{flight of fancy}

. . . quite taken with the idea of a glass staircase -- as with lucite, glass is light and airy, with a little dash of fairytale glamour . . .

The rug really completes the effect. But I can't imagine having the fortitude needed to clean those stairs every day!

But falling down would be so sad. Tragic even.

Sharper -- walked on a flight of glass stairs once and at first was afraid as well {especially in heels!}, but it was exactly the same the as wooden stairs and quite fun

Joanna -- completely agree about the rug, but hadn't even given a second thought to cleaning :)

LPC -- so true -- of course, same could be said of all stairs . . .

I think I'd be a bit afraid too. But mostly I'd be too worried that people could see up my skirt!

Rather Cinderella-esque!! As if a glass-soon-to-be-pumpkin coach is nearby, and a glass slipper...

Emily, I thought the same thing about walking up in a skirt if there are boys on that bench! I heard about a college that put in a glass staircase in the middle of the library, and they had to carpet it. ): looks sublime, though!

Gorgeous, but I would be afraid of it. Grace is my nickname and not because I am full of it.
