We have been witnessing the whimsical industrial look of Steampunk décor in kitchen and bath plumbing designs recently.
What is Steampunk ? Think of the industrial and technological innovations of the late 19th century reinterpreted and repurposed with a futuristic spin. The design brings the legacy of the industrial revolution to life in an imaginative way.
Steampunk uses industrial elements prominently in its style. It blends old fashioned curiosities of pocket watches and gramophones with dirigibles and flying machines. It mixes the softness of Victorian sweetness with leather and exposed pipes and ornately carved furniture. Steampunk style is highly tactile. Roughly textured or heavily embroidered fabrics, hammered and distressed metals, and crudely hewn woods, are balanced by a handful of more polished surfaces. Blacks and browns figure prominently in Steampunk looks, as do metallic hues such as silver, gold, pewter, and copper. Rusty reds also speak to the industrial overtones.
Some images of plumbing fixtures that fits nicely into this design category:
