14 Awesome Man Caves

I came across this great article on artofmaniless.com showcasing 14 awesome man caves from famous historical figures. I love the way each room is reflective of the personality who retreated there. Pictured right is Teddy Roosevelt’s trophy room, which is pretty much exactly how I would have pictured it.

Mark Twain’s writing hut (below) is also highly reflective of his personality, check out the isolated octagonal structure, the size and space of his writing nest.

My other favorite from this article is Frank Lloyd Wright’s drafting studio (very bottom), which is so much like his architecture: clean lines, sharp angles, and practical style.

Check out the whole article to see Henry David Thoreau’s cabin in the woods, John Muir’s “scribble den” and another favorite: Thomas Jefferson’s office.
