Looking back on an era of design inspiration

As fans bid farewell to the hit TV show Mad Men, it's hard not to get nostalgic for the stylish 1960s period that the show so meticulously captured. The award-winning set design, created by talented set decorator Claudette Didul-Mann, has become a key design trend, offering a glimpse into the world of 1960s advertising in New York.

Didul-Mann's attention to detail and her commitment to authenticity have brought the mid-century workplace to life on screen. With the help of renowned furniture manufacturer Herman Miller, she sourced vintage pieces to dress the set, ensuring that every element was accurate and true to the era.

One iconic example of the show's design is Don Draper's office at Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce. Designed as a timeless, multifunctional workspace, the office has become so famous that it has been recreated and featured in the Mad Men exhibition at the Museum of the Moving Image.

Herman Miller, a pioneer in office design during the post-World War II era, played a significant role in shaping the look of the show. Known for their flexible and functional furniture, Herman Miller's designs perfectly captured the mid-century aesthetic and helped chronicle the key historical moments in American history that Mad Men references.

The set design of Mad Men goes beyond just furniture. Didul-Mann's obsession with period detail extended to every prop, right down to the smallest stapler or tape dispenser. Each piece on set played a key storytelling role and reflected the characters' personalities. The cluttered desks, vintage stationary, and authentic accessories all added to the authenticity and immersive experience of the show.

The show's influence extends beyond the small screen. Many high street retailers have incorporated mid-century modern design pieces into their collections, making it easier than ever to add a touch of 1960s glamour to your own interior. Whether it's finding a vintage piece on eBay or opting for a replica, there are plenty of options to recreate the Mad Men era in your home or office.

To achieve a subtle nod to the sixties, consider incorporating patterns into your design scheme with colorful, geometrically patterned wallpaper or reupholstering vintage chairs in 60s-inspired fabrics. Adding a pop of color or a vintage lamp base with a custom shade can also instantly transport you back to the Mad Men era.
