Dads and the important men in our life mean the world to us. And with Father’s Day just around the corner, you might be on the hunt for a great gift that shows your love and appreciation a little bit more than the new pair of boot socks you usually get him every year. Don’t worry. We’re here to help. No matter what kind of guy your dad is, we’ll bet there’s always a room in the house where you tend to find them. For some it’s the home office, reading the paper. For others, it’s the game room, or the family room, or the kitchen. But just like for everyone else, space plays a very important role in a man’s life. Here are some tips and ideas for the interiors your dad loves the most. And who knows, you might even find a great gift along the way! (Ready to shop now?

For Dad Who Always Knows the Score:
Does dad spend his downtime out playing a pick-up game with his buddies? Well add to his trophy collection with an exquisitely crafted foosball table that he can show off to his friends. Or if dad just prefers to watch the game with his feet up and a beer in hand, give his space a sporty look with vintage decor, including this vintage leather football and these vintage leather gloves perfect for any empty wall space or for styling a shelf.
For Dad Who Loves Fido’s Slobbery Kisses:
Dogs want to be everyone’s best friend, but we all know that they’re especially obsessed with dad. If you’ve seen dad making out with his mutt more times than you’d really wish, get him some doggy decor so he can demonstrate his affection in a way that involves a lot less slobber. Wall art and sculptures are a great way to add dad’s pup-loving personality into his office decor. Or, get him barking mad over these bookends for his library or this Velveteen Rabbit dog bed for little Fido himself. (Okay. I’m done yapping with the dog puns).
For Dad Who Quotes War and Peace:
Anyone else obsessing over this swivel stool work desk featured above? It’s perfect for dads who like to multitask or have a bite to eat while they work! Check out the board below for some more great finds:
When you imagine dad, is he sipping his morning coffee and reading the Sunday paper? Cozying up on the couch with the New Yorker or an NYT Bestseller? Make sure that your literary dad is living in style. A new minimal desk or a modern bookcase can add a bit of scholarly flair to his office decor. Bring the characters out of the books by adding these bookends or this sculpture to dad’s abundant library. And for all of the late night reads before he goes to bed, this brass task lamp lets dad burn the midnight oil in style. Need some inspiration for this look?

For Dad Who Likes It Shaken, Not Stirred:
Is dad one of the guys who knows the difference between whiskey, scotch, bourbon, and rye—and will always correct you if you’re wrong? If he’s a liquor connoisseur, help him impress his friends by dressing up his bar with the best barware, including impressive decanters, a manly back-to-nature wine rack, and a serving cart for all of his entertaining needs. Need some help styling his bar cart as a Father’s Day surprise? Get your tips on the blog!
