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.

One thing I love about Steampunk is the blend of otherwise cold industrial furniture with warm wooden antiques. The problem with vintage industrial furniture is that it's just that... vintage. Vintage is expensive.
I was exploring for a new desk or table today and came across the ULINE web site. There's some potential here!
