We’re in the middle of March Madness around here, which means basketball 24/7. This has me thinking how fine it would be if I could create my husband his own individual cave. Both of these words make most women cringe, but I feel the ideal mix of pieces can be found to design a manly area that even we girls could feel joyful about. Here are 20 “masculine” products I would love to utilize to design a man cave within our house.

Home Decorators Collection
Gordon Tufted Sofa, Blue Leather – $999
A timeless Chesterfield couch in blue for under $1,000? At this cost, it may be fun to organize your room with some of these beauties.
Mustache Quote Printing Typography Poster A3 From handz – $19
Every man cave should have a bit of humor. The mustache craze continues with this adorable poster.
Series 11 Six-Drawer Console by Blu Dot – $1,999
Considering that the TV is normally the focus of any man cave, shouldn’t it have a beautiful console on which to sit (or hang above)? This one is the best union of modern and rustic — and provides ample storage for DVDs, games and whatever else you want to hide out.
Geometric – $249.95
A huge bit of colorful artwork is a fantastic addition to any man cave. It gives you a wonderful color palette to work from and will blend well with more personal momentos, sports posters, etc..
Grand Leather Bean Bag Chair – $845
Yes, bean bag chairs are for grown-ups too! Great for lounging and additional chairs, this one comes at a beautiful worn leather.
Arch Floor Lamp – $399.95
I really like the sleek, modern look of the floor lamp. And, its metallic finish gives it a wonderful industrial feel.
Natural Cowhide – $795
What says “manly” just like a cowhide rug? It can also add a good deal of texture into a room and looks great layered over a natural area rug.
Isn’t it a requirement that every man cave possess a recliner (or two)? That being the case, this sleek variation would make a lovely — and comfy along with your space.
Upholstered Cube – $147
These little cubes are so flexible, and look great in a bold pattern. I would use two or even four to serve as an impromptu cocktail table or as additional seating for the big game.
Axel Round Dining Table – $2,160
I would add a round table for game night, cards, etc.. This one just happens to have a midcentury design with gold legs.
Sven Leather Dining Chair – $1,500
A set of those chairs would be great around a round game table. They are sleek and masculine at the same moment.
Shades of Light
De Vine Wood Ball Chandelier – $479
This light is made of woven twisted vines and is certain to be a fantastic conversation piece. It might add a ton of feel and is certainly not a girly chandelier!
Everglades Square Wood Tray 24″ x 24″ – $57.95
This big square menu could be perfect to use for drinks or snacks, particularly sitting on a cocktail ottoman.
Shop Ten 25
Tangerine Ziggy Pillows – $150
Even a man cave deserves a little color. I would add some of those abstract chevron pillows in tangerine.
Fishing Weights – $79
I really like the vintage appeal of those fishing weights. They are perfect as door stops, paper weights or for accessorizing tabletops and bookshelves.
Home Decorators Collection
Cottage Accent Table – $99
End tables are essential for drinks (and remotes). This one is small enough to be tucked into a tight place. Additionally, it is in a fun color and costs less than $100!
Cinni Textured Bronze Desk Fan – $319.91
Guys love their fans, and this one has a great deal of vintage charm. It’s a great way to accessorize a console table and keep cool all at one time.
Sepia Throw, Feather – $250
A striped throw is a good (rather than overly-feminine) method to add pattern to any couch or chair. And, it is going to keep you warm — if he ever invites you to watch TV in his man cave.
Faux Deer Antlers – $39.95
These faux deer antlers in silver are perfect for accessorizing your guy’s space. I would use them on a TV console to get a fantastic sculptural element.
Cost Plus World Market
Campaign Desk – $229.99
This casual desk could double as a sofa table and work space. I enjoy the industrial sense that it might add to a masculine space.
