With the long awaited return of Mad Men on the horizon, I'm eagerly anticipating oodles of '60s-era modern furniture and decor delights every week. In particular, I'm curious about the look of the offices in season five, and in particular the desks. I've rounded up two gorgeous walnut desks that introduce color into the design that would be absolutely welcome in the set design for this season of Mad Men.
The first desk I'm in serious love with is the Swag Leg Desk by Herman Miller ($2,000). Available through Room & Board, this desk was designed by George Nelson in 1958 for Herman Miller. Built out of solid walnut and chrome, its small size allows you to tuck it into a corner of your bedroom or use it in a studio space. The big pops of color on the desk's lacquer shelf area, however, will always ensure that it makes a statement.
Keep clicking for another walnut desk with mid-century pop — at a lower price point.
Retailing at just under $600, Blu Dot's Modern Cant Desk is another small desk with big style. The desktop area on the Blu Dot desk is made from walnut veneer while the legs are crafted from solid walnut. Contrasting color pops of red or gray steel finishes the look of the desk.
