et·som·ni·a (/etˈsämnēə/), noun, 1. a sleep disorder caused by obsessive Etsy browsing. 2. the surprising arrival of weird handmade merchandise ordered in one’s sleep.
I love a lot of different styles. My taste runs the gamut from Asian to rustic to high Art Deco and Art Nouveau to Mission to pop art to Victorian (used sparingly) and I can appreciate at least a little of nearly every style in between. However, Tuesday’s post about Cyborg Fashion has put me in the mood for another of my faves, industrial design.
For the record, I did try to find some industrial sheesh to go with our industrial chic, but I am both tickled and a little disappointed to report I basically couldn’t find any. Turns out that if you encase it in steel and give it a brushed finish, I’m in. Of course, once I expanded my search to include “steampunk,” all kinds of dopey stuff turned up, but I mostly resisted the urge to include it.
As usual, the seller’s name below the picture links to the item for sale. For more Etsy fun, check out all my weekly Etsomnia™ posts (which are typically much more snarky)!
