Kathy Ireland’s collaborations with top product design companies like Nourison, Pacific Coast Lighting, and Michael Amini have helped her manufacture and distribute high-quality, pricepoint friendly sofas, chairs, lighting, dining sets, and other home goods to homes across the United States and around the world.
In her latest cooperative effort with TK Classics, Ireland is now diving headfirst into the world of outdoor furniture.
The partnership between Kathy Ireland Worldwide and TK Classics may be in its infancy, but that doesn’t hinder its remarkable appeal. During House Tipster’s first look at the new line during Winter 2019 Las Vegas Market evident, host Christopher Grubb immediately noted the new collection’s detailing and superior quality, which help the line match up with high-end outdoor furniture products on the market.
You could say that this outdoor furniture collection was a match made in heaven.
“[Outdoor furniture] is an area we’ve held off on,” Ireland noted, adding that her team wanted to be sure they found the right partner. They found that partner in TK Classics. Upon meeting up in late 2018 at the Chicago Market, TK Classic’s Founder and CEO Jennifer Hayes and Kathy Ireland knew they had a good thing going, and immediately got to work on the collection.
Kathy Ireland Worldwide operates with set standards, including quality, fashion, value, safety, and a mission of serving families, and Ireland immediately felt that TK Classics held the same values. “Partnering with Jennifer and her team was an easy decision, especially once we learned about the company and their quality,” said Ireland.
The resulting collection is style-driven and big on value. Plus, it’s sized right and perfect for both small and large-space living. Grubb noted details, such as vertical piping, which provide “elegant detail” rarely seen at this price point. The line relies heavily on white and other neutral cushion colors, but there are a few ways consumers can add pops of color, such as throw pillows and by changing cushion covers seasonally.
In the future, Ireland and Hayes anticipate creating new lifestyle pieces to expand the collection such as dining tables, chaise lounges, and even fire pits.
Thanks to Kathy Ireland Worldwide and TK Classics, there’s a lot to look forward to in the seasons and years to come!
