The perfect man cave means something different to every guy, but there are a few essentials that never change. It’s got to be comfortable, relaxing, and fun. It’s got to be up to the challenge of accommodating guests and equally pleasant to spend precious time alone in. But that doesn’t mean your man cave has to resemble the shed or basement to which dads once banished themselves. Indulge yourself, or the man in your life, with furnishings that are both masculine and modern.
Give your TV and game consoles the home they deserve, and embrace a life without visible wires and clutter. Contemporary wall units like Open and Caccarro’s Roomy offer lots of configuration options, provide storage for any physical media, and can be customized to fill an entire wall in your cave. Prefer something a little more compact? Opt for a great looking TV stand or freestanding entertainment unit like the BDI Corridor Quad-Wide Media Cabinet.
If you’re lucky enough to have a bar or bar table in your man cave, accentuate with a line of stylish bar stools, like the Eclipse. Lack the space for a full bar? No problem! A bar cart allows you to keep a full complement of bottles and bartending equipment handy and bring the bar to your guests, rather than vice versa. A bar table, like the Grand Canal 55 with its small footprint, is another space saving option for entertainers. At the other end of the scale, the Fusion billiard table doubles as a generously proportioned dining table and comes with a game cloth for poker nights.
Personalize your man cave with a large, striking light fixture that exudes modern, masculine style, like the intriguing, almost organic form of the Annika Chandelier, the abstract ‘swooshes’ that make up the Speedform Chandelier, or the hefty Zeppelin Suspension Light, available with or without fabric covering.
Say goodbye to the battered old armchair of the past, and upgrade to a comfortable and stylish American Leather design, like the Fallon Comfort Recliner. Roomy sectional seating lets you piece together a zone for relaxation and conversation that perfectly fits your space. Solid and versatile designs that we love include the Maxx, the Grant, and the Oliver. As far as upholstery goes, think dark, moody and/neutral colors in low-maintenance fabrics or classic leather.
