Every guy needs a room to himself, whether it’s to try out the latest tech or show off barware to his mates.
Here are seven items that will ensure your man cave remains sophisticated and avoids slipping into student territory.
If you need something loud to tune out the noise of everyday life, then the Woburn speaker by Marshall is for you. Just connect your phone by Bluetooth – or even better, the 3.5mm coiled cable – and dial up the volume knob for a powerful and vibrant sound true to Marshall’s name.
The bass is unbeatable, but what we love even more than the audio quality is the classic design that just oozes rock ‘n’ roll cool.
Marshall Woburn Black, available at marshallheadphones.com, priced £499.
Join The Club
Channel your inner Don Draper with this hand-finished whisky decanter by LSA International. The walnut base will not only look the part in your man cave, but also keep the condensation off your Canadian Club for optimal quality.
Pouring yourself a stiff one after a long day will now be that bit more satisfying.
LSA International Conical Whisky Decanter With Base, aAvailable at John Lewis, priced £85.
Let There Be Light
When it comes to lighting your man cave, you need something impressive. Enter the CSYS by Dyson – possibly the most hyped lamp of the century.
The “3 Axis Glide Motion” design inspired by construction cranes makes the lamp a pleasure to adjust and admire. What’s more, the energy efficient LED lights are cooled using heating pipe technology typically found on satellites, meaning you won’t have to change a bulb for 37 years.
CSYS Desk Black/Silver, available at dyson.co.uk, priced £399.
Take Care Of The Pennies
…and the pounds will take care of themselves.
This cast aluminium money bank based on a British factory from the industrial revolution is not only a perfect place to keep those pennies, but also an everyday reminder that if you look after the little things in your life, they can add up to something much bigger.
Cast Factory Money Box, available at tomdixon.net, priced £71.25.
Fit For A King
Known as the Rolls Royce of candles, Cire Trudon has been in production since 1643 and has supplied the French elite from Napoleon to the royal family. And if it’s fit for a French Emperor, then it deserves a place in your man cave.
We recommend the Ernesto, a leather and tobacco scented option. That way if you have a cheeky cigar and your other half walks in, you can always blame it on the candle.
The fragrance features woody notes with hints of rum and bergamot and the candle looks just as good as it smells with its hand-blown glass case and signature gold emblem.
Ernesto Tobacco And Leather Scented Candle, available at Mr Porter, priced £62.
Man’s Best Friend
Whether it’s to switch off with a game of FIFA or to switch on for Game of Thrones season six, you’re going to need a top-notch television in your man cave.
We’ve done the legwork for you and found the ultimate TV: 4K, 3D, 65″, Curved, OLED, Smart. Need we say more? The LG 65EG960V doesn’t have any shortcomings, and judging by its rather hefty price tag, it knows it.
LG 65EG960V, available at John Lewis, priced £5,999.
We understand the LG 65EG960V won’t be in everyone’s budget, but that’s not to say your TV should fall short on benefits. Try the LG 49UF695V for a scaled-down price without a scaled-down resolution.
LG 65EG960V, available at John Lewis, priced £849.
Go Hell For Leather
Finally, you’re going to want a pretty comfy chair in your man cave to watch whatever TV you opt for. This saffron tan leather armchair has a cocktail lounge feel about it; perfect for kicking back in with your whisky on the rocks.
Just make sure to get hold of some quality protection spray, as let’s face it, you’re going to be spending some serious time sat in it.
Leather Lounge Chair, available at rockettstgeorge.co.uk, priced £540.
