The most memorable shows on TV have more than just great dialogue, intriguing characters, and addicting plot lines—they also have eye-catching sets. Iconic living rooms, bedrooms, and even coffee shops can become crucial to a show’s storyline and overall essence.

From ’90s shows that left their mark to modern marvels everyone is talking about, impressive spaces on TV shows permeate our psyches and sometimes inspire us to open our pocketbooks. If you’ve been trying to recreate a bit of that Friends magic or are pining over the outdoor furniture on Big Little Lies, we’ve got you covered.

Shop the look of five of TV’s most memorable shows below.

If there’s any show that encapsulates the eclectic, shabby chic, and funky cool style of the late ’90s, Friends is it. From Monica’s apartment to the iconic coffee shop Central Perk, here are a few products that can help you capture that look.

“Friends” Apothecary Coffee Table

  • $1

Remember the Friends episode when Rachel buys a coffee table from Pottery Barn and tries to keep Phoebe from finding out she bought it from the chain? Well, this is it. Pottery Barn brought the coffee table back for the show’s 25th anniversary, complete with antique-inspired hardware and CD drawers.

Frasier Crane’s spacious condo in Seattle’s fictional Elliott bay Towers was an homage to 1990s sophistication. While some of the furnishings look dated now, Crane’s investment pieces—think his classic Wassily chair and Eames lounge—prove that his smooth-talking design has staying power. Below, a few picks that bring Frasier style into 2019.

“Big Little Lies”

From Madeline Martha Mackenzie’s (Reese Witherspoon) Pottery Barn-chic beach house to Bonnie Carlson’s (Zoë Kravitz) Bohemian yoga retreat, the set design of the hit HBO show Big Little Lies is, in a word, stunning. We especially love Celeste Wright’s (Nicole Kidman) ranch among the trees, pictured above. Elegant yet comfortable and certifiably California cool, it showcases the best of TV interior design. Start building your own indoor-outdoor mecca with these picks.

“The Good Place”

NBC’s The Good Place tells the story of Eleanor Shellstrop (Kristen Bell), a morally imperfect protagonist who was sent to a heaven-like afterlife by mistake. One thing that’s most certainly not a mistake is the interior design of Eleanor’s house, allegedly designed in the “Icelandic primitive style.” Aside from the terrifying wall of clowns, here are other products that would fit right in.

“The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel”

Comedy shows aren’t always known for interior design, but The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel is a notable exception. Set in 1950s Manhattan, the show depicts a candy-colored world of midcentury style that’s a dream to behold. Midge’s apartment is rich in pastel colors with bright accents and midcentury furniture. Grab some of this classic style with these products.
