Stairs don’t have to be a completely utilitarian installation. Sometimes, stairs can lead absolutely nowhere at all such as this sculptural staircase featured in the first picture. These stairs are definitely for a journey, not a destination. Other stairs are far more impressive to the eye than they would be practical and useful staircases. Some are so twisted and turning that a couple of imbibed wobbly pops would make them a real challenge!! The piano staircase shows that stairs can serve more than one purpose — adding a bit of music to one’s daily trek to public transportation can certainly liven things up a bit! However, my favorite, by far is the last picture with two options downwards — by stair or by slide. Most kids would kill for this staircase to the kitchen for their morning cereal.
