I completely agree. Good design needs to be safe! They need to install a glass or acrylic panel inside the framework.

Completely agree - these railings were unsafe. We recently purchased this condo and the inspector had a huge issue with these railings. They have since been replaced with up to code railings.

Sorry for the delay, just noticed this comment. These are hickory 4", 5" and 6" hardwood planks.

Where can I get a runner like the red/black/white/gray one? - It would go great with my Navajo rug

The Owner picked those rugs up in New Mexico somewhere. I don't know where. Sorry.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Kathryn added this to Home Design Ideas for the Cowgirl at Heart
Traditional southwestern style like this always makes a cowgirl think about her favorite ranch. The simplicity here is appealing to a girl who likes to be out on the range. Personally, I'd probably add a hat and lasso on the wall as additional decoration but I can appreciate the starkness here.
decordemon added this to Trend Alert: Navajo Decor
Overall, Navajo-style blankets and rugs are the most popular items made and sold by the Navajo People. If you're a modernist and/or minimalist, a great way to achieve the less-is-more Navajo look is by keeping a neutral, textural backdrop and playing with materials architecturally. This incorporates elements of the style without being in-your-face and it highlights one-of-a-kind, Navajo pieces such as tapestries or longhorns. (Now that I wrote about them, I kinda want longhorns in my house.) One of the most common Navajo patterns of the 20th century is the "Eyedazzler," consisting of small, serrated diamonds which appear to form rows of bigger serrated diamonds — all boasting contrasting outlines.

9. Western style. Okay, I admit that Western style is not for everybody. But, this version of a handrail has an immediate appeal beyond what I would expect. The fabric provides warmth, pattern and color to the otherwise cool tones of this staircase. Throw in a steer skull and horns for instant Western style.

Even the simple act of draping a special fabric over a banister will give your stairwell an entirely different look.
Lisa Frederick added this to Great Material: Gray Wood for Winter
The Old West gets a contemporary spin: rough-hewn railings, a longhorn skull as a sculptural accent, and just enough color to keep it from feeling drab.
Charmean Neithart Interiors added this to Great New Looks for an Accessory You Already Own
Visualize unique applications for blankets. I love this idea of jazzing up a stair handrail with blankets.This sparked a lot of ideas for me. Similar applications would be wrapping a column or a doorjamb.
