Mad About Mad Men Sets

We are drooling over Interior Design Magazine’s tribute to the furnishings and set design of one of our fave shows, Mad Men!

Set Decorator Amy Wells and Production Designer Dan Bishop have nailed the period perfectly from the show’s time span of early 60’s to 1969. Everything from furniture to distinctive props and wallpaper all come together to create “Mid Century Modern Porn” for us design addicts!
