March marks the return of Season 5 of Mad Men. This show has inspired design in many ways. Fashion, product and interior design alike could not resist the cool and funky elements of this era. Personally, I have always been interested in mid century design and have discovered a few interiors and accents that I wanted to share. I hope this will inspire you to incorporate some “Mod-ness” into your spaces.
The fabulous cast of Mad Men.
This vignette shows a great example of mod/vintage design with loud and funky colors mixed with earthy organic furniture pieces.
This has to be one of my favorite office nooks. This is a great collaboration between mid century furniture within a traditional home. It is so simple yet groovy!
Check out the new 50’s Wallpaper and Fabric Collection from Sanderson that we just added to our J Banks Design Library. Incorporating these retro prints into an accent wall, or even a pillow will instantly transform your room into a vintage pad.
No mod interior would be complete without one of Charles and Ray Eames’ famous white moulded plastic chairs. The silhouette of the chairs and table against the warm earth tones of the room really evoke the spirit of vintage design.
Make a mod statement with a few bold accent pillows depicting classic modern chairs. So much fun!
These mod inspired outdoor chairs and tables mix cool lines with rustic galvanized steel that will give any outdoor space a retro flair. Joni loved them so much she purchased them for her own home and for our retail store.
These fabulous lamps are in the J Banks Design retail show room now. I love the futuristic and natural shape paired with a crisp white shade. Classic vintage look! (If they look familiar, you might recognize them from Rachel Zoe’s personal pad on her show last season.)
Also check out our great looking selection of mod inspired vases. I love the beautiful colors and curvy lines. How fab!
Happy March Modness!
