Whether or not you live in an Eichler, you can still choose the no frills and enduring design of midcentury modern in your man cave. With classics in every corner, you can replicate the look with originals, replicas or a mix of both.
The Treluci Piccolo floor lamp designed by Robert Sonneman is a staple of MCM for its sculptural functionality. Sonneman is called “Lighting’s Modern Master,” and it’s easy to see why. Find this version at Fantasy Lighting LA or in white at YLighting.
When you think fiberglass chairs, Eames is rightly the first name that comes to mind. Fortunately, the enduring popularity of the molded fiberglass chairs means you can save by going for a replica, such as this fiberglass rocker from jet.com. This can hold you over until you serendipitously stumble upon an original in your price range at an estate sale.
The Eames Storage Unit typifies the linear, multi-purpose functionality that characterizes the midcentury. Find the original design over at hivemodern.com or a less expensive replica at sites such as Luxe Decor. Alternatively, if you’re intent on originals, you can collect one piece at a time and build up the modular unit over time. Visit Herman Miller to see the separate parts.
This Florence Knoll Parallel Bar Three-Seat Sofa in a red wool upholstery is perfect for a Midcentury Modern man cave with its minimalist profile and confident hue. Find the original design at 1stdibs. If you balk when you realize a minimalist design does not mean minimalist price, then hop over to Joybird for a more budget-friendly sofa that still clearly says MCM with its linear, armless profile and bold red.
