Let’s have a look at sofas, coffee tables and lights because they are the main ones to furnish such a room.
Choosing a sofa be careful: it’s the basis of your living room and it should fit the chosen style. A sofa is often a focal point in every living room, it should be comfortable, stylish and make a cool statement highlighting your style at the same time. A leather sofa is some rich brown, ocher or black is the most popular seating piece for any kind of masculine living room, it looks sexy and chic. Some other cool ideas are a large upholstered corner sofa that can accommodate all your friends or a sectional corner ones in some bold statement color. Chairs, loungers and ottomans can echo with the sofa or be completely different, for example, with sunny yellow upholstery to catch an eye.
A coffee table is another necessary piece for every living room, and coffee tables in a masculine living room should accentuate your décor and style. Industrial metal coffee tables and metal chests with nails and of a rough look are very popular for manly spaces, and the latter may be used for storage, too. Raw wood edge coffee tables can add a natural feel to your interior still looking rather manly. shiny metal coffee tables will make your space more elegant, and glass ones are great for modern living rooms. You can also take several simple ones to accentuate your gorgeous sofa.
Lamps and lights can make a bold statement or makeup the whole room if you choose them right. They may be of a contrasting shade, of a bold material or a unique sculptural shape. Try industrial fixtures with bulbs or pendants, rock whole pendant combos or metal industrial chandeliers to show that it’s a manly space. I also admire colored glass chandeliers in some moody or just calm shades, they add some color to the space and perfectly complement the decor.
