Wrought iron stair railings are a popular choice – with great reason! Wrought iron is solid and sophisticated, handcrafted for a unique aesthetic and lasting durability. Ornamental metal is also highly versatile.

From elaborate Tuscan scrolls to abstract contemporary designs, wrought iron stair railings can be crafted to enhance any style in any space. This week, we explore several of our favorite simple wrought iron designs. These handrail systems, with clean, parallel lines, may be simple, but they are anything but plain.

Our customers often seek cable rail systems for parallel lines tracing the staircase’s ascent. Did you know that a similar effect can be achieved with wrought iron?  The beautiful modern stair below is a perfect example. A sleek handrail and series of ornamental bars are hand forged to create a unique and beautiful system.
