Sound of Music Staircase

The split staircase in the 1965 movie “The Sound of Music” is designed with clean and tasteful railing and wooden handrails. The staircase was featured throughout the movie as the children left their rooms to answer their father’s whistle and line up from oldest to youngest. It is most remembered for the scene when the von Trapp children performed their “Farewell song” at the party before retiring to their rooms for the evening.

The Bradbury Building

This beautifully designed staircase in the historic Los Angeles Bradbury Building has been featured in many movies including ‘500 Days of Summer’. Its unique design of marble stairs with ornate wrought iron railings and beautiful polished oak wood handrails throughout the interior adds a type of elegance to the overall Romanesque feel of the building.

The Titanic Staircase

The Grand Staircase on the Titanic was designed for first-class passengers to use. This very elegant staircase was made of oak wood paneling, bronze cherubs that supported the lamps on the railings and iron banister grillwork and ormolu garlands. Descending five levels down from the boat deck to the F-deck and featured large glass domes for natural light to enter during the days, its design depicted “honor and glory”. 

The Spiral Vatican Staircase

The famous spiral double helix staircase at The Vatican was designed in 1932 and is one of the most photographed in the world. The actual steps of this staircase are somewhere between steps and a ramp. This unique staircase is a combination of 2 separate staircases, one leading upward and the other leading down.

The New Era of Interior Railing Design

For years, interior stairway railing design consisted of traditional wood newel posts paired with
matching wooden balusters. Today however, the design trend has changed. Nowadays, beautiful powder-coated iron balusters have become an interior design craze. In comparison to most interior design upgrades, replacing wood balusters with iron is inexpensive and a rather straight-forward project to undertake as it's not necessary to remove or dismantle the wood handrail and newel posts.

When stunning powder-coated iron balusters are blended with a wood handrail and newel posts, the results are impressive as a powerful, visual contrast is created. Because a staircase is often the first thing people see when they walk into a home, it becomes the focal point at the entrance of the home and especially if the styles and materials used go well with the home's architecture and interior décor.

Endless Options for Custom Designs

Today, homeowners are demanding that balusters feature high quality finishes. To meet this demand, LIC Rail Supplies offers high quality powder-coated balusters which are available in many standard colors. Some of the stock colors we offer on our quality iron balusters include black, copper, vein, oil rubbed bronze, oil rubbed copper, vintage brass, dark champagne, antique nickel and many more.  We also can accurately custom-color balusters to match virtually anything in the stairway or nearby vicinity. All the powder-coated balusters we sell come with a lifetime warranty on the finish and construction for added value and your long-lasting peace of mind.

The powder-coated balusters we offer are available in a wide variety of designs ranging from thin single twists to more elaborate double-S scroll designs with a thicker profile. All the powder-coated iron balusters we carry are made by metal artisans who painstakingly craft the balusters in fine detail.

For our customers who wish to replace their existing handrails, we offer a wide selection of beautiful wood handrails made from a variety of quality wood species such as walnut, hard maple, cherry, poplar, red oak, white oak, hickory, Brazilian cherry and beech.

Stairway Renovation in Haddon Township

Here is one of my favorite jobs. For this project we removed all the old carpet on the stairs and replaced there old pine steps with solid oak treads. We painted the risers white to make the stairway look larger and also to give it a more modern feel.

The iron balusters used in this project are from our Twist series. They were ordered in a designer copper vein finish and they just look awesome in this home. When I net with the homeowners they had some idea on what they were looking for. It's very helpful when you meet with the clients and they have already done their due diligence before hand.

These clients were a pleasure to work for. They allowed me to have some creative input based on the fact that I design stairways for all types of decors everyday. I have to say, the colors that the homeowners selected look awesome in their home.

The rich look of the professionally stained oak wood rail and stair components along with the designer copper vein finish on the iron balusters, completely compliment each other.

If you would like to have our designer from Lomonaco's Iron
Concepts come out and design a new stairway for you, just
pick up the phone and set up your free in-home consultation
today at 856-740-1071 or you can email us at

Warm Regards,
