Realms of the Unreal - Another amazing staircase find from fennore.tumblr.com. It's just so cool to look at but I can't say I'd want to use it on a daily basis. Spirals Staircases, Art Nouveau, Dreams House, Paris France, Future House, Spiral Stairs, Artnouveau, Dream Houses, Spiral Staircases
a 'secret' staircase, hidden from the main reception room, to access a new loft bedroom lit by roof lights. Limited by space, we melded the idea of a staircase with our client's desire for a library to form a 'library staircase' in which English oak stair treads and shelves are both completely lined with books. With a skylight above lighting the staircase, it becomes the perfect place to stop and browse a tome.
this is a wonderful way to economize your space, should you have that style of staircase. plus, it evokes one of those awesome "beauty and the beast"-style library ladders -- or are those just the fantastical imaginings of my inner nine-year-old? suffice it to say, had i been in belle's shoes, i would never have made it to the west wing.
