Los Angeles Times blog, L.A. at Home, recently ran an article describing the background behind Mad Men character Don Draper’s swanky 1960s era Manhattan-based high-rise apartment and the origin of its vintage mid-century furnishings.
Apartment 17-B, right, set decorator Claudette Didul said, is “in a high-rise that feels like it was built in 1960 with a white-carpeted sunken living room and a fascinating fireplace and a Case Study-style kitchen with two pass through windows.”
It also sports walnut cabinetry with a built-in television set and one of those new-fangled-for-the-time push-button phones.
Didul said Draper’s love of sleek modern lines and high-tech gadgetry and manly appointments (leather lounge chair, countertop cocktail bar with a drum-shaped ice bucket) is contrasted with his new wife Megan’s youthful taste and love of color.
