Mad about Midcentury Modern.

In honor of the Knoll Classics Sale at DWR, we're sharing some of our favorite Knoll Blog posts from the archives.

Originally posted April 2, 2012: The return of Mad Men has us buzzing about midcentury modern decor even more than usual. The AMC series pays incredible attention to recreating 1960s details and the sets don't dissappoint. We've rounded up three of our favorite Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce looks for your Don Draper-worthy home or office.

A drop of high viscosity liquid inspired Eero Saarinen to craft the Saarinen Table's unique shape. Roger Sterling uses this table as a desk in his Mad Men office, and it's worth noting that our CEO at DWR does the same.

Designed in 1954, designer Florence Knoll Basset referred to her Lounge series as the "meat and potatoes" of an interior, though adding some flavor to these design staples doesn't hurt. The Florence Knoll Sofa truly pops when outfitted with a bright upholstery.

The Nelson Spindle Clock is one of the many quirky clocks designed by George Nelson & Associates in the 1940s and '50s. A statement clock not only adds a fun touch to the Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce office, it's a necessity. One wouldn't want to keep the ad executives (or Joan) waiting.
