9 Stairs That Are All in the Details

A beautiful stair creates continuity in a home, visually tying different spaces together and using design details to reflect the rest of the home’s style. These stunning stairs, ranging from modern to traditional, do just that.

This spiral stair features cerused oak treads and handrail and iron railings. It’s a transitional look with warm, traditional materials used in a modern way. (The home’s master bathroom, which won an Innovation in Design Award, similarly mixes classic and contemporary elements.)

For this New Canaan home’s interiors, the client wanted a totally fresh, modern look — the stair’s floating wood treads and metal railings accomplish just that, plus it’s indestructible enough for the family’s five kids.

This fun stair to a basement game area is an exciting departure for us, creatively, with unexpected under-lit glass treads and elegant grasscloth walls.

Here’s an entry that is fresh and bright with traditional elements: a wood stair and flush board wainscoting.

This is a traditional, always-elegant curved stair with simple tapered wood balusters and curvy newel posts.

These beaded straight balusters and custom “harp” baluster were inspired by country Swedish design.

This New Canaan home is unusual in that the main level is one floor up (from the top floor, they have views of Manhattan!), so the stair and entry are important design features. With custom balusters and newels inspired by a McKim, Mead, and White stair, they are an elegant transition from the entry into to the formal area of the home.

Another country Swedish-inspired harp design, this stair’s light colors complement the summery palette in this renovated vacation home on Shelter Island.
