It holds palms, books and stereo.

These stairs aren't for people; they're for plants, books, and a stereo system. Salt Lake City architects Stanley Hallet and Robert Hermanson designed the sculptural wall as a storng visual link between the living room and an upstairs balcony of this house in Park City, Utah. It echoes the real stairway on the opposite wall.

The 4- by 12- by 12-foot structure is framed with 2-by-4s and covered with white-painted gypsum board. The 2- by 4- foot platforms rise 14 inches a step. Stereo components fill a cabinet at the low end of the structure.

Four pairs of niches step up the side of the wall; baseboard heaters are below. Clerestory windows ring the room, providing plenty of light for the plants.
