Stairways make one think of movement. They lead us to places, people and experiences. In a home, a stairway is often a connect between the family rooms on the lower floor and the more personal bedrooms on the upper floor. However, a stairway needn’t be a boring flight of stairs, it can be an edgy connect between the outer and inner facets of a home.
This delightful futuristic staiway is made of wooden steps with a stony gray finish, and is safe yet sleek with a glass railing around it. But what sets this stairway apart, is the soft white light beneath every step and the chandelier of golden balls of light, hanging in the centre of the stairway. From a functional point of view too, the light will come in very handy if someone has to tread down the steps in the middle of the night.
Spiraling stairways are not just a kid’s fantasy, but also an edgy addition to any home. Made of metal, this stairway has triangular white steps, that spiral up with a twisting three-tiered black metal railing. The thick top railing gives one ample support, while the steps are well spaced to give one balance. This stairway is simple to clean and maintain, but isn’t suited for a very humid weather as it will be prone to rust. Check out this Kayak staircase for a radical stairway idea.
