10 homes that belong in "Mad Men"

Everyone wants to live like Don Draper -- at least when it comes to the stunning aesthetic that surrounds him.

As soon as the TV drama series "Mad Men" first aired in 2007, people started paying a lot more attention to the mid-century modern look of the 1960s. From the slick Scandinavian office furniture at the Sterling Cooper ad agency to the enviable New York real estate owned by its employees, "Mad Men" had its finger on the pulse of modernism from the start.

Even now, as "Mad Men" is on the eve of premiering its final episodes, the enthusiastic mid-century revival hasn't died down. Many homebuyers are still eagerly seeking out properties that feature large glass windows, natural exterior materials like wood, open design concepts that bring residents closer to nature and indoor-outdoor living spaces.

Take a look at these 10 mid-century modern homes that echo "Mad Men."
