LOVE floating stairs. For whatever reason, my unit is the only one in my apartment complex with them, the rest have more traditional and closed in staircases, and it makes such a difference as far as atmosphere and a feeling of openness. Guests compliment them all the time. Mine has a handrail mounted to the adjacent wall and is plenty wide and I've never felt unsafe or scared. I haul things and run up and down them daily, and the cat has the time of her life climbing all over them and peeking out between them. Plus I love the little nook and extra space underneath. I do agree that these would definitely not be for a home with small children, though.

When I studied in Leipzig for a summer, hedgehogs were EVERYWHERE just like squirrels in the U.S., scuttling out of bushes and across pathways. For this reason, I will never ever fall out of love with them, but I'm all for squirrels, too. My school's campus has the friendliest ones I've ever encountered. Sometimes they hop right up on a table by you and ask for a chip.
