The new ‘in’ color palette. Music video themes. Commercial space renovations. Each of these show the influence of steampunk entering the mainstream aesthetic consciousness.
Steampunk entering the mainstream makes our lives better because it provides great exposure for the aesthetic and helps to grow our community.
Often the marketing efforts don’t come right and call something steampunk, but we can see the influences that the creativity of our community has on mainstream design.
Crate and Barrel has a new copper palette line of cups and dishes, Pottery Barn has several lamps in a steampunk style, and other home fixtures are making their way to market.
In the commercial area, there are offices, pubs, and coffee shops
Three Rings Office
Toothsome Chocolate Emporium
6Sense – Romania
Steampunk Bar in Zagreb
Edison in Orlando
In music videos, non-steampunk singers and groups use the steampunk aesthetic, too.
Lindsey Stirling – Roundtable Rival
Panic at the Disco – Mona Lisa
Alkaline Trio – Help Me
How does the steampunk influence on mainstream usage make your life better?
