OBSESSIONS: Plaster staircases

Plaster.  Oak.  Steel.  Three of our all-time favorite elements in a home.  Add them to a dreamy and architectural staircase, and amazing things are bound to happen.  More typical in European design, the use of plaster is gaining popularity here in the states and we love that.  When added to something as architectural as a staircase, plaster has a way of simplifying something that can be quite complex to the eye.  Let's not confuse simplicity with plain or boring though, because plaster has depth and texture it adds to the mix.  That depth creates a livable, touchable, surface that in most cases, needs nothing more added to it.  Applied to the walls of a staircase and mixed with wood and steel, the space becomes nothing less than a work of art.  Here is a small collection of some of our long time and even more recent favorite plaster staircases.  We look forward to creating some of our own!  Enjoy!
