On Trend: 'Mad Men' Mid-Century Inspired Furniture

Inspired by the hit TV series 'Mad Men', this nostalgic furniture trend draws influence from the 50s and 60s, when modernism was fresh and exciting. Key retro pieces include the classic Eames lounger, woven-back chairs, low Knolls sideboards plus boxy sofas for receptions and living rooms. Think of the minimal, clean lines of the later episodes and focus on darker woods with splashes of colour. If you're after a more romantic look, invest in a button-tufted headboard à la Betty Draper. Why not make your office more like Don Draper's...minus the drinks cabinets and wooden wall panelling! No matter who your favourite character is, there's a piece of Mad Men furniture at our online store to bring them to life. Plus, you don't have to move an inch; Furniture 123 products are all delivered to your doorstep without you having to leave the comfort of your own home.
