Manthropology watch: Mantiques


 

Hey Ladies!

Wondering what to get your sweet baboo for Christmas? How about a mantique to stuff in his man cave?

Acting upon the assumption that every modern male secretly wishes it were still the 1950s, architect Douglas Wright will help furnish a space where everyman can pretend he’s Don Draper:

Among the retreats Mr. Wright has created for clients are a home theater with a polished mahogany bar; a den with a putting green outside; and a garage with a big-screen television that can be viewed from the comfort of a car. Most “definitely have a masculine look,” he said, with hefty furnishings and features like dark wood paneling. “A lot of them have the feeling of a lodge.”

Manthropology watch: Mantiques

  1. Acting upon the assumption that every modern male secretly wishes it were still the 1950s

    Should read: Acting upon the assumption that at least some wealthy modern males in New York or San Francisco with more money than brains wish it were still the early 1960s.

    From the article:

    Among the retreats Mr. Wright has created for clients are a home theater with a polished mahogany bar; a den with a putting green outside; and a garage with a big-screen television that can be viewed from the comfort of a car.

  2. I look at my T.V.

    I look at Don Draper's T.V.

    I have no desire to have Don Draper's home theatre.

  3. Good post, MANdrew.
