With the final season of Mad Men rapidly approaching and anticipation levels at an all-time high, it’s safe to say that the show’s style made a lasting imprint on its audience. Mid-century modern furniture and décor lovers have always known what Mad Men lovers are just recently finding out: the décor from that time period escapes the “dated” look with its constantly modern edge. You can start small by adding an accent piece such as rounded armchair, or do your whole home in the classic Danish mid-century style.
To introduce elements of Mad Men style into your home, start with the color-scheme. Bold colors such as avocado, burnt orange, and cherry red work well in small doses, contrasted with blues, white, and the grey-to-black spectrum. Hang some funky geometric patterned curtains in these hues to get a feel for the look. When you’re ready to buy furniture, keep in mind that a mid-century sofa will have the largest impact on the room. A low, flat sofa with straight lines, possibly even a sectional, will give your living room a mid-century makeover instantly!
