are these 1" balusters? I love the heavier, less cluttered look vs. the standard 1/2" or 9/16" balusters. Please let me know - they seem to be hard to find and I'm wondering why they're not used more often since they're so handsome.

Hi Kara, What was the company that made these up for you? Thanks.

These balusters would probably run $60 to $80 each as compared to market pieces that run around $10 each. Each one is hand forged from a piece of solid square steel. To get custom made pieces like this, you would need to use a local blacksmith or order from a reputable ornamental metal fabricator.

Wouldn't have these go in to floor, but would have them go in to horizontal railing on upper and lower portion.

I would like the balusters to look like this in design but to be more of a silver metal with antiquing.
