Mad Men Office Style

One of the most stylish TV shows on air at the moment must be Mad Men. Walk through the suits department of any of the major retail stores & you'll see the sharp fitting, thin lapelled suits that Don Draper sports. Interestingly, few of the fashions worn by the female actors in the earlier series appear to have been so popular with today's fashion designers – perhaps because few women want to return to wearing corsets! However, as the series entered the 1960s the women’s clothes have seen spin offs in today’s high street.

However, another area where the Mad Men style has been influential is in the home interior & office furniture styles. George Nelson and Charles Eames designs featured prominently in the opening two series.

In later series, the office furniture has taken a more contemporary look, with pieces from Saarinen amongst others. Roger Sterling's office in series 6 is a case in point as Saarinen Tulip Tables & stools take centre stage.

Another feature of the mad Men offices are the sofas & chaise lounge that feature in almost every office - not surprising given the long, liquid lunches that appear a fixture of their working day. Don is often seen reclining on a Florence Knoll or Le Corbusier sofa after yet another long lunch or meeting.
