Maybe a little pricey, but some of the vintage desks I found at Rehab Vintage were incredible. Here, McDowell Craig blue steel Tanker Desk.
1960s All Steel Loewy Fantop Desk. I really like this one!

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.
But I love, love, love this 1961 Royal typewriter I found at Machines of Loving Grace.
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.
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!

Retro design is a nice, clean new/old look that can add freshness and interest to your new living space. I must say, it only works for me if the room is done completely in this style. So when considering making the room vintage, look for a theme, like the 70s for example, and stick with decorating items in that style era. It can be fun.
Retro furnishings in your apartment can give it a style and freshness. Love the color scheme here found at The Home Look.
