I Love my Men's Den! (continued)

I love to use leather seating with a double down fill for added comfort. If leather isn’t an option, the hottest trend right now is Crypton Fabrics. Previously, it was mainly used in medical and commercial furniture for it’s spill-proof capabilities and high-traffic durability. Now, Crypton is manufactured in gorgeous home fabrics with affordable applications.

For feature furniture in the Men’s Den, I love the Vanguard ottoman with an insert for beverages or, as one of my client’s use it for, an ice bucket! Another designer trick is hiding a mini-fridge in a stylish cabinet. Men tend to lean towards brown and beige colors—I combine that with grey and blue tones to give it an updated look.

These days, everything comes with a remote, so a stylish remote caddy is mandatory. The biggest remote in the caddy is for your man’s top necessity—the XL flat screen. What he may not realize is the importance of how it’s fashioned! A stylish media center is the difference between the “cave” and the Den.

For additional visual comfort, I recommend the motorized double shade. Press the first button to roll out the 5% solar shade for daytime card playing or conversation, then press the second to transition to a blackout shade to eliminate glare for a more comfortable Netflix binge. Keeping the shade simple & contemporary creates the illusion of a larger space.

Most men love playing games—it’s a time for comradery and socialization. At least one featured game area should be in the Men’s Den room setting.

We know our men love recliners, or a large chair and ottoman. I recommend shopping trips to make sure the comfort and style works for your man’s personality. There are many stylish recliners available. I often use this custom Lazar Furniture piece shown above.

The most important thing to consider is your man’s individuality—what he feels is important for his comfort, leisure, and fun. Remember, the Men’s Den is a place in which he takes pride—a place he wants to keep inviting us back to. ■ BY MARYA FLURNOY
