Different materials like wood, stone, concrete and glass have gone into putting together these elegant architectural masterpieces. Let’s take a look.

This unique glass staircase seems suspended in thin air with steps carved from laminate tempered glass. The floating stairs are lit by a railing of LED lights which produce an ethereal shade below the steps as well.

3. Reverse Steps

The delicate wooden swirl of a staircase looks like a modern art installation when placed against the brick wall with a classical white fireplace nearby.

This staircase has an art installation style look with a large horse placed in front of a solid-hued poster artwork. The black metal staircase with its glass railing and wooden steps matches the rustic look of the horse.

6. The Block Beauty

The cube-like steps have wooden layers with golden lighting to highlight the edges. These cubes sit squarely on the ground for a layered look before veering off into a linear curve with country style wooden railings on the side.

This art gallery style look makes the wide steps of the stairway the centre piece with artworks following their ascension in a line. The black frames of the paintings are the perfect contrast when combined with the pine-hued stairs in this simple and neat white space with its large skylights.
