Everything has a place, even if you cannot see it in a man cave/man space. For instance, the amazing Collapsible Storage Stairs. Keep your possessions all neat and orderly in the drawers as they stand tall against the wall. Need to reach something on top, just step right up and come back down with whatever you need. The clean, wood grain finish will fit perfectly in any room, providing out of sight storage and a cool look.

Flexible Seating Arrangements

Limited space, but still looking for a cool addition to the man space, flexible seating can help. Even those that do not have limited space may still find these designs to cool to resist.

The classic bench

However, the coolest aspect of this bench is not the color scheme, but instead the fact it converts from a comfortably cool looking bench into a picnic style table and chairs. The cushions are actually simple square chairs and the nice oak paneling on the bench unfolds into a picnic style table. This is the perfect home furnishing asset for a sports gathering with snacks.

The Obelisk Furniture Pod

The Fletcher Capstan Table

When it comes to flexible tables, designs can be limited, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t some great choices.

Plus, the actual turning process is done in a unique star like pattern, so it can be fun to watch as well.

This allows you and your buddies to sit down, have some Chinese take out, and then break out the beer and pool sticks. It doesn’t get much better then food and pool.

Multi-Function Furniture
