Decorate A Room In F.R.I.E.N.D.S. Style – Central Perk

Coffee Shop Friends

We all remember a good old TV Show ‘Friends’, it was the most popular TV show from the ’90s. This little group of friends use to hang out all the time at the coffee shop called Central Perk, and it one of the principal settings of the series.

Central Perk is in New York City’s Greenwich Village, really close to Monica’s apartment. For the first three seasons of the show, Rachel was working a the coffee house as a waitress, and in a season six, Joey also becomes Central Perk’s waiter.
Phoebe Buffay was a regular entertainer at the coffee shop, singing and playing her songs like the famous “Smelly Cat”.

Since this setting is one of the most famous TV show sets of all times, I decided to write one article about Central Perk’s interior and furniture.

The Orange Couch

The large orange couch is the most recognizable furniture item from Central Perk coffee house. Chandler, Joey, Monica, Rachel, Ross, and Phoebe usually sit at this exact couch. We found some similar pieces of furniture that you can buy in US online stores if you want to redecorate your space in Central Perk’s style.

It is an interesting fact that an original sofa was pulled out of the Warner Bros Studios basement storage.
