Mad Men fans - did you catch Don Draper's new digs? His swanky apartment on Manhattan's Upper East side boasts stunning Mid-Century design, taking inspiration from the architecture of Frank Lloyd Wright. But my favorite part of this new space is by far the lighting - especially the stunning blue and white striped swag chandelier that balances the asymmetrical fireplace and creates a focal point in the room. I love its clean lines, vintage styling, and unexpected color palette - and I think it's time that the swag makes a comeback! I've rounded up a few of my favorite Mad Men-inspired swag chandeliers to start the retro revolution:
1. Seeri Double Swag Pendant Light 2. Swag Style Kalahari Lines Plug-In Chandelier 3. Granada Polished Brass Pendant Swag Light 4. Swag Style Wood Grain Giclee Shade Plug in Chandelier
5. Stacy Garcia Arno Daybreak Giclee Plug-In Swag Chandelier 6. Stacy Garcia Lexington Stripe Avocado Plug-In Swag Chandelier 7. Stacy Garcia Porthole Giclee Plug-In Swag Chandelier 8. Swag Style Retro Dots & Waves Shade Plug-In Chandelier
