5 Modern Lamp Shades for Mad Men Inspired Table Lamps
Average Rating: ( 0 votes)
Though the show is over, we’re still hooked on Mad Men’s award winning set design - especially the midcentury style lighting fixtures. If you’re a die-hard fan of the series, transform your dull table lamps and pendants with our Top Five Mad Men-inspired designer modern lamp shades . The Ted Chaough A partner at rival agency Cutler, Gleason, and Chaough, Ted (Kevin Rahm) is the external villain to our hero, Don Draper. In Season Six we see this groovy (if somewhat chaotic) wall pattern in Ted's office. Pull off a similar style with the Retro Lattice Giclee Drum Lamp Shade , a 10-inch shade with a late 60s lattice design printed using a high-definition printmaking technology. The Bert Cooper A founding father of Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce, Bertrand Cooper (Robert Morse) is a collector of Japanese art and architecture. He tops his table lamps with Beige Linen Hardback Oval Lamp Shades - which are not quite white, not quite brown, but somewhere between. The art directors of the TV show likely chose this color since it resembles rice paper and sand gardens. The Don & Megan In the Fifth Season, Don Draper (Jon Ham) moves into a high-rise bachelor apartment in the Upper East Side. Unlike his boring old suburban life, Don’s new digs are vibrant and full of state of the art gadgetry. Inspired by the table lamps in his den, the Orange Faux Silk Drum Lamp Shade reflects the youthful vigor that his new wife (played by Jessica Pare) breathes into Don's life. And like a relic of a bygone era, this drum lamp is hand made to order by California artisans. Roger Sterling – The Mod Years When silver fox Roger Sterling (John Slattery) has his own midlife crisis, his office design goes in a different direction than Don's. Instead of vibrant orange, blues and bold patterns, Sterling goes for two-tone Mod. Inspired by the mid-60s modern art on his walls, the tapered Checkered Black Giclee Modern Lamp Shade has a similar 3D effect. The Joan Holloway Office bombshell Joan Holloway (Christina Hendricks) embodies elegance and curves. Our Coral Peach Drum Lamp Shade is bold and brassy just like Joan. It also has a distinctive hourglass figure, and matches her favorite peachy-pink color palette. Which Mad Men Character Are You? How does your favorite character’s style speak to you?
