It turned out better than expected! I’m in love. The jersey display is so easy to use. Kids can touch it and shuffle through it with ease. It’s beautiful! Now I just need to go get a few more jerseys!” — Bud

This West Lake Hills Man Cave was part of an above-garage home addition and created as a space to hang out, let loose, and have some fun. Every element in this space was custom-designed for ultimate form and function. Equipped with a contemporary walnut pool table, large screen television, a golf simulator (not pictured), and easily movable seating, this space serves as a way to unwind after a long day and entertain a small group of friends. The shining element in the space is a custom-designed baseball jersey display with open shelving for memorabilia above. The jersey display was designed to be an interactive piece showcasing a growing collection of jerseys, with space to display up to 90 jerseys. Made of 45 custom double-sided powder-coated metal frames, each on its own pivoting hinge, and kept lower to the ground, this display allows adults and kids to easily “flip through” to see the collection. Across the room is a wet bar with custom walnut cabinetry and a dramatic leathered granite wall treatment and countertop with an integrated sink. Shou Sugi Ban ceiling paneling makes a bold statement and is repeated on the walls of the adjacent powder room. Metal floating shelves are thoughtfully placed throughout the space as a landing area for drinks and snacks.
