Steampunk is a cool, eclectic genre that encompasses many styles of furniture, but what makes it so special is the sheer number of unique and creative ways you can use it.
The style originated in Europe in the 1920s, and today, steampunk houses are all the rage, with designers, artists, and artists all trying to make something unique and interesting out of the old, rustic materials.
Whether it’s using reclaimed wood for furniture, building a futuristic, steampowered home from the original designs of the steampunk era, or using the world’s most exotic plants for furniture decoration, steams are a perfect home decor theme.
Here are 10 of our favorite steampunk home designs to add to your decor.
