Picnik collage mad menShhh. Not everything on the "Mad Men"set is genuine 1960s vintage Manhattan. The sofa, chairs and coffee table in Don Draper's office are made in Los Angeles by Futurama. Owner Jeffrey Perry, who began selling vintage furniture in 1986 and has since reproduced classics in the manner of William Haines and Vladimir Kagan, created the Boxy sofa pictured here with a nod to the late Southern California designer Milo Baughman.

Made from walnut veneer with steel legs, it starts at $1,495 and can be ordered in a variety of upholstery fabrics and wood finishes. The chair that Draper (Jon Hamm) is sitting in, above left, costs $750; the coffee table is $495. Pieces can be custom-sized, and delivery time averages two to four weeks.

Note: The showroom listed on the website is no longer open and Futurama's phone number has been changed to (213) 706-9818.
