MASCULINE & INDUSTRIAL – A SHOW WITH CHARACTER
We can also notice that the masculine style is often very close to the industrial style. The masculine decoration is broader than the “simple” industrial decoration. We will have different eras and not just industrial codes, ie used wood and metal or even brick and raw materials. We keep this worn, goal, grunge, and damaged side. The old site that has lived. We find the idea of depth which is for once relative to time. We will have solid materials and objects that have already lived through several decades and which can still last for at least half a century. The patina of time is more important than accumulation.
MASCULINE & MINIMAL – A FAIR AROUND THE ESSENTIALS
The big question of what is essential and what is not. It’s hot to talk about a gendered decor style without going into stereotypes. We would say that a guy knows more easily what is essential in his daily life and does not burden himself with what is unnecessary. Sounds easier for guys, doesn’t it? Dear sirs, if you pass by, we would be curious to have your point of view! In the meantime, what is essential in the living room?

Focus only on the essential does not mean giving up the decor. It is less present but it has more meaning.
HOW TO CREATE A MASCULINE LIVING ROOM DECOR WITHOUT MAKING A MISTAKE?
THE LEATHER SOFA AND / OR THE CLUB CHAIR
Although there is not a key color for a successful masculine decoration in the living room, there are still some essentials such as leather in general. A cognac leather sofa weathered by time. A club chair is also worn and magnified by time. The timeless and robust side of the leather in the seats seems essential to me. It is also genuine and it can be intense.
MALE ESSENTIAL: DESIGNER PIECES
Another essential for adopting a masculine look in the living room: designer pieces. This large category of furniture and decorative accessories is vast and leaves you in the dark. We grant you. There is no such thing as an absolute chair. What we like about the design and that we find in male decors is the combination of functionality and aesthetics. It is beautiful and practical in short. The design can be vintage. It can also be re-edited which is nicer for our wallet. It can also be contemporary and modern. In our history of men’s living room, we can think of the iconic Lounge Chair and Ottoman by Eames with its cherry wood shell and the leather of its seat.
GREAT IMPORTANCE IN THE CHOICE OF MATERIALS
Finally, for a successful decoration with masculine accents, it is essential to look at the materials that will compose your interior. They are the ones who will bring character and intensity to your room.
