The Post’s Mid-Century Modern ‘Mad Men’ Look Contest

Modern Capital's Den

The vintage Saarinen Executive Armchairs are the same ones spotted in the Sterling Cooper office.

In anticipation of the upcoming fourth season of Mad Men (can’t wait; I just caught up on DVD) , the Washington Post is looking for photos of readers’ homes that have the style of the hit show. “Does your DC-area home have that late-’50s-mid-’60s vibe? Send a photo by midnight, July 11 to enter the contest, and we may document your winning home with photos in our July 24 issue, just in time for the TV series’ new season,” the paper says. Here’s the link to the contest page. I submitted these two photos from our 1956 split-level. We’ll see if they make the cut.

The vintage Eames table and chairs and vintage Paul McCobb credenza give our dining room that retro vibe.
