Floating Staircases

There are usually two camps of people when it comes to floating staircases: those who love their architectural design and dream of one day owning one, and those who feel squeamish just looking at them. Floating staircases aren't the safest option, and they're generally a bad idea for homes with children or accident-prone people, but their dangerous beauty is often part of their appeal.
