Description: an understated and sophisticated balustrade for a grand staircase.

Creating the right first impression was of utmost importance for the Yeatman Hotel, a Relais & Chateaux member, which prides itself on providing the epitome of sumptuousness to its guests. Nestled on a hillside the stunning entrance foyer is on the uppermost floor with a grand staircase leading down to the rest of the hotel.  Entrusted with the design of the balustrade, The Ironwork Studio proposed a classically influenced repeating pattern which frames the occasional more intricate decorative panel, giving punctuation and a point of aesthetic focus to the overall arrangement. Brass was used to break up and provide highlights to the otherwise black scheme with handrail, ball joint detail and a plaque containing the hotels ‘Y’ logo.
