Today lets have a look at some office decor. Modern office decor is so different compared to the 50's and 60's. The furniture has changed so much, and now I feel its a bit cold or tries to hard to be clean, straight, 'modern' or 'contemporary'. Again, Mad Men creates a fantastic reinterpretation of the 1960's office place. Typewriters are busy in the background, couches, chairs and desks represent the time period and there is a slight romance to it all, that really doesn't exists in the modern office.
