Horizontal stair railing - trendy or timeless?

5 years ago

Our interior designer recommended a horizontal metal stair railing with wood handrail for our new construction, Pacific Northwest modern style home. I was uncertain, but she really strongly recommend it, and I did like the mock-up she did. It would be similar in style to the first picture below.

I’m now having second thoughts. I’m concerned this might be a trendy, and thus soon-to-be-dated look. Perhaps we would be better served by a more modern look vertical railing, like the second or third pictures. I’d love others thoughts on this.
