Take a Virtual Tour of Don Draper’s Mod Park Avenue Apartment from ‘Mad Men’

It’s been almost a year since “Mad Men” ended its seven-season run, but if you’re jonesing for a fix of mid-century nostalgia, it’s your lucky day. ArchDaily, in collaboration with Archilogic, has created a virtual tour of Don Draper’s swanky Upper East Side apartment that he moved into in season five with his new wife Megan. From the sunken living room and orange kitchen cabinets to the white carpet and retro window treatments, set designer Claudette Didul didn’t miss a beat when designing an authentic 1966 residence. But as ArchDaily points out, she also managed to create “a psychogram of a man who is about to fall apart at the seams.”

The show mostly featured the large living room and the master bedroom (clearly, many a scene was shot in the bed), but the virtual tour is especially fun because it brings you into lesser-seen spots like the Danish-style dining room, the mysterious windowless room off the master suite, and the children’s bedrooms.

When exploring the apartment, users have the option to do so through the floor plan, a bird view, or a person view. There’s also a list of all the furniture, broken down by type, or you can click on a piece and get all its specifics, including its materials, description, and history.

Didul took inspiration from the 1960s books of bestselling interior design author Betty Pepis and the 1965 book “Decoration U.S.A.” by Jose Wilson and Arthur Leaman, all of which influenced the bold and often clashing color choices.  Of the apartment, “Mad Men” creator Matthew Weiner told Interior Design magazine: “Certainly, the Drapers got a decorator. It’s right out of the pages of a magazine! The white carpeting Megan wanted is not something you can really live with, which again tells a story about her character.” He also said it was his favorite set from the show: “For me, personally, it satisfies a lot of my fantasies. It’s very sexy. There’s texture, wood. It’s open, but you feel protected. It’s very cosmo-politan. You feel smart there. You feel handsome.”
