    Looks like Iron or Wrought Iron to me. - Blacksmith or maybe DIY Store.

    Looks like a bunch of different size pipe cut and welded together making the baluster section . Nice looking I have to say.
    If you looking to make you stair case different that would do it . Make sure it goes wit the rest of your decor so it doesn't look out of place.
    You could pull your wall decor in to it by making the same design out of PVC pipe cut to sizes like that and framing it on a wall . Paint it a different color .
    You could also make that design to put pictures in it and frame it with a plexi glass on the front. Just leave the smaller circles empty or put special little things in those holes . Maybe something a child or family member who's picture you placed in the frame gave you or made even beads or something like that
    a few Ides to bring rooms together with the stairs or just the walls around the staircase.

      Thank you . I loved the picture frame Idea after posting it . I just might do something like it myself on a smaller scale for a wall with the PVC pipe . But I bet my Husband wouldn't like cutting pipe for me lol. I would just use PVC glue to put them together or hot glue . The frame will hold them to .

    I remember this style from Pinterest!
    Here's how it's made... Bshuh was right with PVC.

    And here's how to cut PVC pipes : Personnally, for a project needing so many cuts, I would certainly try my miter saw!
