It’s Millennial M.E., and my mission is the same: to make antiques accessible to my generation.
But I’ve been thinking about another target population that might be just as skittish about antiques…
That’s right, fellas. I’m calling you out in your Man Caves.
You might be like me. When I think about antiques, I picture a pair of pink, yellow, and green striped silk chairs (with big poufy cushions) that sat, virtually unused, in my grandmother’s living room. Not exactly “man cave” pieces.
Luckily, I’ve learned at Palladio that antiques and vintage pieces come in all shapes and sizes; they can work just as well in my grandmother’s living room as they can in any style Man Cave.
With the help of a few of the male staff at Palladio Home & Garden, I’ve pulled together some Man Cave worthy pieces from our stores!
For the Professor’s Man Cave:
For the Hemingway readers and Wall Street Journal junkies: This is the chair of your personal library dreams!
This beautiful leather armchair (with a matching Chesterfield sofa and ottoman) pairs perfectly with scotch and cigars and leather bound books… or at least, that’s my idea of the old school man cave! Make sure to visit Palladio Antiques to see this full set!
For the Ultimate Fan’s Man Cave:
Sports lovers, look no further.
Palladio Crafted uses amazing reclaimed materials to create unique projects- it could be a table made out of the White Station High School bleachers, or bar counter that used to be a bowling lane.
Just imaging paneling the walls of a man cave or game room with this reclaimed gymnasium flooring from the Ole Miss Field House!
For the Golf Pro’s Man Cave:
The piece that inspired this post: this fabulous wastepaper basket made out of old golf club grips! I discovered this gem at Palladio Antiques! If this doesn’t scream man cave or office, I don’t know what does! It’s the perfect gift for your golfing guy!
Pro Tip: Is there a golfer in your life with a milestone coming up? Fill this golf club basket with a new baseball cap, club cover, and a couple of packages of golf balls. It’s the perfect gift, and no gift wrap needed!
For the Craft Brewer’s Man Cave:
Add some old world inspiration to the walls of your man cave with this distillery sign found at Palladio Interiors!
This Malt Shovel sign is a staff favorite! Here is a totally unique piece that will add interest and create instant conversation in a man cave, library, or den.
This is a perfect example of alternative wall furnishings and art that will enliven any space!
