Square spindles - Thanks for the reply. Yes, that is why I like these spindles so much is because they are square, not round. Wondering if they can be purchased somewhere, or if they were custom-made. My builder has been unable to locate square spindles.

Your contractor can purchase square paint grade material from any decent lumber yard but you probably need a good stairbuilding contractor to get this professional look. Good luck.

Spindles? - Love the straight, modern-looking spindles. I am renovating a staircase but my contractor can't find them anywhere. Do you know where I could purchase those?

The spindles used in this staircase are square--not round.

Those were supplied by the owner or designer so I'm afraid we don't have that info.
