Model Turned Designer Kathy Ireland Adds Personal Touches to 2012 Indianapolis Home Show

INDIANAPOLIS – Brent Keller, group manager for the Indianapolis Home Show, is pleased to announce that Kathy Ireland will be making a special appearance at the 2012 Indianapolis Home Show.

Known for her many appearances in the annual Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue, Kathy Ireland is also an actress, entrepreneur, CEO and designer of her brand product marketing company, Kathy Ireland Worldwide. Her mission through Kathy Ireland Worldwide is “finding solutions for families, especially busy moms.”™
With her own line, Kathy Ireland Home®, Ireland works to offer both home solutions and products to make your personal spaces your home. Her products include everything from indoor and outdoor accessories to furniture, fabrics and home décor trimmings such as decorative pillows, clocks and area rugs.

Part of Kathy's team are Chef André Carthen and Landscape Designer Nicholas Walker. Chef André provides the brand with cooking, entertaining and culture solutions through ACafe™ society by Chef André, and Walker helps celebrate the outdoor living experience through Jardin J du J™. Presented by Window World, Ireland will appear — along with her chef and landscape designer team — at the Home Show on Saturday, January 21.

“It’s exciting that we are able to bring such a well-known name and personality as Kathy Ireland to this year’s Indianapolis Home Show,” Keller said. “Kathy is probably best known for her modeling days, but now she will show Home Show attendees a whole different side, helping them discover new ideas for their home, including entertaining and landscaping, that fit their lifestyle.”

As a special addition, Home Show attendees will be able to see Ireland’s personal décor touches on the Centerpiece Home, designed and fully-constructed by Fischer Homes, who will be showcasing its Stanton floor plan with a new Craftsman-styled elevation.
