Mad Men celebrates Finnish design

We all know that Finland is the design center of the world! The clever writers and set designers at Mad Men know it too. This season opens at the close of 1964 with the new firm of SCDP in the Time Life building.

Everyone's favorite character, Roger Sterling, has the best lines and the best office furniture. Check out the tulip table in his gleaming, white office. The Tulip Table was designed by Eero Saarinen. He also designed the arch in St. Louis and Dulles airport.

If you can't watch Mad Men on television, you can listen to the Mad Men radio station on Pandora. Enjoy!

P.S. You can see Eero Saarinen's Tulip chairs on the deck of the Starship Enterprise!
