My daughter requested a new desk for her real estate business. She wanted a desk that looks like it came from Mad Men. Let me know what you think

Don’t know much about “Mad Men”, but having spent the majority of my adult life behind a desk, I feel confident in saying that is one mighty fine desk—beautiful!

Impressive desk
nice touch on the:
Corners
Drawer pulls
drawer inserts
and sides.

I need to know about these “Mad men” if the desk is any example of their work!

That is top shelf, sir. From what I know of the show, though, there should be a bottle of bourbon or something in that drawer :) Again, outstanding work. Your daughter will love it!

Never seen the show, but that is a pretty cool desk. Definitely something unique that you won’t see everyday. Well done, be proud.

Very 60’s looking. Right out of Playboy, just like Don Drapers Apartment.

I honestly have never seen Mad Men, however I am familiar enough with the theme to know it is fashionably late 50s through mid 60s era… That desk fits in to that pretty well, although there are some very G&G features to it that I would not expect in a 1950s / 1960s piece of furniture as well… Having said that, it IS drop dead gorgeous.

You certainly built a desk any executive would be proud to sit at. The style and color would fit perfect on the show.

Very impressive. I’d say you hit the nail on the head with this one. Don Draper would be proud.
