While I've told you about how to get the look of the Mad Men set, from Helen Bishop's living room to Don Draper's office, I still have more to share with you. The sets from this show are just too fabulous to ignore, so I'm going to take you through a few more ideas for recreating the show's unique, mid-century look.
There's something so decadent about Betty Draper's scenes at her psychiatrist's office. Perhaps it's the fact that she's alone, doing something for herself for once, and not tending to her children or house or husband. Here's how to get this look at your own home (though bald-headed Freudian psychiatrist not provided, sorry).
The Chaise Lounge Simple, mid-century, distinguished, and leather hit all the marks. You can keep it classic, with black leather and a modern shape, or think a little further outside the box.
The Doctor's Chair Think: imposing, authoritarian, removed, and omnipotent.
To get the rest of the look,
The Floor Coverings Patterned wool, whether it's in an updated design or a classic Persian, will offset the modern lines of some of the other furniture.
The Side Table Choose a masculine, wooden classic on which to display your treasures.
The Coffee Table A Saarinen or Nelson table is perfect for holding Betty's cigarettes and ashtray (but hopefully it will not support any nicotine products in your home).
The Accessories Choose objects that express your worldliness, such as religious statues from your intercontinental travels, or some phallic-oriented object that expresses a Freudian theory.
