The railings are a composite railing system. Sorry, I do not have the manufacturer though.

There are some companies, Trex and Azek, which have an exotic wood line, that should come close. If you do not treat Ipe a few times a year, it will weather to a silver grey color.

Can you tell me where the furniture is from? Will be perfect for our porch we are building.

There was no special treatment at the step. A 2" to 4" step down onto a porch or deck is not that out of the ordinary. There is a clear delineation between spaces, so stepping in between the house and porch is quite natural.
