Designer Spiral Staircase

A small space is reborn into a grand front foyer.

The graceful, curving staircase with a dark glossy handrail and spindles and marble tiled floor make a great first impression in this renovated Georgian-style home. Adding a chair and a nature-inspired statement table makes it an entry room, not just a transition space. Displaying art and decorating favourites — like a horn and stone pedestal urn filled with orchids — completes the traditional, polished look.
