MILKdesign modern staircase


MILKdesign Company started in 1998 in a loft on Chicago's west side. We started out a modern design furniture company has evolved over time into a Stair and Railing Design/ Fabrication/ Installation Company with the focus still entirely modern.

MILK has earned the reputation as the finest metal craftsmen in Chicago, still fabricating for Christian Liaigre, Holly Hunt, and select others, they have applied their furniture quality craft to stairs and railings.

MILK is the place to go for beautiful stairs and railings and we feel the staircase should be held as the most focal point in a home.

GREEN is the FUTURE and stainless steel as well as mild steel both share the same highly recycled quality.

While the amount varies from heat to heat based upon factors such as cost of contained elements, scrap availability and desired residual levels; typically, a new heat of stainless steel will be made up of a scrap charge, or recycled content of 75%. This means that 75% of the finished stainless steel we use for our railings os recycled and milld steel, which we construct our stairs from, which can get up to 95% recycled.

MILKdesign works throughout North America and i eager to expand to other areas. We provide full shop drawings for sign-off, fabrication documentation, and handle all of our own installations unless another process is arranged. We have a line of railings available and are developing a line of stairs from our existing body of work, we can work to specification when necessary but prefer to at least collaborate.

I thought horizontal rails in Chicago were against code as they promote a ladder effect? Is that a misnomer
