What’s Trending Today…Mad Men

 By Emily Anderson, Allied Member ASID
Okay, it's been everywhere for awhile now, but I'll be the first to admit I am a fan of all things Mad Men. I have spent many an evening absorbed in the mysterious lives of Don and Betty Draper. And if I'm not completely engrossed in the story then I am taking notes on the interiors. Isn't the new office in Season 5 yummy? It is jam packed with mid-century modern treasures. Why are so many of us obsessed with this era and the mystique of mid-century modern style? Because it offers a level of sophistication that is not easily attained, creating a look that will always be imitated.


60's style is everywhere! Check out Banana Republic's new Mad Men line:

LiLu is still waiting for Don and Betty to walk through the door for a head-to-toe mid century mod make-over. But we have had the opportunity to infuse a little Mad Men style in some of our projects. Here is a carpet that is going to be installed in a South Minneapolis home. It gives a nod to 60's style with the geometric pattern and bold contrast.


We're lucky to be inspired everyday by the best mid-century modern reproductions available. The Knoll showroom is our neighbor here at IMS and the showroom is filled with beautiful designs from Saarinen, Bertoia and many others.

Isn't that the same chair and sofa used in one of the private officesn on set?

Check in tomorrow to see a quirky trend LiLu is on board with.
