* Steampunk is a style that combines historical elements with futuristic designs
* Typically features industrial overtones with a 19th-century theme 
* Transform your home with these great steampunk designs 

The Steampunk style mixes 19th century design with new-age design, juxtaposing a past-meets-future style that’s both functional and entirely original. While the Steampunk genre has been (pardon the pun) steadily gaining steam over the last few years, it’s still a relatively unknown genre.

With that said, here are a few ways you can transform your home decor to give it that unconventional touch.

1. Edison-Style String Lights

Inspired by the vintage style of yore, this set of beautiful Edison-modeled string lights come in sets of 10 or 30 and feature a timeless design that works as well indoors as out. These bulbs tend to illuminate a warmer type of glow, which makes them perfect for smaller rooms and tables.

2. Metal and Wood Industrial-Style Stool

Wood meets metal in this charming industrial-style stool. Featuring a smoky metallic finish, this stool adds a sense of modernity to your kitchen or dining room. Plus the super smooth wooden seat help make it both stylish and extra comfy.

3. Set of 3 Nesting Tables

Sporting a zinc and metal finish, this set of three minimal-style tables is small enough to not feel obtrusive but are also versatile enough to accompany almost any desk or tabletop. Plus, they’re easily stackable, so you can bust them out when guests come over.

4. Metal Edge Laptop Desk

Stylishly Steampunk and surprisingly versatile, the minimal laptop desk sports a beautiful walnut wooden top with a sleek, powder-coated metal frame. The futuristic functional design works with most surfaces and makes it even easier to type (or write) from any setting.

5. Entryway Wall Storage

It’s a Steampunk solution to one of life’s biggest problems: where should you store your keys? The rustic wood finish mixed with a minimal (and fully functional) design sports three aged metal hooks and is a nice and stylish way to store your coats, packs, bags and, of course, your car keys.
