I like the word ‘Baluster,’ it evokes a sense of beauty and strength. The first examples of balusters date back to the Assyrian empire (1000-900 BC). The origin of the word is a combination of French (balustre), Italian (balaustra), Latin (balaustium), and Greek (balaustion) and it is meant to represent the swelling of a partially open pomegranate flower. The use of iron balusters in staircases date back to the thirteenth century.
