When it comes to bars, simple is usually the best options. While I love fancy places where you are basically required to order a neat scotch or a Martini, there is a lot to say about a bar where you are invited to have a beer and a shot of bourbon. Carbon bar, in London, is the latter bar, and it is a great one.  Continue reading


DIY Pipe Furniture

I hate furniture shopping. not only do you have to find something you like, but it has to be the right size, and regardless you pay a huge mark up to pay managers, designers, manufacturers, the salespeople, and whoever delivers it. Being cheap, I like to avoid paying as many middle man as I can. This is why I like to feature a lot of Do-It-Yourself projects that allow men to take a trip to a home improvement store as opposed to a furniture store.  Continue reading

iPod Docks To Consider

Logitech Pure-Fi Dream : Front
With last night’s passing of Steve Jobs, I want to spend today discussing how to implement
some of the Apple Co-Founder’s greatest works into your home. While this morning’s was a 
re-post of how to give your hoe the look of an Apple store, this post is about getting
your iPod to become the center of you home audio system.

The biggest innovation in music in the last 20 years, without a doubt, is the combination of the iPod and iTunes. These two simple things changed the was we listen and buy music. We no longer have giant portfolios of CDs in our car and its tough to find a decent place to buy moderatley priced CD’s. There are no more albums the way they existed under Pink Floyd but rather a shotgun blast of singles on “shuffle”.  The iPod is responsible for all of this, the center of the music revolution. Now you should start looking into making your iPod/iPhone the center of your audio system as well with an iPod Dock. Continue reading

REPOST: Get that Apple Look

Editors Note: Yes, I just did this post a few days ago, but I wanted to try and find a Homes4Men genre appropriate way to honor phenomenal innovator that was Steve Jobs. I will try to do more for him throughout the day, but I felt this was a great way to start it off. 


Apple Inc is a cultural monster. Steve Jobs, and now Tim Cook are able to create products that have an impact. The iPod, iPhone, and iPad have revolutionized they way we consume media and garner information. Above all else, they have a distinct look. Steve Jobs has done an excellent job giving Apple a level of brand recognition that is unmatched by any other company out there. It is a brand people identify with. So it is only logical that today, with the announcement of the new iPhone 5, I will discuss how to get Apple’s look in your own home. Continue reading

A Modern Wooden Chandelier





I have to say I love this fixture. It is rustic with modern lines, and has a warm wood feel that gives it a masculine touch. It’s more rugged than the overly refined metal and glass chandeliers that most people have, and  is something people won’t see everyday. It may be a love/hate piece, but it will get people talking.


There is no pricing available, but you can contact the designer here.
