Great news for fans of the 1990's hit T.V. show Friends! Pottery Barn has announced that they are going to be releasing a Friends themed collection at the end of July. This is exciting news for the cult fans of the show. If you've ever met a Friends fan, chances are they were a superfan. There are many of us!
Pottery Barn told POPSUGAR that the much anticipated set “will include 14 products ranging in price from $13 to $1,099, and the line has everything from decorative accessories to furniture and textiles.” The collection is in honor of the 25th anniversary of Friends, which premiered in 1994. Suddenly we feel old.
This collection is said to include Central Perk mugs, and the infamous apothecary table from the hilarious episode, "The One With The Apothecary Table" in season 6. In this episode, Rachel buys an apothecary table from Pottery Barn, then tries to hide where she bought it from from Phoebe, her roommate who hates the large chain store. Eventually, she is caught, but by this time Phoebe is already in love with the stuff that Rachel bought. So much so, that she makes her buy an additional lamp. Overall, the episode was a brilliant example of product placement, and now Pottery Barn can cash in further by actually having the apothecary table (and much more) available for purchase. Score!
So far it's unclear what other items will be available in this collection, so I guess we will just have to wait and see later this month. Save up your money Friends superfans, because you might just want to come home with all of it.
To make things even more interesting, Pottery Barn is holding a contest that you can enter. The prize is a trip to L.A., a $1000 shopping spree at Pottery Barn, and the chance to see the Central Perk set up close and personal. Sounds like the kind of thing a true Friends fan would love.
So keep your eyes peeled for the new collection from Pottery Barn. And remember, if you're feeling nostalgic you can always watch the series on Netflix (over and over), until it is taken out of the lineup in 2020.
