Did you just finish hanging a hard-to-reach houseplant? Worried about how you’ll reach it for weekly waterings? Don’t fret. We’ve found just the thing you’re after.

A new piece from a design favorite, Seattle-based Iacoli & McAllister: a step ladder inspired by the 1920s ladder in the workshop of the designer’s grandfather. The body of the ladder is constructed from a matte black powder coat with brass hinges with two rungs made from pink washed oak treads. The caveat? This is a first look at the ladder which is not yet in production. But considering the popularity of Iacoli & McAllister’s work, we expect to see it in shops soon.


Above: The Step in pink is set to retail at $1,250, a serious price for seriously luxurious construction; Iacoli & McAllister are “only interested in making this stuff in the U.S.”


Above: Two planks of pink washed, hand finished oak in the front.
