for homeowners, architects and builders.
We understand the sensuous geometry of a compound curve. We know how to create the perfect helical twist in wood or steel. We know how to construct your staircase and handrail offsite, out of the way. And how to fit it in place with precision that is measured in 64ths of an inch.
We empower you to pursue aesthetic perfection, keeping an eye on comfort, feasibility and the pertinent building codes.
Many architects and builders find themselves approaching the completion of a signature project without a real plan for the staircase. They find themselves scrambling to put something together at the last minute – and the entryway becomes a missed opportunity.
We work with owners, architects and builders from early on in the process to ensure this doesn’t happen.
Like the world’s most beautiful staircases, our design process begins with an open space and the owner’s vision of a beautiful, sensuous handrail.
The top-down approach to staircase design is proactive. To do it right, it’s important to bring in a staircase professional from the very beginning. This is something about which we are passionate. It means you design your staircase once. You pay for it once. And you build it once.
As a dedicated staircase specialist, we manage the entire process. We’ll guide the owner and the project team through staircase construction from design to installation. We balance aesthetic beauty and feasibility.
We have established relationships with glassmakers, steel fabricators, engineering specialists and specialty suppliers who work with us to bring everything together seamlessly. For the building contractor we represent a total, no-hassle, comprehensive solution – the “Swiss watch” of your construction project.
The staircase is constructed in our studio. When it’s complete, we install it on-site. In most cases installation takes only a few days. We know how to work within a complex project schedule, avoiding conflicts with the work of other trades.
We execute projects at the highest levels of technical mastery. Whether we’re creating a unique modern masterpiece for Barney’s New York, or a historical reproduction outside of Jackson Hole, our clients have learned to trust in our expertise to shepherd diverse materials through a complex process and deliver an end result that is truly, unforgettably, unique.
In many homes, the staircase is the first thing people see when they walk in the door. An artisan staircase from Seattle Stair & Design ensures that first impression will be memorable.
Don’t delay staircase design until financial or logistical constraints make it impossible to build the staircase you want.
We work with your team from the very beginning and guide you through our intelligent process.
Intelligent staircase construction means your staircase is designed once, built once, and paid for once. The result is compelling – ensuring that the first impression, upon entering your space, will be a lasting one.

“You were true to your word regarding everything you promised and were great to work with as well.
The curved moldings, railings, treads, risers are all flawlessly executed. However, my favorite parts are the hand-carved starter newel, volute, and of course the hand-carved newel finial – the pineapple.
I told you early on I had been burned by a lot of contractors. You told me it was your mission to help restore my faith. Well, it worked!
