Its kind of cool to see the mid-century look done as it would have been done back then. Nowadays, you see people pulling elements from all over so long as they have a bunch of iconic pieces (throw a saarinen table with some eames chairs and a knoll table).
If you are looking at the Mad Men sets, you don't see today's mix and match but rather a set of pieces chosen by the character to match their aesthetic without the influences of what has remained popular (and in production). Look at the difference between Don or Pete's (I like his couch a lot) office with Roger's all white fiberglass, leather, and marble space.
