Spiral staircase is crafted in the manner of models made by members of a French Guild. Cherry and birch wood finished in subtle shades of light and dark honey.
Prevalent from the Middle Ages it reached its zenith during the 17th through the 19th centuries. In the Compagnonnage apprentices first developed technical skills and studied geometrical drawing and design. They then were sent on a “Tour de France’ working with masters throughout the country. Ultimately each produced a “guild masterpiece” or maîtrise demonstrating mastery of joinery cabinetmaking carpentry and design concepts and techniques.
