About Steampunk Lamps.

A steampunk lamp is a style of lamp that is designed to fit in with the steampunk aesthetic. They are handcrafted using readily available materials like plumbers’ metal piping and embellished with cogs, gears, valves, and other used or new pieces of gadgetry to give an industrial vintage or Victorian feel. Steampunk lamps are often paired with warm, dim lighting to create an atmosphere of old-world charm.

Building a Steampunk Lamp is a great way to use surplus materials and repurpose anything you may have at hand, like an old vintage car headlamp or an oil can. You can build around an existing lamp or buy cables, switches, lamp holders, and plugs from a DIY shop. Generally, if you can wire a plug, you can wire a free-standing lamp, but please follow all instructions and consult a qualified electrician if you have any doubts.
