Male style authority GQ
rounded up the six items ever man needs
in his home and we must say, we agree with most of them. The key components to a sophisticated, masculine space (like the one above, designed by Wick Design
) will ensure your bachelor pad is more George Clooney in Ocean's 11
and less Jonah Hill in Superbad
. Read on for our favorite takeaways and where to get them.
||The Ultimate Lounger
"The elevated version of a La-Z-Boy recliner is -- without a doubt -- the Eames lounger," says the mag, and we would have to concur. Modern lines, a mix of soft leather and textured wood, and classic style make this masculine chair and ottoman pair the quintessentially manly luxury item, perfect for a library or office.

According to the GQ, it's time to ditch the red Solo cups in favor of the proper vessel for your chosen brew. Just as certain wines require certain glassware, your craft beers require the same attention. A fraternity house, this is not.

"The key to keeping taxidermy tasteful is moderation," GQ says. "No modern man's home should have a wall-mounted zoo." Limit your look-alike pieces to mounted horns or antlers or even faux busts for a dose of wilderness appeal without a full-on hunting lodge aesthetic.
