Condo Dining Area

Baluster Table with GlassQuestion:

Hello! I’m totally stuck when it comes to our dining area in our small condo. I’d like to keep it light with a glass table top and I’ve come across your Baluster Table in the vintage wood finish and am thinking of pairing it with the upholstered Couture Chairs. Not sure how this would look in my South Florida Condo as its filled with dark wood Bahamian style shutters and a clean lined, slightly contemporary kitchen. Would love any suggestions!

Thanks So Much,


Dear Tracy,

Thank you for your design dilemma question. You’re right on track with our Baluster Base with Glass Top Table. Pairing it with our Couture Chairs will give it a light and inviting look. As far as the upholstery fabric, we are suggesting some tropical looking fabrics that will inspire that “island feel”. Antibes, Phoebe Green, Zebra Natural, and Arden Green are just a few Ballard fabrics with that tropical appeal. Of course, these are just some suggested fabrics, you certainly can send your own fabric to upholster your chairs.
