Manly-man desires are dominating decor's current den trend. Smoky colours, rusty finishes and low, mid-century-modern lines are converting bright urban spaces into killer moody retreats. Curiosities like vintage medical machines and retro music gear accessorize the look. For its Beat Stool , Tokyo's Dulton Company Limited tops a drum stand with a tractor seat in red, black, white or chrome finishes to give you occasional seating without floor-cushion fluff.
