So I love the show Mad Men and have been suffering withdrawal symptoms since the last episode, and no hope for relief is in sight from what I read…the next season won’t be airing until January 2012!!
One of my main reasons for the love of this show is that it’s set in the 60s, and the style coordinators and set production are impeccable. You feel as if you’ve stepped back in ad industry time. Thus, I am inspired by my favorite show, Mad Men, in finding some unique desk accessories for my office.
The Mad Men office set…so cool. Check out the black phones and the Selectric typewriters.
But I love, love, love this 1961 Royal typewriter I found at Machines of Loving Grace.
Sleek Bruno Adjustable “C” arm Desk Lamp by Robert Abbey. $116.50
This whole office set up is gorgeous…Danish Teak desk. The chair doesn’t look comfy, but the lamp is precious! Inspiring ideas!
Although I couldn’t imagine this retro 60s TV chrome plated clock sitting on Don Draper’s desk, I just think it is so cute. Makes me smile. At Reeves of Bath.
Simplicity, and 60s style. Love this Soho Office Chair from British furniture manufacturers Morgan Furniture.
What’s a vintage desk without the perfect phone? A Western Electric 302, circa 1960, from NY Bell!
And since everyone drinks and smokes in the 60s office we must adorn the desk with a most unique ashtray. Love this beauty, finger folded ashtray, sure to be a conversation piece and paperclip holder. Candy? Or a Lipgloss holder? I don’t smoke but I want one anyway. I have a hundred uses!
