To create the illusion of a floating stair, designers hid the support in the wall behind the stairs. This support, along with the co-planar, clear-tempered glass rails and childproof open slots elegantly comply with New York's rigorous safety code as well as the highest child safety standards.
This foyer instantly sets a whimsical, airy scene thanks to ceilings that go up to the second level, a floating staircase with glass railings, dandelion puff pendants and sculpture climbers scaling the walls.
A soft gray settee is paired with a sleek white coffee table and end table to create a cozy seating area in the foyer. A floating staircase combines dark wood with glass railings for a chic, contemporary look.
Natural light pours in from two-story windows that showcase a stunning architectural design: the floating staircase. A low modular sectional is paired with streamlined tables and opens up to the kitchen, creating a simple, clean flow to the living space.
A large floating staircase helps to break up this open-plan entryway and keeps the space from feeling cavernous with such high ceilings. Light wood railings blend with the hardwood floor and neutral walls to create a cohesive, uninterrupted design.
This living room was subdivided to create a bedroom, and a floating staircase was added to the newly extended second floor. The stair treads and landings were made from local reclaimed heart pine, and milled from 15" deep beams. Designer Heather Garrett custom mixed the stain so it would match original flooring.
With clean lines and walls of glass, this entryway is as light and airy as it gets. The staircase only enhances the effect; its open siding makes it seem as if the feature is floating from the front door to the second level.
Warm woods contrast against the cool gray walls in this contemporary entryway. A floating staircase is grounded by the dark brown wood stairs, while glass railings create a light, airy look. A chic settee paired with a sleek coffee table makes a cozy seating spot.
