We talked about getting this table for about a year. My wife felt we had too much Ballard stuff but finally she cracked and we decided this was best for our breakfast nook in the kitchen. It truly makes our entire kitchen look remarkable and it’s like the spot was made for the Ancanthus base. The 48″ clear top makes the spot look more spacious and the glass is of utmost quality. Great piece for anyone that wants an amazing centerpiece on which to dine!
