    Nathaniel Russel house floating staircase.
    Gorgeous. Love floating staircases. This is great. Edit: I scanned a pic I have of it from a slightly different angle. [​IMG]

    Looks very similar to the old stacks at the Royal Library in Denmark. The ones pictured are in nicer condition though.

    There's a particularly cool marble flying spiral staircase in the US Supreme Court building - actually, I think there may be two identical ones.

    not the "best I have ever seen" necessarily, but I love this staircase.

    I also like the one from Gattaca. Simple yet elegant.
