So I'm Industrial Chic (with a Dash of Steampunk)

After a review of the Restoration Hardware catalog and a look at the Steampunk Home blog I am certain that my design style is Industrial Chic with a strong dash of Steampunk. I've been assembling the elements for this style for years. There is nothing better than finding a piece of Victorian industrial debris. I have always desired the "digital meets Jules Verne" inspiration of the Steampunk ethos.

I brought a wonderful industrial restaurant preparation table into Gypsy Lea's for the November sale. It is fantastic. And I have to admit that I will not be devastated if it doesn't sell. I have just the place for it the atrium facing the lake at my house.

I've been assembling the pieces to make some cool industrial lighting fixtures to match up with the table. And the Steampunk conversion of a Victorian pump organ into a computer console is still scheduled for this winter.

I agree with Kathy - that would make a perfect work table / cutting table! Add some cinder blocks to the bottom... it'd be just my style...

haha! ;-D

Unlike Kathy and Robelyn, I don't care what you do with it. Heck. Throw my chairs around it if you'd like and kick up your feet on it. But, keep it! It rocks! ~Mindy
