In my role as a Design Professional, I visit some amazing showrooms that speak to the unparalleled work done by some very talented people. This past week I visited with the amazing team at Lakeshore Stair Company, a family owned business that has been crafting timeless custom staircases since 1932. As a companion to their much larger corporate office and manufacturing facility in Suburban Chicago is their charming design office located in Libertyville, Illinois. During my visit, I reviewed drawings and pricing for one of my current projects, while experiencing first had the quality craftsmanship and attention to detail they bring to every one of their projects. On a design note, the staircase plays such an important role introducing and defining the design of any home. And as a contractor at heart, I loved immersing myself in the options, details and decisions of this signature decorative element.
