•An imaginary Victorian age, that features brass and copper clockwork and steampowered inventions that go far beyond 1800's technology. Steam powered mechanical wonders, optimistic gear driven computers, dirigibles, clockwork firsts, and stuff like that. (But don't forget the goggles.
•Victorian Science Fiction that has dark & ominous tones, often where technology is an enslaving force and the main characters are fighting against the oppressive establishment. Cyberpunk with steam technology.
And here is a nod to steampunk at Binky la Faye
My friends Sarah Kammlah and Cecilia Berber-Thayer design some Fabulous Steampunk style furniture It's called Kammlah-Thayer for Carol Hicks Bolton. It's all made in the U.S.A. and has hand done detail work, I am proud to say that I made some of the pillows and lighting in the collection. Here are some pics of their showroom in High Point, North Carolina.
Great stuff huh? So go dig up some old factory cogs, dust off the industrial metal cart, pull out the the old pocket watches, goggles, and leather bound books and create your own nod to steampunk!!!
I will show you some of the other incredible looks from the Kammlah-Thayer for Carol Hicks Bolton Line in another post.
Thanks for stopping by.
