Calgary’s Best Home Decor for Dudes

If your idea of décor is a peeling Pink Floyd poster and lamp you “saved” from your neighbour’s trash, it’s time to step up your game. You’re no longer a student; stop living like one. But where to start? Here are five simple places: The things you need for your home, and where to find them.

The Art
Being a man doesn’t mean being pretentious; if movies are what you love, then give your walls some old-school appeal with a framed vintage poster from “Wild Ones” or “Rebel Without a Cause.” Prices vary at The Calgary Movie Poster Shop, 112 16th Ave. N.W., 403-250-7588.

The Rug
The bold geometric prints of a hand-crafted Contemporary Afghan rug will give life to the dullest of rooms. From $600 at Indo Designer Rugs, 620 17th Ave S.W., 403-229-0156.

The Lamp
With rich wood tones and bronze accents, the Royal Marine Tripod Floor Lamp, will add a touch of steampunk elegance to your space. $1145 at Restoration Hardware, 2nd Floor, Southcentre Mall, 403-271-2122.

The Chair
Get closer: Sized perfectly for two and available in over 300 fabrics, from vibrant patterns to sensual microfiber velvets, the only problem with this Nest Chair is that you’ll never want to get up. $939 at Urban Barn, Unit 5, 2500 4th Street SW, 403-245-1031.

The Cabinet
Get Johnny Walker off your coffee table and into this Philmore Liquor Cabinet, which has a deep wood finish and simple lines. $769 at Revolve Furnishings, 7070 11 Street SE, 403-255-8372.
