Stunning Stair Design From Around the World

Stairways have been moving people up and down floors for centuries. The simple act of walking up a staircase is often something we never even think about. However, designers have been exploring this architectural element for as long as stairs have been around, and have shown us just how unique, creative, and stylish stairs can be. It’s amazing how a pop of color can change the feel of a space, or how use of different materials can change the mood of a home or office.

We explore a few examples of creatively designed stairways below.
