Tour the set: Friends
The off-white living room sofa
“The great thing is that [the Friends sets] for the most part are set. You don't have to do much but maintenance,” said Greg, who has gone on to design the set of Joey and recently the corporate offices of SnapChat, the makers of the hugely popular app. For instance, Monica’s creamy white roll-arm couch is a staple through many of the seasons of the show. You can still purchase the dead ringer of this sofa at Pottery Barn, the PB Comfort Roll Arm Slipcover Box Edge Cushion Sofa, from $1,577.
The living room seating area
Sure, the medium-purple wall colour isn’t in style anymore, nor is the black-edged floral print rug, but nearly everything in this apartment has stood the test of time and looks great. For instance, the coffee table. It’s a large square shape in a rustic natural finish with sculpted legs, and it fits in perfectly in this casual space. Restoration Hardware offers a similar version called the Balustrade Salvaged Wood coffee table, from $1,595 USD. Although not a replica, the Clara chair from Crate and Barrel provides similar proportions, as does the Dhurrie chair from Anthropologie.
A little bit French Country, a little bit bright-boho, we love that the kitchen is the heart of this home, just like it is in ours. Set designer Greg Grande shopped at the store Williams-Sonoma as a source for many of the items in the kitchen, as the character Monica is a chef. Another element of the kitchen that underscores that Monica works in the culinary world is the top-end range. A pedestal table and cane-back chairs add a refinement that is counterbalanced by the zingy shade of blue cabinetry.
