Beautifully designed, master-crafted staircases and handrails.

Excellence is our standard.



Our traditional staircases are the epitome of quality and artisan finery.

We work using only the finest timber and materials. From traditional Scandinavian pine, to beautifully warm and dense American Black Walnut, we rely on our suppliers from around the world to help us achieve the perfect finish; both to the eye and to the touch.

Combining the time-honoured study of traditional hand-crafting with innovative machining gives us the breadth of capability to create staircases reminiscent of any historic period. From flowing, hand-finished curves to the most ornate decorative carving, our craftsmen have an affection for beauty and an unwavering eye for detail.

The staircase we create for you can become both a seamless part of your interior aesthetic and a captivating centrepiece at the heart of your home. Balusters, handrail profiles, scotia mountings and side motif brackets are all hand-turned and moulded to match your original samples with precision or bring conceptual drawings to life.

We offer an extensive choice of natural soft woods and hard woods in addition to fabricated materials such as metal and glass, all sourced from our artisan partners in Britain and more exotic suppliers worldwide.

Whatever you desire, your precision-crafted Excel staircase will be beautifully imagined to be a stunning and elegant embellishment of your space.

Handrails are a part of our space we all take very much for granted – yet they are an artform in their own right and exceedingly complex to craft. A considerable degree of knowledge and experience, a love for curves, lines and geometry, are all requisite to creating an elegant yet functional and enduring part of your home or building.

Every single detail, without exception, is carefully and precisely designed, planned and sculpted to create perfect sweeping curves and seamless angles.

Our balusters are turned in our 15,000sq. ft workshop where we can replicate, with pace and precision, any baluster design, or achieve an original design that incorporates various elements from drawings, sketches and inspirational images.
