The sitcom Friends has been around since 1994, and as the years go by, so does the show acquire new generations of viewers. The comedy has withstood the test of time, and to say that it has aged well wouldn’t do it enough justice. Remember that episode where Rachel bought an apothecary table from Pottery Barn and tried to hide it from Phoebe?
Friends is still very much the hottest show in townWell, the chain store has been part of the Friends family for so long that they’ve decided to do something in honor of the show. Without a doubt, fans will be over the moon once Pottery Barn’s plans come into fruition, and we certainly can’t wait!
The 25thFriends anniversary is right around the corner, and the furniture company is launching a line in commemoration of when the sitcom first hit the screens. Among the items being launched will be a replica of that famous apothecary table, one that gained legendary status after episode eleven of season six was named after it (The One with the Apothecary Table).
Oh, Central Perk. What would the show’s characters have done without their go-to café? In honor of the coffee shop, Pottery Barn also intends to launch mugs that Joey, Chandler, and co. would have used during their all too frequent stops there.
It’s sad to imagine that there could be a soul out there who has never watched a single episode of the hit series, and if you happen to be one of them, it’s on Netflix and you can binge-watch it and have the best laughs of your life.
About that apothecary table, well, Rachel (played by Jennifer Aniston) was at the time roommates with Phoebe (played by Lisa Kudrow). Having come from money, she always had a taste for the finer things in life, so getting the Pottery Barn table wasn’t that of a big deal.
Soon after she’d bought it, however, she learned from Monica (portrayed by Courteney Cox) that Phoebe despised the store. Rachel then ended up lying that she got the table from the flea market, but the whole lie unraveled when Ross (portrayed by David Schwimmer) came clean after Phoebe spilled wine on his table, one identical to the one Rachel bought.
Mark the Date
According to Architectural Digest, the Pottery Barn Friends line will be available for ordering as from 30th July, although the company is yet to announce the prices of various items. If you’re a fan, you’d better place your order early enough because as sure as night follows day, these items are going to be sold out faster than the speed of light.
Ever since the advent of social media, multiple pages have been created in honor of the show, including meme pages or simply accounts created for episode recaps. Either way, the sitcom’s popularity has made it a suitable marketing venture for various companies.
Didn’t IKEA just recently recreate the beloved living room in Monica’s apartment? That’s where the cast spent most of their time, and fans never seem to have enough of it.
Courteney Cox also sent social media into a frenzy when she visited Monica’s apartment in NYC, showing just how much the show hit it off with audiences.
