Executive Desks

Even if you are not aspiring to the lifestyle of Don Draper, you may still want to take inspiration from his mid-century styled office space.

Mad Men may have long completed its run on television, but we are seeing it live on through the current trends in office furniture.

Stylish retro feature pieces are happily finding their way back to the forefront of office furniture and design from panelled walls to orange and yellow hues of soft furnishings. Others, such as the office chairs by Herman Miller are the classic style that has never left.

For an up to date approach on a classic, we have picked a few of our favourite pieces to allow you to have your very own Mad Men styled office this year.

Begin with an executive desk

The Arche Executive desk (above) will have you clinching the next big business deal with style. For a Mad Men edge choose an American Walnut or a Dark Brown leather desk top.

Choose a stylish and functional office chair

The team at Herman Miller, founded in 1923, helped to style the Mad Men set, so there is no better option for your mid-century designed office. Choose an office chair from their collection such as the recently remastered Aeron Chair keeping the retro vibes of their original creations, with all the benefits of ergonomic mastery.

If an executive style leather chair is more your style then consider the Humanscale Freedom Task Chair, opt for a dark brown to reflect the masculine office of Don Draper.
