An often overlooked item in many homes is the step ladder. While there are plenty of options on the market for purely functional purposes (the kind that tend to be stored away and out of sight), we like to think “why not make it artful and so good looking that you’ll want to keep it out in your living spaces, leading to more use and overall enjoyment?”. That’s why we love the Lucano Step Ladders by Hasegawa.


Designed in Japan, the Lucano Step Ladders pack quite the punch: simple design, quality materials, solid construction with fluid movement and secure and easy everyday use. They are made of lightweight aluminum and come a variety of colors, perfect for complementing any existing kitchen, library, wardrobe closet, or office style and decor. A fun (and very convenient) design element is that they can stand upright on their own, no need to rest or lay them against a wall. You can literally display your ladder in the center of a room as a piece of art … in fact, we highly encourage that!


We’re not the only ones who love the Lucano Step Ladders; this sleek and practical contemporary design has won awards from German Good Design, Japanese Good Design, and Red Dot Awards.


It brings us so much joy to share them with you in our downtown Raleigh store and here in our webshop. Are you ready to love your step ladder and reach those high shelves in style?
