'Mad' chairs

These chairs are used as the Draper family's kitchen set in the wonderful AMC show "Mad Men."

I was so shocked to see such a familiar chair pattern that I had to freeze the show and take a photo of the scene to email it to my mom, who confirms that yes, we had that exact set, and we purchased them in 1950. That's pretty good accuracy on the part of the set decorators, since the first season of the show was set in 1960.

Hee! We had the same dining room set as Donna's house on "That 70's Show."

I love good set decoration. And I know how Mindy feels--
The last dinette set my grandparents purchased before they died was very modern for a couple of old Iowa farmers--it was the one the Foremans had in their kitchen! (The second set, with green vinyl chairs--not the first one, with the wire basket chairs.)
