Wooden balustrades balance solidity with lightness.
A wooden balustrade lends warmth and perceived solidity to a staircase. Either divided up into individual vertical pieces or designed as one continuous panel, a wooden balustrade provides a soothing, stable presence.
Despite wood’s natural opacity, Arden’s wooden balustrades often feel relatively light and open. Arden achieves this effect by carefully engaging with the balustrade’s existing surroundings. When exposed to light, Arden’s wooden balustrades produce a warm glow, which inspires feelings of security. Each Arden balustrade balances the structural demands of the stairs with a greater aesthetic appreciation of the space.
