These unique floating staircases feature angular, laser-cut stringers that typically enclose stair treads on both sides. Paired with cable railing, zigzag and sawtooth stairs can give any space a clean and contemporary feel. Our team of talented engineers design completely custom stairs made to fit the existing architecture of your home.

Custom Zigzag and Sawtooth Stairs by Keuka Studios

1. Red Oak Zigzag Staircase with Cable Railing

Our client in Teaneck, New Jersey wanted a staircase for their foyer that would make a statement. They decided on a custom floating staircase with cable railing and zigzag stringers. To create a cohesive look, the homeowner chose black powder-coated steel for both the stair stringers and the Ithaca Style railing posts. The staircase also features American red oak treads that match the foyer’s dark wood flooring.

2. Modern Steel and White Oak Zigzag Stairs

Keuka Studios designed and fabricated a modern floating staircase for the renovation of this Greenwich, Connecticut home. The home has a cool, luxurious feel and the homeowner wanted a unique staircase to complete the look. Our team designed an open-riser staircase with laster-cut zigzag stringers. The stringers are steel with a black powder coat. For the staircase, we also crafted an Ithaca Style cable railing system. The railing features stainless steel posts and a white oak top rail that matches the stair treads.

3. Oak Sawtooth Staircase

For this local project, we designed and built custom sawtooth stairs with an Ithaca Style cable railing system. The floating staircase features laser-cut steel stringers with a “Raven Texture Black” powder coat and oak treads. We crafted the cable railing system with black powder-coated steel posts that are directly mounted to the steel plate stair stringers. The railing includes a wood oak top rail that matches the stair treads.
