Personal Spaces

The man cave came about because of the valid need of every person in a household to have a space to call their own. Sometime in the second half of the twentieth century, decorating became the wife’s job, leaving men living in spaces designed by and usually for women. So it’s no wonder they crept down to the basement and hung neon beer signs and curled up in the La-Z-Boy you relegated there soon after moving in together. Everybody needs a space where they feel comfortable, so create a space with furniture scaled just for him. Let him have a recliner if it gives him joy―Restoration Hardware sells surprisingly attractive ones.
