The client approached us with the following brief: turn an existing room into a fully functional man cave, which was to be presented as a birthday gift for her husband.
Even though this project may have been a challenge for others, it was nothing more than an opportunity for us to showcase what we are capable of.
Clever touches in the form of decorative pieces ensure a strong dose of character, making the man cave not only welcoming and personal, but seemingly lived in.
Wooden blinds in umber brown add to the space's earthy scheme while also keeping incoming sunshine and prying eyes at bay.
As a lot of relaxing and lounging was going to take place in here, the man cave had to be furnished with proper furniture pieces. Thus, this comfortable L-shape sofa that is just the right balance between rugged and elegant.
A stone-grey colour palette reminds us that not all masculine spaces need to be covered in blue from floor to ceiling!
A circular coffee table, in raw wood, offsets quite nicely with the linear look of the sofa and side table.
In addition to the corner sofa, amenities and luxuries were also included in the final design, such as the wall-mounted television and the glass case containing various treats like a coffee machine and snacks, glasses, and mugs.
No matter if it's a rich collection of DVDs, books, CDs, or just some keepsakes picked up on travels, this timber bookcase is the ideal addition to store and display them!
Perfectly fitting into this corner, the open-style bookcase also serves as a visual piece showcasing where the man cave starts / ends, neatly separating it from the enjoining area.
