Introducing Man Cave Monday: Leather Chairs
Men, on the other hand, tend to want just one place where they can retreat. And every guy has a different idea of what he wants to accomplish there--watch sports, scratch body parts, play poker, drink beer, smoke cigars, but most of all recline in an enormous, perfectly worn-in leather chair that leaves him smelling like a freshly tanned cowhide.
For that reason, I'm debuting the first installment of "Man Cave Monday." Each week will feature a man cave must-have. This week: the leather man chair.
I don't have a designated man cave myself, but I've been rethinking my own living room and spent a crazy amount of time this summer conducting extensive research on leather chairs, trolling Craigslist and furniture sites. The idea: To have one in time for football season. Mission accomplished.
Here are some of my favorites + the one I chose:
This Pottery Barn chair--called the Manhattan Leather Club Chair--is pretty much the ultimate.
And because nothing beats the look and feel of lived-in leather, here's a vintage-inspired chair from the U.K.'s Rose & Grey furniture company:
Feast your eyes also on the Kensington Leather Chair from Restoration Hardware, said to "evoke the grand gentleman's club tradition."
Lastly, here's the chair I found at Sprintz. I went with more contemporary lines, and it is now my ultimate man chair for football weekends, the missing ingredient I needed to make my house feel like a castle.
