Last week was the premier of the fifth season of Mad Men on AMC. There has been lots of buzz about the plot line and the arising themes of this season, which did capture my imagination but what I was very much intrigued by were the set design and interior design choices. The office design and decor has been a topic of discussion in past seasons, but not so much the residential interiors, which is where I would like to focus my attention.
AMC’s Mad Men is back this Sunday (July 25th), and like many other people I’m excited! It’s a cult phenomenon that has effected the country’s design aesthetic by inspiring us in the way we dress (please see Banana Republic [here] and QVC [here])
and even the way we design our interiors (ie. Design Within Reach [here]). I mean haven’t you all noticed the resurgence of mid-century modern furniture in the past few years? Not only is this show full of beautiful people and interesting story lines, but also (in my opinion) it has one constant character, makes it so great. The set design.
