When designer Luchetti Krelle was asked to create a New York style loft bar to Asian style Tapis on an extremely limited budget he went way out of the box, creating a moody but, warm bar from recycled materials and just a touch of steampunk thrown in for interest.
This bar features old brick walls with crates for shelving. Recycled thick wood planking form the bottom of the bar itself, and the floors have been stripped down to the concrete layer.
Part of the ceiling is covered in dark chain link fences form which small glass globed lights hand from the chain link. Stool made from wood and metal line the bar and serve as seating around the tables.
Large copper piping adds a touch of steampunk style to the overall décor, The large pipes in the bathroom carrying water to the sink as well as having lights attached reminds one of those old steam pipes and lights from earlier times and goes well with the overall old fashioned theme of the bar.
By using recycled materials in the décor of this bar, Krelle has created a comfortable old fashioned feeling environment where anyone would feel comfortable stopping by for a drink or two. Visiting this bar will remind you of sitting and watching television in your favorite old recliner or putting on those favorite old slippers that you love to much to throw out, even though there are newer ones sitting in the closet. There is just something about the overall warmth of this décor that is sure to draw you to this bar.
While this is not the type of place one visits if they want to see a full-fledged steampunk décor the bar is worth visiting for those who are interested in seeing how a few steampunk elements can add to almost any type of décor.
