A play of cool and warm materials and finishes ups the drama factor of this contemporary spiral staircase. Dark wood steps pivot around a metal central pole. Slate tile on the upstairs floor complements the stairway's crisp metal rails.
The dramatic entry sweeps up the spiral staircase with a vortex beginning at an antique finial in the foyer. The domed ceiling is made of hand-applied fish scales lit by a midcentury modern chandelier found in Paris. The iron stair railings add Mediterranean character to the design.
