A man needs a cave, and a man-cave should be furnished and decorated to a man’s exact specifications, whether that means his special haven of masculinity is a carefully curated Playboy After Dark-ish den featuring suave set pieces, lava lamps and framed autographed photos of sports stars and cover models, or simply a comfy private zone where he can play a guitar in peace and have a drink with a favorite guy pal. The important thing to know is that a man’s cave is his own special zone, a “Mancturary” if you will, and nothing should interfere with the sanctity of that temple of masculinity.

Having said all that, a man cave does need to be furnished. The idea of the man cave is to give that guy a place he can call his own, outside of the rest of the home which is pretty much ruled by the lady of the house. There are some essential pieces that he’ll need in his man cave however, so let’s start with those.
1. Coordinating couch and lounge chairs.
A couch is a great piece to ground a man cave, and a couch that is very comfortable, preferably made in a soft fabric (or leather) with pillows is ideal for those nights when a man needs a space to watch a game or play cards with his bros. A couch that also folds out can be handy for those nights when a guy really needs his own space, or to accommodate a bro who’s visiting from out of town. A reclining lounge chair that matches the couch is also a great idea, as it adds that extra element of relaxation to the cave experience.
2. Industrial Coffee Table
A coffee table is also a must for centering the man cave, and giving the man of the house a place to set his drinks and snacks for his guy friends. An industrial coffee table from www.hudsonfurniture.com.au makes for an ideal coffee table that offers clean lines and a sense of integrity to the man cafe.
3. Bar Area
A wet bar is another asset to a man cave, as it really sets the mood of the place as as a place to entertain without having to leave the confines of the man area. A free standing bar in handsome wood with fold out doors is a great way to create a bar area in the cave. Add a raised table and some padded bar stools and you’ve got everything needed to create an amazing cave experience. Throw in a pool table and a humidor and you’ve got a special retreat you may never want to leave. But isn’t that what having a cave is all about?
