kathy ireland® Worldwide Expands into Commercial Furniture with BBF

kathy ireland® Worldwide has expanded into the professional office with a pair of commercial furniture collections through a partnership with Bush Business Furniture (BBF).

The new Echo and Method lines, on display in Showroom 11-115 at NeoCon in Chicago June 12-14, represent the launch of Office by kathy ireland®. By extending its reach into BIFMA-grade products, kathy ireland® Worldwide strengthens a longstanding relationship with Bush Industries Inc., a leading manufacturer which operates multiple brands including BBF.

Since the partnership began in 2010, kathy ireland® Office by Bush Furniture has topped $100 million in sales with a focus on solutions for the home. Inspired by Kathy Ireland’s passion for business, the new commercial designs bring fashionable looks and professional quality into today’s rapidly changing workplaces.

“Whether you’re a work from home parent, small business owner, entrepreneur or new business start-up, we value your needs for fashion forward, reliable office furniture to fit your unique style and personality,” said Ireland, one of Forbes Magazine’s 50 most successful self-made women. “We also respect your budget, the spaces in which you work and desire for durable, flexible solutions that promote growth and productivity.”

Featuring a crisp, contemporary design, Echo gives commercial office furniture an inviting residential look to reflect customers’ personal and professional styles. The collection includes desk and storage solutions finished in pure white to seamlessly blend into a modern small business or remote workspace.

The other new introduction, the American-made Method collection combines metal and wood to celebrate mid century modern style. Designed with an urban appeal meant for a start-up, loft or creative space, the desk and storage products come in cocoa oak and white finish options. Both collections also include ergonomic height adjustable standing desks.

“We’re thrilled to share our new Echo and Method collections through our partnership with Bush Business Furniture – where fashionable design meets professional quality,” says Kathy Ireland, Chair, CEO and Chief designer of kiWW, noting the residential touch the products provide. “Home offices served as the nucleus for several of today’s Fortune 500 companies. Great ideas nurtured in an inspirational work environment that can withstand the long hours and everyday rigors of a new or changing business venture. Our commercial designs will have customers feeling right at home wherever and however they work.”
