Whether your man cave is a decadent affair with a retro Gentleman’s Club vibe, or a coolly contemporary Scandi-inspired space, there’s always room for a fresh injection of art. From limited edition prints from exciting graphic designers and rare vintage reprints, to original contemporary art and incredible photography, many of the world’s artists who haven’t yet made the big time are now trading their wares online, ideal for aspiring curators of fine taste who don’t have billionaire budgets.
To help you find fantastic pieces to give your man cave a style update, the Barrington Watchwinder team have collected some of the very best online spots to find art that will inspire you and impress your guests. And no, we’re not talking Gustav Klimpt prints.
Society6 is home to works by hundreds of thousands of artists, all turned into a diverse selection of affordable prints, canvases, tapestries and more.
