Most young men's apartments actually have quite a lot in common with young boys' treehouses: once in, you're usually high the whole time!! Also, no girls. Bolster the similarity, with David Rasmussen Design.
A New England-raised, Green Mountain College-educated furniture maker who perfected his skills building opulent treehouses around the country, DR's avant-garde aesthetic reflects his love of "Danish, Ming Dynasty, and contempo American studio furniture". Well, actually, it just sort of reflects the second two, as these things don't look anything like a delicious pastry. Stylings include:
Plank Bench: No longer just a free weight exercise to increase planking ability, this 6ft-er is available with or without a back, and consists of dark sapele/ teak/ mahogany boards mounted atop rounded or angled legs.
Curve A Linear Desk: Boasting seductively curvaceous modern lines, this lime green claro walnut workstation comes wall-mounted or freestanding, and sports four drawers w/ "eco-resin faces", also what you end up with by accidentally coughing into an eco-bowl.
ReDesign: Graced with "luscious blue velvet", this upcycled wing-back frame has been modernized with a buttoned back seam that's billed as "sexy", and walnut-made, solid arms -- though if you had those, there might be girls in the apartment already.
