Mad Men Style
The new season of Mad Men has begun! This means me sitting on the sofa analyzing the interior in each scene. Sometimes I am so distracted by the chair Donald Draper is lounging on that I miss the story completely. There is no question this era was not always politically correct, but they had unbelievable style. Bring a little Mad Men into your home with a few Mid-Century Mod pieces. You will be sipping martinis on your chintz sofa before you know it.
Decorator in a Box can help you create this look in a finacially savvy way and online at www.mydiab.com .
Bring a little Charles and Ray Eames into your space. You can find original antiques like the chairs shown below at 1stdibs.com. You may also find replicas from other dealers at a more affordable price.
The Tulip Table and Platner Table definitely represent this style and are a sure thing. You can find these at DWR.com or search 1stdibs and Craigslist for deals.
Room and Board is a great resource for Mid Centery Modern furniture like this sofa shown below and more.
Add a fun lamp like the ones below at 1stdibs.com. Don't forget to check out local flea markets and garage sales for great finds.
Add some abstract or pop art by popular artists of the time and give your space a punch. You can find posters by Roy Lichtenstein, Jackson Pollock, and Mark Rothko at allposters.com. They priced affordably and you can even have them framed.
