There is a certain richness about timber and wood when used in a large scale within your home. It adds a touch of the outdoors to our inside environments and is above all, a very durable and sustainable material to build with.

When a staircase is built in its entirety from wood, it transcends to a whole new level, taking on a sculptural and artisanal quality. From highly conceptual to contemporary and classic, we have put together an ideabook full of ideas for your future staircase project.

Building blocks

With a Tetris like quality, this incredible set of stairs looks solid and pure. This piece has a strong sculptural quality and has a very commanding presence in the room. In a beautiful contrast with the marble and resin, the pale timber finish both blends in and stands out at the same time.

Levels

A more classic example of staircase design is shown in this photo. Keeping to a more standard form of construction and design, this is a beautiful and elegant way to commence your ascent to the floor above. Complementing perfectly with the remainder of the colour scheme employed, these stairs, as beautiful as they are, blend seamlessly into their environment. A welcome choice for those more in favour of a subtle aesthetic.

The geometry in this room is just magical and the staircase with its sharp design simply highlights this further. The craftsmanship behind this set of wooden stairs is undeniable; each step appears to just seamlessly be connected to one another forming this unified and exquisite piece of art.

Between the folds

This is one of those unique photographs that very little can be used to describe, or do justice to what you see. This weightless and seemingly floating design reaches out from the floor below and bends and twists its way to the floor above. Just like a piece of paper origami, it has been masterfully crafted into this unique and weightless form. Requiring precision cut wood and clever engineering, you can have this carved element of artistry in your home.

Given that trees must be sacrificed in order to create a treasure like this, it is only fair to pay homage to the forms and shapes that the wood once took on in nature. Bending and curving at irregular angles, and appearing as though it is climbing towards the light in the canopy above, this staircase resembles organic architectural forms which are seen all over the world. And of course, nature is their muse.
