Mid-Century Modern is Back with Mad Men’s Return

If you’re looking for the latest trends in home design to update your new Charleston home, consider mid-century modern. In fact, we’ve noticed that everywhere we go we’re seeing more of this classic 50’s, 60’s and 70’s style in home furnishings and design. Mad Men is back for its final season on AMC and it’s chock full of style and details from the dresses to the office furniture.

We’ve selected a few of our favorites from some of the top urban and modern home décor retailers like Crate & Barrel and West Elm to help you give your Charleston home a hint of “mid-century mod” …

Watch TV Don Draper style with this mid-century modern media hutch from West Elm, though your TV may be a slight upgrade from his. The hutch models its slim legs on the styles of the 50’s and 60’s and offers plenty of space with moveable shelves and many drawers. They’ve even paired it with a shag rug for you!

Can’t you see the team at Sterling Cooper & Partners perched on and around this classic couch also from West Elm as they flesh out the latest “creative” for their new client? Mid-century elements of this sofa include slim arms, tufted cushions, solid wood legs and a sloping wingback style.

Get to work with this Crane desk from Crate & Barrel, which is part of their mid-century furniture collection. Warm walnut and gleaming chrome pair together in this open desk that offers plenty of space for sketching out the design for the latest ad.

Also available from Crate & Barrel is this mid-century modern King bed with tufted back. It offers a streamlined, low-platform design and dark tapered legs. It just might work perfectly in Peggy’s new apartment!
