Mad Men Star Designs A Playboy Couch
Mad Men costume designer Janie Bryant created classically inspired suits for Brooks Brothers. Now Mad Men star and interior designer Bryan Batt has teamed up with Playboy Enterprises to create a loveseat that pays homage to early 1960s style. "The Hef" is a limited-edition loveseat designed to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Playboy Clubs. The loveseat is hand signed by Playboy Founder, Editor-in-Chief and Chief Creative Officer Hugh M. Hefner and was designed by Batt and manufactured by Brownstone furniture.
It was unveiled at the Las Vegas Market trade show at World Market Center by Batt and several Playboy Club Bunnies. "The Hef" will remain on display for the duration of the show until Friday. The loveseat has gray mohair upholstery, nail head detailing and rosewood side panels and will be in limited production, with only 50 pieces available for sale. It will retail through Batt's New Orleans store Hazelnut New Orleans for $15,000.
