Treehouses don't have a whole lot in common with modern furniture, as most contemporary designs don't enforce the "no girls allowed" rule while ironically secreting a stash of them in tantalizing Sears catalogs. For a furniture maker who nonetheless cut his teeth -- and presumably a lot of wood -- making treehouses: David Rasmussen.
From a CO-born, Carbondale-based guy who designed and built extravagant treehouses (they exist!) all over the country before settling down here, Rasmussen's handmade ish is influenced by everything from “contemporary American” to the “Ming Dynasty”, so expect your credenza to be excellent at shielding the rest of the bedroom from marauding Mongol hordes.
Some of the best:
1. Nautilus Chair: “Extremely comfortable” despite its looks, this aquatic number's made from beetle-kill lodge pole pine, and has legs that “flex as you sit”, or what Schwarzenegger promises he'll do for weary maids to seduce them.
2. Curve A Linear Desk: This futuristic, Trek-y design can be wall-mounted so it looks like it's hovering, though hopefully not over your shoulder as you furtively Google image search "sofia vergara".
3. Chabudai Table: Usable as either a coffee or dining table if you hate chairs, his take on a traditional Japanese Chabudai is built from claro walnut, and can be made with either fixed or folding legs, much like those of a faint young boy discovering the Sears catalog's underwear section for the first time.
