Ode to the Man-Chair

All in the Family may not be in the memory of many people under the age of 40 unless they watch TV Land, but it brings up a key idea of masculine home design. Men should have their own space, but it doesn’t always matter the exact square footage of that space. While it is pretty much indisputable that women control the home these day (A fact I will continue to fight against), men need to put their foot down where they can, and the 9 square feet that a  “man-chair” occupies is a great place to start.

I was pretty excited, thinking that I would be able to write a quick post similar to my write-up on the Ben-Rose house from Ferris Bueller’s Day Off. Not to mention the fact that I would be able to post another picture of Scarlett Johansson in the black cat suit.

The home was created with CGI and 3D modeling and placed on Point Dume. Jon Favreau, the director of the film even said “It’s sort of like the best spot and nobody is allowed to build there, so we put a digital house there.Continue reading
