I just received the new Ballard Designs "Casa Florentina"
special edition catalog in the mail.
Now normally, I'm not a huge fan of Ballard's, mostly because I get visually overstimulated by all the stuff they pack into their catalogs.
Also, their shipping charges and delivery wait times for furniture are outrageous!
In fact, although I'm a devout "big box" store fan (yeah I said it!), the only thing I've ever purchased from Ballard are these chandelier shades:
But I'm loving the look of these "Casa Florentina" pieces, beautifully photographed and mercifully shown without all that Ballard clutter.
So fresh, simple, and Restoration Hardware-esque (before RH lost their minds and started selling upholstered furniture without the upholstery!)
Of course, I have no clue about quality, but check these out! Pretty, right?
