Dream Staircases

The kind of staircase I like is one that is elegant, falling from the ceiling like a ribbon cascading to the ground. Not clunky, asserting its presence – but brilliantly designed so you feel all the more lighter as you alight.

Like the flick of the brush this beautiful staircase makes the room.

A pool of light is revealed as the curvaceous wooden staircase cuts out the floor. I love how it follows through underneath.

This feels very architectural, perhaps not elegant but certainly refined. The white steps stretch to the sides creating a perfect perching patch.

A delightfully minimal hand rail flawlessly twists into the ground.

Old school charm! Wonderfully wide for those gigantic skirts, this staircase transitions from wood to stone effortlessly.

A rhythmic staircase with a linear balustrade. There is something quite nautical about the black tripes. Perhaps it is their uniform nature, beautifully done.

We have an Egyptian feel next with these stone steps. Spacious and gently rising out of the ground, the smooth sides allow the light to bounce.

A nod to Art Deco, these stairs create a pleasing zig-zag just stopping short of the floor.

Striking putty pink stairs reveal a cut-out handrail as they swirl down the wall.

Pleasing shapes are created with this simple black metal handrail.

Strong concrete stairs make their presence known as they twist from the ceiling.

A slight but beautiful enclosed staircase. I like the blonde wood and vertical thin white-washed strips that follow the curve.

Ending with a note of monochrome, a confident staircase that breaks away from the wall has a playful feel.
