Cafe Collection from Ballard Designs

This time of year outdoor furniture starts cropping up everywhere. We're always thinking about using outdoor furniture, like these fun cafe tables and chairs from Ballard Designs, indoors too...

By using wispy, outdoor furniture in your kitchen or a little nook in your living room, it's an inspiring reminder of warmer days (when you're in the dead of winter). It's true that these tables, which come in round (24", 30", and 36") and rectangular, have a hole in the middle for an optional umbrella. Just put a vase in the middle or think of something clever to stick in the hole!

We like the prices of these tables, which range from $89-$129, and the choice of red, white or black. The chairs don't feel like as good of a deal at $109-$119/pair but still not bad. You could always mix in a pair of vintage chairs from a local secondhand shop.
