I think that is crossing some line of Apple love and house furnishing.. Apple style furniture? I personally think you shouldn't go with all design, but also ergonomics and comfortability...

You could always opt for an Apple Store look. I don't know where you would pick up the furniture though. I personally went the glass and steal route.

Ikea Frederik or Galant

If you live close to an Ikea store I would say go with a Frederik(http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/60111123) or Galant (http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/S79807561)

That's where I went for my desk. They sell desk tops & legs separately,so you can mix and match. Works great.

I would also go glass & steel route. Thick frosted glass would look amazing.

glass and steal, pmsl.

the desk must be modular as i'd like it to be an 'L' desk and it needs to hold a 30". x4 20"s and a 22" and a 19" a mac pro, a desktop, a laptop, and an imac aluminum, please don't post "stop bragging" as I'm not just explainin'. Also i think that weighs in at around maybe 350lb? and about 400" wide, it CAN be a "u" desk if they're available or even a deks like:

LOL Congratulations keehun on inventing a new word. "Comfortability". I'm going to try to work that into a conversation sometime today.

Yeah! I knew it wasn't a word, but it sounded "correct" so there.

That's gonna take a big desk. Wondering, are they for one computer (aka, in a straight line) or a couple of them for the mac pro and one of them for iMac (as in not all in a line) because I think weight distribution should be carefully done as not to stress the desk too much.

If by "Apple Style" you're referring to clean lines, stylish, and expensive look no further than Cantoni. Personally I can see wanting to compliment your investment, but designing around a computer seems silly.

The Heckler desk is quite lovely. My favorite, from their description:

Frickin' Laserbeams.
Every steel part of your OneLessDesk is precisely cut with a computer-controller laser. This means you get a pricely constructed desk with lots of great details including wire wraps and holes you can use to anchor your Kensington cable locks.


Pricely indeed!

I went the narrow, glass and steel route for the desk in my space-challenged bedroom/office. Instead of a classic desk I purchased a credenza from Boltz:
