Tuscany, located in central Italy, is a gorgeous region known for its numerous contributions to Renaissance art and architecture. Considering the region’s beauty and flair for design, it is no surprise that many of our customers seek to enhance their luxury homes with Tuscan staircases.
This week, we share an overview of Tuscan design and highlight three of our favorite Tuscan staircases – each featuring a beautiful wrought iron railing system.
What are the Key Elements of Tuscan Design?
Inspired by the tones and beauty of the region’s hillside, Tuscan style is known for its earthy warmth. Very inviting and built to stand the test of time, Tuscan interiors often feature crumbled stone accents, textured walls, murals, and mosaics.
Wrought iron pieces including sconces and light fixtures are often incorporated into Tuscan designs as well.
Tuscan Staircase Design: Featured Projects
The home of our first featured Tuscan staircase is a prime example of Tuscan and Renaissance design. The arched doorway, wrought iron accents, and earth-toned flooring combine to create a true central-Italian feel. The elegant wrought iron railing system perfectly completes the look of the striking curved stair and balcony system.
Our next featured Tuscan staircase is a beautiful curve. The space’s earth tones and stone-inspired sconce are excellent examples of Tuscan design elements. The ornamental metal rail system is crafted with a unique vine pattern, adding to the natural, earthy feel.
Our final Tuscan staircase of the week was designed and constructed for another luxury residence. This home’s textured walls, arches, and iron accents also channel that unique central Italian feel. The curved staircase features beautiful tiled risers, an excellent fit for the Tuscan affinity for mosaics. The wooden stringer and railing are joined by an elaborate scrolled wrought iron balustrade system. The unique design elements of the staircase and space are warm, inviting, and beautiful.
