THE MALE INTERIOR
The greatness of a well-established male interior is as versatile as it is handsome.
Over the last few seasons, menswear and homewares have had some very pleasant crossovers — such as the Acne Studios and Rick Owens furniture collections (amazing). This got us thinking…Men’s and interiors are really having a moment right now! When walking into a male’s home with good taste, the first thing that resonates is that the space feels collected, not so much “decorated.” In order to accomplish such an appreciated vibe, one must build slowly and thoughtfully. While there is certainly a stance between masculinity and durability, furniture and accessories tend to work best when they delicately straddle this idea alongside softness and personality.
Everyone needs an accent chair! This black Butterfly Chair, designed by Barnaby Lane, is full volume sophistication. It’s deep setting and velvety leather make it timeless, while the overall structure provides just the right amount of contemporary flair.
Created by Globe West, the Elle Hexagon Coffee Table adds unique shape and subtle style to the center of any lounge room. Available in Matte Grey Marble with Black frame, or Matte White Marble with Stainless Steel or Brass frame, the muted colour and textural combinations this piece offers is both edgy and sleek.
How amazing is this vibe created by Real Living featuring our Design Twins Lightweight pots? Of course plants are unisex, but how do you incorporate a large pot into your home that has character without being too vivid? Something such as our hand-painted Crown Pot, in quiet tones, embraces a manly appearance while also incorporating the natural elegance that is greenery.
Ah! Storage. It could either be the demise of your decor, or a pinnacle accompaniment. We love these wire baskets, available in a variety of sizes. They’re so simple, yet look great and provide space for throw blankets, laundry, towels, sneakers, etc.
All to often, a guys look becomes synonymous with “over industrial.” It doesn’t have to be! Take this desk lamp, for example, it’s open-faced design and timber makeup is interesting and approachable.
