We Redecorated the "Friends" Apartments for 2016

Gabrielle Savoie

Even though the beloved sitcom Friends is over 20 years old, it's still a solid go-to choice for any Netflix binge session. But while the jokes that shaped our younger years are still very much relevant to today's reality, the interior décor of the TV show is a little more dated. In the '90s, Monica and Rachel spearheaded the shabby-chic movement while Chandler and Joey made bachelor pads iconic—two styles that aren't necessarily coveted in 2016.

As home décor editors, we can't help but examine every last detail of TV set designs—and while we still enjoy reruns of our favourite Friends episodes as much as the next person, we have to admit the purple walls hurt our eyes a little. So we took it upon ourselves to reimagine the show's interiors—if for no other reason than to satisfy our aesthetic tendencies. Step inside the redecorated apartments of Monica, Rachel, Joey, Chandler, and Ross if they existed in 2016.
