When I was kid, I was every sort of nerd, but especially a history nerd. Still am and one of my favorite figures and fave former Virginia governor, is Thomas Jefferson. We have at least one thing in common, hatred of stairs. Good ol'Tom designed these odd things to get up more quickly (Sally Hemmings comment deleted)
Crazy! He also made tiny, treacherous things to avoid the unsightly, space hog that can be a staircase.
I generally find them ungainly but my Pinterest board, Stairs that don't suck is a testament to beauty in a stair.
Notice that they are all curved and sculptural in some way.
|I will always want one of these|
I wonder if Mr. Jefferson would approve?
