Getting My Ducks in a Row

Mr. Kutcher is usually a deterrent from me seeing any movie he’s in. Really, most romantic comedies are usually avoided at all costs.  So go figure I really liked A Lot Like Love (cringing with guilt and embarrassment).

If you’re looking for the perfect Mad Men desk, circa the Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce years (1963) this desk leans in that style. A Lot Like Florence Knoll.

A real vintage one (depending on the condition) can be found in the ballpark of $15,000. Thomas Hayes Gallery and Metro Retro Furniture have great examples. I’m not judging you but replica’s can be found at Modernica starting at $2900.
