Interior furnishings aren’t just for flinging one’s self down after a long day at work, or sacking out on the weekends.
Furniture is its own art form, and the true mark of a privileged bachelor lies not only in his wardrobe and zip code, but the implements with which he relaxes, seduces, and lays his head.
The ideal furniture is designed with both comfort and beauty in mind, and everything from your sofa to bed to bar stool should serve dual capacities. The Scandinavians perfected the art of designing furniture that functions as both art and household necessity, as did the renowned Asian aesthetes. And while the Italians savored their luxurious leather sofas and armchairs, the American way was both classic and understated–think Humphrey Bogart.
If you’re really feeling adventurous, do away with furniture altogether and go full reclining mode with floor-to-wall rugs, carpets, and cushions; a true den of relaxation and, dare we say it, exotically inspired decadence. Conversely, maybe it’s time to turn your pad into the study you’ve always wanted, with deep and inviting armchairs, side tables perfect for setting a drink down on, and an antique footrest to complete your repose.
Furnish your bachelor bad with an eye for both palette and pleasure, and don’t be afraid to indulge in what makes your kingdom worth returning to. The beauty of living the bachelor life lies in the absolute freedom you have to indulge in your greatest comforts and joys, and what better place to start then where you touch down first?
