I believe that Steampunk is more than just brass and watchparts. It's finding a way to combine the past and the future in an aesthetic pleasing yet still punkish way. It's living a life that looks old-fashioned, yet speaks to the future. It's taking the detritus of our modern technological society and remaking it into useful things. Join me as I search for items for my house that combine the scientific romanticism of the Victorians with our real present and imagined future.

Maggi Massimo is Magnifico!
Maggi Massimo is an Italian maker of kitchen cabinets and other furniture...
A "hold everything" with brass bin pulls.
Love the round port hole style vents in this cabinet.
Wooden louvered doors in the upper right and left cabinets add character.
A safe! In the middle of your cabinet! I think it's just waiting for the bank robbers to show up.
