During a recent research forage through old magazines I found this fantastic stylized illustration which
could have come straight off a MadMen storyboard. It manages to pull together all the essential references for the perfect 1950s setting. A Loewy inspired hourglass shade on a tripod lamp, Jacqueline Groag style fabric wallhanging, Lucienne Day cushion and a Finn Juhl sofa. All combined with some groovy sounds and great clothes, this captures the aspirational style of 1957 - just a pity about the cigarettes!
