    What type of Venetian Plaster?

    The venetian plaster used is a standard mix but was applied in several directions which gives the unique appearance. Jergens Painting in Seattle was the installer, they can give you more specifics.

Are the side of the stairs metal? Or is that painted? I absolutely love all of your work!

    Hi There,
    Thank you for the lovely compliment. The stair stringer is blackened steel ( a chemical finishing process). The wall behind is venetian plaster with a raking light that gives the wall an amazing glow.

    Can the chemical finishing process be done after the stairs are manufactured?

how can I achieve the look of this VP? How is that technique called? Where can I get a tutorial to learn it?

- I like the look of that VP. Would love to learn how to do it. I even can pay for the online tutorials...

    That would be question for the installer - Jergens Painting LLC. It's an art form, good luck!

What company can do this type of staircase for me and what would be the approximate cost of it.?

  • PRO
    McClellan Architects
    This is a custom designed an fabricated staircase. Your best bet is to work with a designer, structural engineer, and contractor to achieve a similar staircase. From their design, the contractor would be able to give you accurate pricing. It was definitely a labor of love.

Who was the supplier of the glass support brackets and handrailing system-it's very neat.

    Thanks on the answer-you did a great job on them. Can you share the name of the fabricator?

    I don't have a record of this particular fabricator - he was a subcontractor. But here is a name of another fabricator that could produce the same level of work.

    It looks like they were confused and were trying to add your photo to their category "stairs/staircase", or "escalera" in Spanish.
    Nice escalera by the way :-)
    I like the wall as well. I did a wall finish about ten years ago with a similar concept but using a plaster and a custom fabricated notch trowel. It was based on a finish at a chapel on the Seattle University campus. It's worth stopping in to see if you're ever in that area.

    Hi, Was this question for the general forum? I think you can use curtains and shutters together. I would pick curtains that compliment your furniture and walls with a simple pattern or just plain.
  • miacometlady
    I went back to your original post from June 20th on this same question that included a picture of your plantation shutters. I would not add drapes. If you open shutters they will open onto drapes.

Can the blackening process be done after manufacturing the steel?

  • PRO
    McClellan Architects
    Hi, I am not a steel finishing expert, but I believe the blackening process is applied after the steel is fabricated. In some projects they have even applied it on site. Thanks,

What is the finish on the wall? It is beautiful.

    Thank you! The finish is venetian plaster and it gets the gold glow from the light fixture above.

    I don't know how to edit the title of this question, but it was supposed to be "How is the wood tread connected to the steel frame"?

  • PRO
    McClellan Architects

    Hi, this is a very complex stair to build. There is a steel frame that the wood treads and risers sit on. If you send me an email at info@mccarch.com with this question I can give you a more detailed explanation. Thanks,

    The stair wall is finished in a Venetian plaster texture, installed by a local artisan.
