SAN FRANCISCO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Pottery Barn, a member of the Williams-Sonoma, Inc. (NYSE: WSM) portfolio of brands, together with Warner Bros. Consumer Products, today unveils an exclusive collection of home décor and accessories in celebration of the 25th anniversary of the Emmy® Award-winning show FRIENDS.
A playful take on the hit comedy’s many adventures, the new FRIENDS x Pottery Barn collection celebrates an iconic design by reissuing the famous Apothecary Coffee Table as a tribute to the sitcom’s Pottery Barn-themed episode in season 6, aptly named “The One With The Apothecary Table.” True to its original form, the Apothecary Coffee Table features antique-inspired hardware and drawers originally designed for CDs.
In addition to the Apothecary Coffee Table, the new FRIENDS x Pottery Barn collection features designs inspired by memorable moments from iconic episodes, including Central Perk Commuter Mugs and trifle-printed Tea Towels. The assortment also includes decorative pillows featuring Monica Geller’s iconic purple apartment door and the tufted orange Central Perk couch, while FRIENDS’ classic one-liners like “You’re My Lobster” and “Joey Doesn’t Share Food” adorn coffee mugs. Fans who have memorized the show’s opening credits will delight in the signature fountain scene and “I’ll Be There for You” wall art as well as a Welcome FRIENDS doormat with the show’s logo.
“FRIENDS is one of the most beloved sitcoms of all time, and we are excited to celebrate the show’s 25th anniversary with this spirited FRIENDS-inspired collection for the home,” said Marta Benson, Pottery Barn President. “The Pottery Barn assortment is an ode to the enduring popularity of the show, its cast of characters and nostalgic references, and it gives FRIENDS fans yet another way to enjoy, relive and share their favorite moments.”
