If you’re an avid skier, you once were, or you know someone into it who can spare a few skis, you can make these chairs yourself. You can then recreate this project in whatever style you want.
Sports logo recliners

You can shop them right here, choosing from particular sports and specific teams such as the Boston Red Sox, the Baltimore Ravens, the Washington Redskins, the Philadelphia Eagles, the New York Yankees, and countless others.
Depending on the team, some of the chairs are available in plush, colorful microfiber and others leather.
Once you sit down in one of these bad boys, you might not want to get back up. Oh well, it’s your man cave, your rules!

A bungee chair includes a steel frame for support so you can sit and chill all day. This one on Amazon can hold up to 225 pounds per chair. The polyester rim has a 600-denier count for appeal and reliability.
The bungee part is teal in this case, but you can probably find this style chair in just about any color you desire. The one featured below can fold so you can stash it in a closet or spare space when not in use.
Watch out who you invite over to your man cave, as you might all fight over who gets to sit in the bungee chair! Luckily, get you can place an Amazon order for a two-chair set.
Spiky round chair
You’re a man who likes his space. Now no one will want to tangle with you when you sit down on this unique recliner.
This rounded red chair has simple armrests and cushioning, but that’s okay. It’s not necessarily about the chair itself, but rather, the large metallic spikes that protrude from practically every surface.
These spikes act as the chair’s four legs, and the rest serve a purpose, too. They tell any unwanted company to stay away lest they get poked.
The disco chair
Bring back the 1970’s disco era with this stunning seating idea. Yes, you’re looking at a real chair, not some electric light show.
According to Bless This Stuff, a design company called Kiwi & Pom make these chairs, which feature tons of electroluminescent wire. When you turn the chairs on, they glow in a rainbow of hues. You can even use a pulse and flash setting so the chairs shine like disco balls.
This would certainly make a major impact on any man cave, especially if you turned out the lights and showed everyone what this chair could do.
Badass and functional, this jaw-dropping scorpion armchair comes from the imagination of Vyacheslav Pakhomov, a Russian woodcarver who also dabbles in sculpting and painting. He favors bio-gothic designs and makes a lot of furniture featuring critters and insects, such as this one.
With leather cushions and a sturdy oak base, this smooth, slightly terrifying chair would make any man cave a thousand times cooler.
We doubt any of your friends would try to steal your seat if it looked like this.

Soccer ball chair
Egg chairs add a certain mod chicness to a man cave, which may fit if you’re going for a more retro look with your space. This one works better for sports-themed man caves, as the leather panels resemble the skin of a soccer ball.

Maximo Riera, a designer hailing from Spain, created these staggeringly amazing animal chairs. He plans on making 15 designs, with three out there right now.
One has the long, spindly legs of an octopus. The level of detail here will amaze, as every feature is accurate, down to all the octopus’ suckers.
The other chair, a walrus, showcases imposing tusks and layers of bulk that make this chair durable. The rhino chair displays a bust of this endangered animal, its horns protruding menacingly.
The generous leather padding, curved chair design, and sturdy, structured legs make these chairs marvelous across the board.
The loopita spiral chair
Sort of resembling a curly fry (at least in this picture), you’re probably looking at this and wondering how the Loopita counts as a chair at all. Ah, but it all depends on how you use it.
The brainchild of Victor Aleman, the Loopita has panels of high-density foam as well as a red oak base. You connect several of the units to make one Loopita that’s as short or as long as your man cave allows. You can curl the Loopita into a giant circle and then have two people sit on either side, such as this example shows.
