We are coming up on the 50th anniversary of this iconic photo which features “The Mad Men of of Mid-Century Design.” It appeared, believe it or not, in Playboy, July 1961.
For lovers and collectors of mid-century furniture, we think of this image as the Playboy Playmates of the Century.
The photo was accompanied by an excellent article which I highly recommend you read here.
Yes, as you might have suspected, I do read Playboy for the articles.
I also recommend the link to the blog The Selvage Yard.
