Friends The Set Design

Friends is the smash-hit comedy focused on the lives of six friends living in New York City. Ross, Chandler and Joey made up the boys while Phoebe, Rachel and Monica made up the girls. It quickly became the most watched show on TV and was shown all over the world. Although it ended in 2004, it remains very popular and it is repeated regularly on channels in hundreds of countries. We are particular fans of wonderful and quirky art seen on the sets. Set decorator Greg J. Grande chose these pieces and many of them have become internationally recognised and highly sought after due to the success of the show.Read more »

The Coffee Shop: Central Perk

The Coffee Shop: Central Perk

During Friends’ hugely successful ten year run the world fell in love with six friends living in New York City. With so many classic episodes it’s unsurprising that the show is still repeated every day and remains as popular as ever. New York plays a big part throughout the series and the different sets of Friends are some the most recognizable ever produced for television. The Friends café, Central Perk, with its now famous orange couch, acted as the anchor set to the other apartment sets. This quirky coffee shop had a great mix of styles and décor. From the famous Central Perk sign to the Persian rugs to the always reserved coffee table, the Friends coffee shop was often copied but never equalled.Read more

Monica and Rachel’s Apartment

Monica and Rachel’s Apartment

Monica and Rachel’s apartment probably had the most on-screen time during the show’s lengthy run. It changed slightly through the years with the odd new piece of furniture, but it largely remained the same. Like most of the Friends sets, it has a great eclectic mix of décor. It was originally Monica’s apartment before Rachel’s moves in and the comedy-laden journey began. The apartment’s purple walls and purple door became a famous part of this set design. As the seasons progress, the apartment briefly became Joey and Chandlers home, and Phoebe also lived there, before finally ending up being Monica and Chandler’s apartment.Read more

Joey and Chandler’s Place

Joey and Chandler’s Place

Joey and Chandler’s apartment is the other Friends set that has become a distinctive television apartment that is immediately recognizable. It definitely has a more masculine feel (no purple in sight). The iconic La-Z-Boy recliner chairs and the Foosball table became synonymous with Joey and Chandler. The vintage posters and large ceramic dog equally became well known additions as the seasons progressed. We have seen it with no furniture, with just a canoe, with patio furniture and with the biggest entertainment unit ever “handcrafted”. This apartment also became home to a few different characters through the years. From Ross to Rachel to Elle Macpherson and who can forget Eddie.Read more
