This has been mentioned before, but Jon McDougal just mentioned the Steampunk finds currently on offer at Restoration Hardware again, and I thought it merited a post of it's own. One of the neat things about this line is that RH is spotlighting the artisans who design or make these pieces.
I love ALL those items. If price were not a factor, I'd order the whole lot. Thanks for the post!
I keep going to the local Restoration Hardware and running my hands over that furniture-cart coffee table ... but I just can't rationalize spending that much! My battered old steamer-trunk coffee table cost me $50 and some cleaning time, and it serves double-purpose as a hobby-material storage container... :-P
They also have bookends shaped like gears and old typewriters. I love Restoration Hardware!
These are easy to create by hand - no need to spend lavish amounts!
Search on ebay or antique stores for a cool wood tripod, buy a lamp shade and lamp kit, follow lamp kit instructions, and viola! Instant gratification for pretty inexpensively.
Love these pieces. I am a furniture maker and use a few of those factory carts in my shop. I bought a small auction lot of them when a factory closed down in North Carolina. When I was at the factory to pick them up I saw hundreds of them in large, vacant warehouse rooms. For anyone that is a steampunkish do-it-yourselfer, they can still be found inexpensively.
Wisteria (http://www.wisteria.com) has some great pieces (or inspiration) and every once in a while a nice "Steamy" set in their mailer and onsite.
Fairly spendy, but some cheaper accessories.
I love the En Pointe chair - check it out.
Have you seen what they have out now from their new Aviator collection.
