Vintage vs. Modern

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.
Ive posted just a few pictures  Ive found on the web. The first three are vintage office from the 50's and 60s, while the remaining are modern day offices. There is a clear difference 


The photo to the left is from a website called We Heart It. The office in the picture is combining vintage and modern office ideas, and creates a beautiful office- in fact, Id love for my office to be like that! The page this photo is found on features numerous other glamorous and peaceful office spaces, which I believe to be the current trend, especially for personal or home office spaces. http://weheartit.com/tag/interiors
I hope to do some hunting around to find items to take pictures of myself to to show you some of the fantastic retro office decor floating around today.
