Finally, a design trend custom tailored to you, gentlemen. Menswear-inspired home décor is hot this season, meaning your flat can look as dapper as you in a three-piece suit. This look is all about traditionally male fabrics and patterns — grey flannel and tweed, houndstooth and herringbone — applied to diverse objects such as walls, sofas and dishware. Here, five menswear-inspired items to outfit your home in sartorial style.
Audrey Charcoal Wallpaper by Marcel
Are you man enough to wallpaper an entire room in plaid? Even in a subdued grey, this wallpaper packs punch. It’s entirely modern and traditional all at once — like an Englishman’s suit. If a whole room of plaid is too much pattern for your tastes, go for just one wall as a feature detail. (Cough, wimp.) $57
Slipper Sofa in Paul Smith’s Bespoke Stripe
Paul Smith is the quintessential menswear fashion designer, which makes this made-to-order sofa upholstered in his Bespoke Stripe fabric a choice piece for this trend. With a hint of Smith’s signature multistripe, this pinstripe offers a playful twist on refinement. $2,500
Henry Chocolate/Taupe Cushion
In 100% Italian cashmere, this herringbone throw cushion will make naps on the couch 1,000% better. Not that we condone you smooshing your mug into this high-class fabric; we just know you won’t be able to help yourself. Have you ever tried to not feel up cashmere? $395
Maxwell & Williams Art Deco Houndstooth Cup and Saucer
Morning brew just got more sophisticated with this houndstooth-emblazoned cup-and-saucer set. The black-and-white set is also available in tartan, checks, paisley, stripes and dots, for endless mix-and-match options. $18
Area Bedding in Heather Grey
Just like your favourite shirt, this cotton bedding will become a can’t-live-without staple. Designed by Swedish-born New Yorker Anki Spets, Area bedding is high quality and made to last. Even a little rumpled and worn, it looks dashing. $87
