Mad Men Reference Material

It seems the British are in love with Mad Men as much as we are on this side of the pond. Midcentury Magazine has an article on the Mad Men Effect (warning: pdf link). They site some of the reference material Mad Men set designer Amy Wells used when researching for the show:
Wells extensively researched the period by studying early decorating books and magazines, including Fifties Furniture, Creative Home Decorating, The Doubleday Book of Interior Decorating and Inside Today’s Home, before putting her set designs together and scouring for authentic pieces from the original era either from prop houses, American-based design stores such as Room Service, Modernica, vintage boutiques like Deja Vu and antique markets.
Looks like I've got some reading to do.
