Mad Men, the award-winning dramatic series on the AMC network, has created a renewed interest in the decorating style of the 1960s. Set in Manhattan and a suburb of New York, the show’s home and office interiors reflect the mid-century modern style. Fashion and home décor were clean, cool and sophisticated. The characters on show have more than their share of problems, but their approach to style is decidedly modern and grownup.
The post-modern style was soon replaced by flower power, orange shag carpets and other excesses of the 1970s. Now you can take a step back in time – tune into Mad Men and get a taste of life in a time when no respectable executive would be caught dead without his fedora.
