Steampunk Furniture Choices for the Home

by paperfacets

Have you decided that steampunk can be an investment to actually live-in everyday? I mean putting elements into the living spaces of the home. It can be a collecting experience.

This is your browsing site for steampunk furniture. The home furnishing ideas are divided up into living room, bedroom, office and other general use areas like den and family room.

These home furnishings are picked from general online sellers and represent only what may work for steampunk decorating in my estimation. The hardcore artist concept can not be found unless the fan starts exploring artist's works. Explore artist's ideas about the genre at Etsy and ebay.

The basic genre is mostly an imaginative pursuit and my ideas are a stepping stone to spark your imagination and get you rolling into creating your own look for every day living in this fun style.

Contemporary Furniture Sellers


The popular named home decor retailers such as Restoration Hardware and Pottery Barn are fun to browse on ebay. Many items are new and still in the packaging.

A rocker like this one is certainly an investment. To my eye it sure looks like the steam sensibility. Start at these sellers for ideas.

Explore Restoration Hardware on eBay

Restoration Hardware has always showcased vintage look furniture and now they have brought in the industrial and steampunk looks. Shop for these high-end items on eBay and save on the items you want to most. 

The links below will get you there fast.

The Regency Sofa

Tucked leather in red seems so perfected for steam. Start with this in an office or livingroom and go with the home decor accents to round out the look your want to arrive at.

It can be a collector's journey with odd and wonderful looking items browsed from artists on eBay and Etsy. One year I was wild for alarm clocks and amassed a sizable collection that now resides in boxes. Never mind that out come, I had a lot of fun choosing the collection. 

The Living Room or Parlor

Put the precious art pieces collected on these examples above for the parlor. The Victorian era or Mod-Vic can be exploited, but also contemporary like the Powell wall console is a possibility. 

Some General Ideas to Start With

1. Start with one room at a time or you will be over whelmed with expense. A woman fan may start with the comfort room, the bathroom. The bathroom will need fixtures from the turn of the century with the big soaking tub.

2. If you have art pieces or a home decor accessories collection amassed start with the living room or den to showcase them to your visitors. The male in the house might do a long awaited man cave with these items.

3. Begin in the bedroom with colors and fabrics gleaned from fashions and costumes. Use hat stands on dressers, hooks on walls to hang costume belts, weapons, and coats. Open boxes displaying necklaces, rings and jewelry. Place a repro telephone on the nightstand.

4. The kitchen could have on old stove and lots of copper.  Table and chairs will be fun to shop for.

5. Do not forget the patio and backyard for summer parties. Accessorize with a string of Edison bulb lights. 

Are You Going to Decorate with Turn of the Century Science Fiction?

Is Steampunk The Next Choice?

The Office Study or Den

Keep in mind the choices I have picked from Amazon are an illustration of main stream looks that can be incorporated into a steampunk home just being developed. These are the looks that can be affordable. If you go to Amazon, the search "steampunk" will not give you furniture. This is why I developed this guide. 

Round out the room with the artist creations. The more expensive one of a kind items can be added to as the household's true collectible pieces.

Revisiting your wizzley called to mind something that I'd meant to emphasize with the first reading.

In particular, I like the wall-mounted industrial pipe shelving. It serves as both something functional and as a wall decoration.

Would you happen to know if the pipes tend to be new or repurposed?

paperfacets, What do you recommend for the dining room?
