As ladylike as we can be over at Caitlin & Caitlin, we have a serious penchant for masculine-oriented design. Dark paint, chesterfields and plaid are all part of our decorating go-to's, so with Father's Day fast approaching, we thought it would be the perfect time to present to you a round-up of "dad-inspired" design. And if you're an exceptionally sweet progeny, feel free to use it as a proper gift guide!
Our personal favorites:
-The Papa Bear chair by Hans Wegner is perfectly named for the occasion, even though Father's Day wasn't an official holiday until Nixon signed off on it in 1972--well after this mid-century classic was created.
-Any vintage artwork (like the portrait shown here) that conveys a sense of sophistication, history and whimsy.
-Manly-themed objects made of brass make for a fun juxtaposition between concept and material that brightens and refines any room.
-Though a must for any study, it's so hard to find a good globe! This one is unique with its tulip base and pop-art paint job.
