kathy Ireland Home® by Martin program is designed to be eclectic and fun so families can place home office, wall systems and home theater furniture in their home with confidence. Fashion, quality, value and safety are our best selling commitments to customers. About Kathy Ireland: Kathy is CEO and Chief Designer of Kathy Ireland Worldwide in Los Angeles, California.
