On June 19th, we will all be celebrating the special men in our lives – our dads! Although Anthropology dinnerware sets and velvet curtain fabric swatches might not always keep their attention the way it does ours, we know of a few things that definitely will.
Here are some of our favorite Father’s Day inspired picks for him:
Montauk Sofa is our first, most obvious choice. Their super sleek, sexy, and masculine lines are almost Mid-Century-esque, high end and hand made, but with superior green initiatives. Don’t underestimate them for just another pretty face; they’re also pro’s in tackling greenhouse gases, closed loop recycling, and biodegradability.
Should dad be the collector type, surprise him with this tempting treat. Tesoro Mio cigars are handmade in Costa Rica (to the aficionado, the pedigree and origin of a premium cigar is of utmost importance) with tobacco that has been grown with no pesticides (something us eco-lovers can appreciate, too!) It’s considered to be a completely organic cigar. Pair it with a recycled or solid wood Humidor that insures no off-gasing and that re-purposes wood that would otherwise turn to waste.
Tom Dixon light pendants call out to the rugged industrial man in all of us. A master of the metal, his pieces are often in copper or gold and come in the most contemporary shapes. Unlike all lights, they work really well with LED bulbs and are the perfect addition for any man cave.
Top off dad’s collection with a eco-luxurious wine membership. Trefethen Vineyards Wine Club delivers award-winning wines, including many you won’t be able to find in stores, straight to dad’s doorstep. Better yet, they promote sustainable farming practices that include recycling all winery wastewater to irrigate their vineyards and using solar energy to power their offices and winery/vineyard operations. Every man cave needs a place to store all of that merch, and what goes better with a wine club membership than a top of the line wine fridge? Subzero has quickly become the Benz of kitchen appliances and comes in a huge variety of sizes, capacities, and styles.
We’re always looking for great American made products, and this is definitely one of them. Evo Grills can be used both indoor and outdoor, and just introduced an electric cooktop with a ductless downdraft ventilation feature. This means a full containment of smoke, grease and cooking odors, which in turn means better breathing air quality for the whole family. It can be built with a custom surround for a stagnant outdoor kitchen, or put on wheels to bring with him wherever dad may go.
