That looks to me to be probably an oak stair rail, you can purchase by the foot at hd. It doesn't look stained, it looks painted using a semi gloss or pearl sheen. To achieve the look, go with a softer black or even a dark brown. Painting instead of staining makes it easier to clean plus gives it a lasting sheen.

How do I know? I redid my staircase. ;)
