Modern Man Cave: In Dire Need of Art.
Robert Hensley
June 26, 2014 in Design Dilemma
Well ladies and gentleman, I've gathered up all of this major furniture for my bachelor pad, and now I've hit a wall (pun intended). I live in an apartment, so changing the wall color, & light fixtures was kinda out of the question. You could probably call it plain, but I really like the simplistic modern look. I like to use orange & red, probably too much.

I need suggestions for wall art, sculptures, or prints. I found this metal San Fran (my favorite city) piece that I really like that would go behind the big couch, but is it to much orange? I'm not really into the typical "16 types of beer" artwork.

HELP!

I think you've done a great job so far! I love the art you've selected. I say go for it. I would like to mention that you can use complementing colors to add variety to the room. Since you have orange and chocolate and white, try to pull in a little green and blue in the right shades to add a little more depth to the space. Again, it looks great! I live what you've done so far!

Good job! Very consistent with your idea books. Definitely go for the San Fran piece. I would add a plant to the room to give it some life and improve air quality.

Hello Robert! Here are some artwork that we believe fit your aesthetics and incorporate orange and red. These would help to pull everything together. We have our complete inventory online at www.dkgallery.us.

Hello Robert,

I am not sure if you already found what you were looking for but as sculptor and high end furniture designer I invite you to see my work.

I am specialized in some very original abstract wall sculptures which could give your living room a very elegant strong focus point. Something different. Here I post a few ideas, but I invite you to visit my website:

I work with rusted corten steel and stainless steel. Everything I do is on demand so I would adapt the sculpture you choose to fit perfectly on the wall.

I ship to any place.

Sincerely,

Gonzalo De Salas
