Stairs Somewhere In Chicago.

Eliana TomazComment
Following my "A Bar In Chicago" post I want to share another dramatic space from the same American show I've mentioned last time: these stunning stairs.
Classic style is not what I would chose to live on, but I find these stairs amazing: the form, the way they dance in space, banister details and the spectacular stone floor pattern in the hall.

Very good images to get inspiration from, don't you think?

Stairs are these kind of space no one spends time on, but they are indeed the key element to make any spatial journey breathtaking.

Look at the marble on the walls and the stained-glass window - two completely different materials yet both so harmoniously living together.

And because we are talking about detail and materials, this wooden floor couldn't be missing here. Simple pattern, perhaps hand crafted, giving such volume to a flat surface.
