I am so pleased to show you a beautiful carved staircase post at a client’s home!
A lot of you do know that our company Lefèvre Interiors is known for hand-made craftsmanship.
Woodcarving – One of our employees at work.
We are working on the redo of a staircase of one of our clients.
Our client wanted to replace the staircase column by a carved post and asked us for help.
That is the new wooden carved post.
We need to complete painting the steps and stairway, but I couldn’t resist to share with you this part of the redo so far.
I just love the style of the staircase post which fits well with the style of the antique French console table at the entrance hall.
The beautiful antique console table was found at Garnier Antiques.

What do you think about it? I would be very pleased to hear your thoughts!
All photos by me.
God is in the details! Lovely. What a huge difference the new post makes! Unbelievable.
Heel kunstig gedaan! Wat een binnenkomst in deze hal met zicht op deze mooie trap. Hopelijk plaats je ook foto's als de trap volledig af is.
I think it's beautiful. How wonderful to work with such artisans. Your clients must love you.
Bonsoir Greet !
Oui, le pilier d'escalier est maintenant beaucoup plus chic, plus amusant et moins triste ! Tout l'escalier va être peint, j'imagine. C'est un grand changement pour cette entrée ! Bravo !
Oh my, this completely made me say "Wow" out loud! What a difference, Greet. Absolutely gorgeous. I would love to see a final "after" photo if you can!
I just say "OMG" out loud when seeing the new post but I like Heather's comment…WOW!This staircase is going to be a real show stopper. Your employee is a true artist!
A stunning statment to greet a vistor!!
A spectacular change. The entry is more luminous and elegant … a great work.
Hope that you are spending a good week.
It's stunning…can't wait to see it when the stairs are painted. Your client must be thrilled, Greet!!
What a surprising difference this makes. Such a clever touch to make the stair post flare-out almost like a flamboyant invitation to climb the stairs.
This changes the appearance of the entrance hall, that's amazing. What such a small change can do. And that wonderful console fits perfectly.
I wish you a wonderful weekend
Simply stunning, how lovely that such craftsmen still take a pride in their work. Gorgeous hallway too. Lucky clients.
Do I love it? Of course it's very lovely. The carvings are simply fabulous.
It's lovely! Most exquisite and just amazing work! PLEASE show us the final!!!
I'm your newest follower!!

OHHHH GREET!!!!!! From a very nice but traditional staircase to the most SUBLIME Rococo deliciousness I have ever seen!!!!! The fabulous photograph you have taken showing the new sweeping newel post towards the console table and front door is HEAVENLY!!! Do offer my sincere congratulations to your very talented craftsman, it is most certainly a work of art! Huge hugs from an old farmhouse in England – Glenda xxxxxx
Definitely all in the details, right Greet? Just beautiful and so well done. I am also loving and wanting that gorgeous console table and that peek of the lantern….stunning, every single inch!
Wow! Love it!
Greet, you know how much I admire your company and your talent. I know you guys take it very seriously and it shows! It's a piece of art.
Have a great weekend.

PS: Thank you for stopping by and commenting on Brooke's interview. She's truly amazing! 🙂
Breathtaking, Greet! It will stay for centuries. You better make sure there is some company stamp on it!
What a surprise, Greet…
I was not expecting it to be such a different style as what was there before…Love the new one as it's lines are classic in design and not victorian…and yes, it compliments the console table and floors beautifully…
WOW! I'll take two…
You are blessed to have such artisans working in your shop! Will it be fauxed to match the existing rail and spindles (which are pretty cool unto themsleves)or is the handrail going to be white?
Oooooh! That staircase is gorgeous! What a great craftsman, I love it.
Oh, Greet, there is just nothing like what you do. The quality and beauty that you put out into the world is sublime. I for one, and am so grateful.
What an exquisite piece of work,by a master craftsman, who obviously takes great pride in his work. You are fortunate to have such talented people in your company. Well done!
The craftsmanship is stunning. I wish I could spend a lifetime as an apprentice to master artisans like yours. Absolutely beautiful work!
What a transformation, Greet. The staircase post is magnificent.
The carver's workmanship is just stunning. I can see why you are so proud. That skill is so hard to find these days – your company is so lucky to have such greatly talented men. Can't wait to see the staircase finished. Incredible style and curves.
that is amazing work and that staircase is amazing!
only the post does not go together with the 1900 rail!
To my anonymous reader : Yes indeed you are very right! I knew very well but I couldn't convince my client to replace the entire railing! Budget!!!
SOOO BEAUTIFUL! What an inspirational post.
Gorgeous! You must be very proud of your business and employees. Please be sure to show us a pic after it is painted. Thanks
I agree in total with Anonymous's comment and your reply to it, Greet.
What a pity about the budget, really.
Greetings from the Périgord,
Thats a pity !, the staircase newel, baluster is too big and too thick for this stair. It was better to leave the original.Than the house has its correct character. But still very nicely carved.
isn't working with wood wonderful, love the first picture! Showed it to geert immediatly … he followed woodcarving (ages ago) in Mechelen … My grandfather has some beautifull carved pieces from a fellow craftsmen. Back then he worked in a furniture company, and all of the men had their speciality … it's a born talent, a gift you develop troughout the years. lovely staircase Greet!
You've surely proved your creativity here, what you've done was such an inspiration. Very beautiful, everything looks great and amazing.
if i were your client i would not be questioning your work. it is so amazing, i rarely see a handmade woodcraft nowadays. this is good!
