They are coated and retain their original color. Look the same today as when they were installed!

The wood used on the wall is beautiful. Is this some sort of cedar product? Could you tell me a little more?

Absolutely beautiful and original staircase. I am looking for something similar in the middle of the open plan. Can you please tell the width of the staircase, looks like around 90 cm one side?

I'd show this photo to your finish contractor/interior designer and let them work out the details of what products to use to get the effect that would work well for your conditions.

This is a custom built stair rail to our design. The balusters are copper and the posts and handrails are mahogany. Thanks!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

This wall, sheathed in natural mahogany planks, anchors this room without being heavy. Woods look best when there are a variety of wood species used in the same room. All of the wood tones and grains work together when this is done properly. It's a terrific way for finishes to do double duty as adornments.
Bud Dietrich, AIA added this to Architect's Toolbox: Beautifully Layered Spaces
10. Anchor the space. Use a strong vertical element such as a staircase, chimney or other structure to counteract the space spinning off in all directions.
