Drape(r)s and Sofas and More

Modernica + "Mad Men" = '60s sofa spectacularness



    Drape(r)s and Sofas and More
    The couch Don and Joan sit upon? From Modernica.

    The elegant and simultaneously sad/hopeful poster for the fourth season of "Mad Men" may have nary a stick of furniture in it.

    Which is a bold move for a bold show that is much associated with a particular look and mood, much of which is inspired by the Eames-y chairs and glossy coffee tables seen on the series.

    If you've ever found yourself wishing you could Draper-up your pad just a skosh -- and we'd do it now, before the series reaches the beaded-curtain-shag-carpet-love-pit era -- look to Modernica's prop department for inspiration.

    The local furniture giant pointed out a particular blue sofa that its props department provided for a scene in season 3. Like three chairs united in some sort of sofa-esque symphony. Call it "doctor's office chic" and put a few fishing magazines next to it and you're set.

    See more of Modernica's "Mad Men"-y furniture at its props site. We like the page of vintage telephones best. All those push buttons.

    Season 4 starts on Sunday, July 25.
