Give Your Place A Mad Men Facelift

The final few episodes of Mad Men are here, and whether or not you're one of its many superfans, there's no denying what a brilliantly accurate design time capsule it's been over its seven seasons. While you may not be down to carry on like Don Draper in all his emotional depravity, you can at least live in a badass apartment like his.

To get you started, we've rounded up a few midcentury modern pieces that will put you well on your way to whiskey-infused bliss.

George Nelson Thin Edge Buffet

Price:$5,800
Among other things, Mad Men has become one of Herman Miller's greatest modern-day calling cards. The show's set decorator worked alongside the hugely iconic Michigan-based furniture brand to create much of the incredibly true-to-period background. This classic credenza was designed for the company by George Nelson in the fifties, and is still produced today. [See more]

Mia Table Lamp

Price:$129
Inspired by mid-century teak and ceramic lamps, this modern glazed ceramic version resembles a few of the ones spotted in the Drapers' sunken living room. [See more]

Waterford's Mad Men Mixology Collection

Price:$175 and up
If you're looking for a truly Mad Men-inspired overhaul, it would be woefully inadequate without booze. Lots of booze. And what better way to suck it down than from highballs, glasses, decanters, and pitchers from Waterford's recently released Mad Men Mixology Collection. [See more]

Goetz Sofa

Price:$5,167
A modern-day Herman Miller standby, this molded wood-wrapped nap spot takes several design cues from classic sofas of the '60s and '70s, although it was designed much later. Need to binge and catch up on some episodes? This is the couch to do it on.  [See more]

Milo Baughman Recliner 74

Price:$3,100
Whoever told you all recliners are ugly has never laid eyes on Milo Baughman's. The decidedly anti-La-Z-Boy leather lounge was originally designed back in '66, comes in eight colors, and leans back into three different comfortable positions. [See more]
