What to Buy at Ballard Designs

When it was time to furnish my first apartment in Chicago over a decade ago, I turned to Ballard Designs for a few pieces for my home. Ballard Designs has been around since the 80s and is a great source for custom upholstery, furniture, and decor. I found myself shopping the sale for our new dining chairs, and found some great pieces. Since there’s a site-wide sale, I thought I’d share my favorites with you. If you’re looking for outdoor furniture, I can’t recommend the Giardino collection enough.

We have this outdoor patio set on our front patio and it’s so beautiful. It reminds me of a European garden. The Giardino collection is beautiful and sold out early last year. I love Ballard’s planters, too, and may need to order a few for our new patio and garden.



The lighting is so good, and pretty affordable. The Frida chandelier is a solid dupe for one I featured in this post
