That's custom made. Find yourself a good cabinet shop, and it could indeed be yours!

Classic Tansu style! Love it.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Busy multi-story homeowners have long known that a basket on the stairs can keep clutter at bay. But this ingenious solution by Donald K. Olsen Architects takes the concept even further, making clever use of "dead" space with handsome built-in drawers and bins.
Kathryn added this to Stairway To ...
Sometimes we find staircases taking up too much room in an already cramped space. These stairs provide the ultimate solution to that problem by opening up a great storage option. Figure out which things you most often take from downstairs to upstairs with you (slippers, books, glasses) and start storing them in the drawers of your staircase.
These steps are designed to look like traditional kaidan or step tansu. The original ones were not built-in and could be disassembled and moved.
Becky Harris added this to Need More Space? Look Under the Stairs
The latest in under-stair storage: Drawers that hide everything you need to store, like magazines, movies, games and toys.

Nice storage idea for steps from kitchen going up, but accessing from the steps going down to the basement; this would only work if we don't use that space under steps in the "office"
