Is the stringer steel, power coated? - Is the stringer a metal beam?

Cary Bernstein Architect
It's field painted steel, not powder-coated. Due to the amount of field assembly, powder-coating would not have been practical. Minimalism takes a lot of time and editing. It's easy to be modern- hard to be minimal. There were at least 4 study models and many drawings used to determine the final design!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Eric Reinholdt, Architect added this to Design Workshop: Getting a Feel for Steel
More Steel TreatmentsBlackening. The surface of steel can be chemically altered in other ways. Blackening is a process in which the steel surface is coated in black oxide to protect it from rust (red oxide) and corrosion. This delivers a look similar to that of wrought iron, but more precise and without iron's brittleness. The thin black lines of the steel railing against the white wall make for a delicate, minimalist and sculptural stair here.

Here's a pic of the railing that we're debating on getting. Do u think it's too modern for the style we're going for? I'll add another pic of a railing that you recommended to see if I'm on the same page as u:) I do LOVE this, and it will look incredible with the mahogany !!
