A sinuous wood handrail follows the curve of a custom wood banister on the staircase of this contemporary urban townhouse. The blond wood finish of the handrail takes its cue from the pale hardwood floors and pops against a dark brown wall.
The classic staircase and foyer in this renovated row home feature a modern-meets-traditional design, from the dark gray painted stairs with wooden handrail to the neutral, minimalist furniture seen in adjoining rooms.
Dark hardwood floors juxtapose the crisp, white walls in this transitional entry. The staircase is outfitted with a modern metal and cable handrail, and works perfectly with the entry table made of wood and brushed metal.
This sleek staircase features perfect 90 degree edges on the beautifully shined wood steps. Steel cable rails add to the modern look as they flow beneath the black handrails. The darker tones look great against the clean white walls.
The staircase leading into the foyer is an example of midcentury craftsmanship. Dark grey tile was added to accent the staircase's style. The original treads and railing were left, and the handrail was replaced with the wood cap that the client requested for a more authentic finish.
Dark polished wood steps match the handrail leading down this twisting staircase. A diamond shaped pendant light hangs above to brighten the space and fill the high ceiling. A striped runner adds vivid color to the design while framed artwork and mounted trinkets decorate the white wall space.
A low angle photo accentuates the beautiful shapes in this open, bright foyer. A decorative crystal chandelier hangs down over the beginning of the staircase. The stairs turn and travel up lined with wood columns and handrail. A dark painted ceiling section adds depth to the design and compliments the gray walls of the first floor.
