Jake Von Slatt seems to discover the coolest items in the world of Steampunk. Like this Victorian Organ Command Desk created by the people who run ModVic Home Restoration, Bruce and Melanie Rosenbaum:
That’s a salvaged antique organ that has been turned into a computer desk. Amazing work from the Rosenbaums. This piece announces their offshoot company, Steampuffin, described by the Rosenbaums as “a website being developed that will offer unique ‘Steampunk’-inspired architectural salvage and antique items, project ideas and modified Steampunk Victorian modern appliances and inventions to high-end Steampunk enthusiasts, home restorers and designers.”
If that doesn’t get you excited, I simply don’t know what will.
But if you are like me and are thrilled to pieces at the sight of this Command Desk and remember my old post about the Rosenbaum’s Steampunk inspired home, you will be thrilled to know that they are opening it up for a pubic viewing on Sunday, May 2 from 1 to 4 PM. The house is in Sharon, MA, so if you live on the east coast (or your life will be incomplete without viewing this home) I sincerely recommend paying the paltry 20 dollars to see this house in person.
Advance order tickets can be purchased at the Museum, 16 High St. Sharon, MA 02067. Checks should be made payable to the “Sharon Historical Society.” On the day of the tour, tickets will be available at all five of the homes, and at the Museum. You can call the Society at 781-784-9966 or Gary Sullivan at 617-974-1141 for more information.
