We'll be trying to answer some Design Dilemma questions we receive all the time. Here's a common one: "Dear Lucketts Store: We are building a man cave for my husband. I love antiques and vintage items. He can't see past the big screen t.v. and a Lazy Boy. Help! How can I incorporate some antiques into the space so there is a little more character and style in the room? Sincerely, Caved-In"
Answer: Dear Caved-In, Tell him that antiques aren't just polished wood and doilies. There are lots of pieces to choose from that are attractive and functional (e.g., trunks, industrial bins) that I think he'd be happy with. When shopping, be on the lookout for old sporting goods items, or better yet, see if your husband has his old baseball glove and work that into your room. Here are a few options from our Design Notebook. The pictures were taken at The Old Lucketts Store or our Design House and reflect items we try to find and buy up on our travels. Good Luck! Your Friends at The Old Lucketts Store.
More importantly, what vintage accessories would YOU, our readers, put in a man cave?
If you have a question for us or a Design Dilemma that you'd like help solving, please write a comment to this post and we'll try to feature it in a future blog post.
