Mad Men has inspired a clothing line from Banana Republic and now I can bet you, there will be a Mad Men inspired furniture boom, from one of the newer trendy brands like CB2 or Room & Board. The Los Angeles times as a great story behind Don Draper’s new digs.
The Draper living room has grass cloth wallpaper and curtains with a matching valance made from retro material from Fabricut. Outside the window wall: a 1964 white metal patio dinette set by Samsonite that Didul purchased on eBay. The modular sofas and ottoman were designed by “Mad Men” production designer Dan Bishop and built by Omega Cinema Props. Don’s Lied Mobler black leather lounge chair came from Galerie Sommerlath in Los Angeles; the magazine rack is from Amsterdam Modern, also in L.A. The glass-topped coffee table is from Deja Vu in Long Beach, and the counter stools are a vintage design by Erik Buk purchased on Craigslist from a Virginia seller.
The dining room has a strong Danish influence. The dining table set and credenza were purchased at Danish Modern Noho. The rug, designed to look like a 1960s rya, was created from shag carpeting at S & J Biren floor coverings in Los Angeles.
Custom-built kitchen cabinets have a handy pass-through window to the dining room, a built-in cook top and a revolving spice rack, far left, purchased on Etsy. Didul shopped for glasses, cookware and kitchen accessories at the antique malls in Orange and Pomona, and the Pasadena Antique Center and Annex and Novotny’s Antique Gallery in Pasadena.
