We don’t think the uber-chic, ever-polished Joan Harris would approve of this pretty basic, slightly cluttered midtown apartment that her real-life counterpart Christina Hendricks just picked up, but seeing that the actress is so well known for her timeless fashion sense, we think she’ll turn it into her very own glam pad in no time.

The Daily News reports that Hendricks and her husband, actor Geoffrey Arend, bought the one-bedroom unit at the Parc Vendome at 353 West 56th Street for $1.16 million. The timing makes sense, as “Mad Men,” which films in Los Angeles, is airing its series finale in just a couple weeks.

The 800-square-foot apartment features a wood-burning fireplace flanked by cut-out alcoves, original oak plank floors, and tasteful moldings and arched doorways. The cozy den/office offers a bonus space, as does the classic foyer.

The kitchen is billed as renovated, but we think it could use a bit of updating. And we’re not so sure about the bar blocking the entrance.

Perhaps Hendricks chose the building to maintain a low profile; “The Parc Vendome is notorious for its high percentage–49%–of absentee owners, who only use their homes as pieds-a-terre,” reports the News.
