What Houzz contributors are saying:

The media room is Clark's "man den." Oversize chaises give plenty of cuddling room. Turner used the negative space from the recessed walls to store logs, lending the space a cozy, rustic sensibility.
Cathy Lara added this to 17 Ways to Cozy Up Your Home for Fall
Oversize loungers. Forget La-Z-Boy sofas. Oversize chaises in this new traditional media room–turned–man's den give everyone in the house plenty of cuddle room and front-and-center access to the TV without sacrificing style and elegance.
Shane D. Inman added this to 8 Qualities of Great Interior Design
Coordination. The overstuffed chairs in this chic man cave match the two accent seats on the other side of the room for one uniform color combination. The all-white painted brick wall, full-length draperies and firewood are complementary textures rather than additional focal points.

Another popular option in the 1920s was owl andirons. When they were new, most owl andirons were brass and fitted with green glass marble-like “eyes.” When the flames burned, they cast a delightful glow. Now it’s rare to find owl andirons with their eyes intact. In this project (by Melanie Turner), where eyeless owls have been given a new white coat, it hardly matters.
And speaking of TV, question eight is directly related: “How important is your TV-watching chair?” This may seem a bit odd to include in the top 12, but in my experience it can really become a big issue in the design of a room. If a TV-watching chair not important to you, then of course it won’t be an issue. But if it is, then everything else in the room may become subordinate to the TV and the chairs for watching it. This isn’t a bad thing — it’s just necessary information if a designer is going to serve you well. In this living room, for instance, comfortable TV-viewing chairs were clearly very important, and the way that was accommodated proved to be quite stylish.
“The first question your potential designer should ask you, assuming you’re sitting in your home, is, ‘What do you love in this room?’” This question is important because it assures you the designer is interested in what you want — what your tastes are — and is not determined to impose his or her tastes on you.” —Mike DietrichI know from a lot of your feedback that working with a designer for the first time can be intimidating. This ideabook is full of great advice for how to find the right one. Dietrich explains that a designer should want to know your likes and hates, your needs, your lifestyle and how you want to use every room you will be working on together. In fact, a handful of these questions can be knocked out in the initial phone conversation, which will save you a lot of time figuring out who will be the right pro for you.Full story: 12 Questions Your Interior Designer Should Ask You

Questions to Ask an Interior Designer-- 7) “How do you use this room?” If it’s a living room, will it be just for formal use when guests come to visit? Or will it include entertaining guests but also be used daily for watching TV? 8) “How important is your TV-watching chair?” This may seem a bit odd to include in the top 12, but in my experience it can really become a big issue in the design of a room. 9) “Are there any special needs that should be considered?” This relates to things like an elderly person’s needing an especially firm chair that’s easy to get up from, or accommodating a wheelchair, or addressing allergy issues. 10) “What’s your budget?” 11) Center Stage Interiors One question I always ask, when creating living spaces, is "how many people need to be seated on a regular basis?" 12) Jacklyn van der Vijver BINNENstyling Besides asking "How do you use this room?" I always ask if they would like to use it differently. Are there any things they are not doing because they think it's not possible? For example: Having a lot of friends over for dinner, creating a 'private' space for teenage kids in the living room or creating an office since more and more people are working at home these days. Ask your designer, “Is this a realistic budget to accomplish my vision?”
