There are few TV shows as stylish as Mad Men, and our viewing schedules are nowhere near as fashionable now the show has come to an end.
Fans of the show who work in an office (or from home) have no doubt watched on enviously as Don, Peggy and the gang strut around their 1960s advertising agency with plenty of amazing furniture all over the place.
We gathered together some beautifully iconic home and office furniture to help you design your office just like Don Draper and relive the beauty of the Mad Men era every day.
Design Classic Office Chairs
If you’re sat down in front of a computer most of the day, then having a stylish and comfy office chair is absolutely essential. We’ve included a couple of great retro office chairs, as well as two chairs with ottomans that would be perfect for sitting in your office when you want to read or just want some time away from your computer screen.
The Knoll Pollock chair was actually designed in 1963, so it really is smack bang in Mad Men era.

The Office Desk
Now that you've got your seating sorted, it's time to take a look at the desk. Here are a couple of great options that give two very different effects.
This Bensen Homework Desk is a great mixture of retro and contemporary, owing to its glass top juxtaposed with walnut drawers. If you want to go full-on Don Draper, you’ll need to keep a supply of new white shirts in the drawers for when you need to sleep in the office.
If you want something a little more simple and minimalist, then this Vitra Map Table is a great choice. For those of you who think less is more, this desk will keep your mind focused on the job in hand.

Retro Inspired Sofas
So many episodes of Mad Men include Don taking a nap on a sofa in his office or having to sleep there overnight for whatever reason. Whilst we don’t recommend either of these things, no matter how tempting it may be to have an afternoon nap, having a comfortable sofa in your office is a great place to sit, reflect and chill out for a while.

Other Mad Men Style Furniture
We also sell a huge amount of other retro office furniture that would really give your place of work that 60s vibe. The Knoll conference armchair is perfect for the meeting room, whilst both the Vitra benches and the Knoll splay leg coffee table would be perfect for a reception or waiting area. If you have a break room or ideas room at work, then the Gan Mangas Pouf is incredibly comfortable and looks fantastic.

Bar & Wine Accessories
To say that Don Draper and his fellow Mad Men like a drink or two might be a slight understatement. Nary an episode goes by when they don’t have a glass of whiskey at work or knock off early to head to the nearest bar.
Whilst drinking at work might not be the most productive idea, having an occasional drink after work doesn’t harm anyone. We included just a few of our bar and drink accessories, including the phenomenal Araq wall-mounted bar cabinet, a Menu carafe, some rocking spirit glasses and drink stones that chill your drink without diluting it.
