Proving manly apartments need not be synonymous with empty fridges and bare walls, owners John Marsala and Becka Citron have filled this rustic, wood-floored shop with rugged furniture and one-of-a-kind home decor that would lend polish to any bachelor pad. The duo was the creative force behind the DIY Network’s Man Caves series and has designed rooms for Snoop Dogg, Rainn Wilson and Guy Fieri. Their keen eye comes in handy when sourcing vintage pieces—like an early-20th-century carpenter’s bench, repurposed as a table ($2,650), and an oversize brown leather Chesterfield sofa ($3,200)—from local estate sales, antique markets and trade shows. While the shop has no shortage of indulgent splurges—including a stuffed-and-mounted armadillo ($475), pillows crafted from vintage British bus-route signs ($165–$210), and plaid bedding that looks and feels like men’s shirting ($295–$445)—you’ll also find an array of glassware, reclaimed wood mirrors and vintage army blankets for less than $200.
