Have you ever watched TV and been in awe of the sets? We have! Which is why we are running a series of blog posts showing you how to ‘get the look’ from some of the hottest TV shows around. We’ve shown you Ugly Betty, we’ve given you a glimpse of Mad Men, and in our latest post we’ll take you through a mix of different series and show you some of our favorite furniture pieces! So don’t forget to keep your eyes peeled next time you are watching television. Who knows, you may discover a piece of furniture that you love!
First up is The Good Wife. And no, we aren’t showing you the incredibly beautiful apartment of Alicia Florrick, nor are we focusing in on the stylish offices of Lockhart and Gardner, instead we have glimpsed some of our top iconic pieces in the Cook County courthouse. We think it’s a crime that the EA 116 Chairs from Charles Eames’ Aluminium Group have gained their place in this courtroom, although we are pretty sure that it would be a comfortable trial!
Ok, the black one. We’ll admit it. But then so is Owen and Cristina’s relationship in Grey’s Anatomy. They may have a tempestuous relationship, but they definitely have a super cool apartment. We love how gritty their firehouse is. You may not be able to integrate a fire pole into your own home, but you can definitely introduce exposed brick walls, and vintage style furniture, such as the DAR Chair and Tulip Table!
You don’t have to live in Seattle to enjoy a touch of class like Frasier Crane. Here at EMFURN, we adore his palatial apartment, but love how cozy it is too. Next to the window, with the impressive view, is sat a Charles Eames Classic Lounge Chair. Frasier himself summed up the feel of the apartment to his father Martin, in the pilot episode of the show.
Frasier: So what do you think of what I’ve done with the place? You know, every item here was carefully selected. The lamp by Corbu, this chair by Eames, and this couch is an exact replica of the one Coco Chanel had in her Paris atelier.
Martin: Nothing matches.
Frasier: Well, it’s a style of decorating – it’s called eclectic. The theory behind it is, if you have really fine pieces of furniture, it doesn’t matter if they match – they will go together.
We might not always agree with Frasier but on this fact we definitely thinks he’s hit the nail on the head – eclectic can be good!
