If you don’t want to feel old, stop reading now. Iconic sitcom Friends is about to turn 25 years old, having aired for the first time on 22nd September 1994. That’s right – it’s been a quarter of a century since Rachel, Monica, Phoebe, Joey, Chandler and Ross came on to our screens. We followed their highs and lows over a whopping 236 episodes. And, at the heart of all those scenes in coffeehouse Central Perk was, of course, the orange sofa.
To celebrate the Friends anniversary, Warner Bros. have created 30 replicas of the famous orange sofa and will be placing them all over the world. For the next couple of months, the sofas will be making appearances in New York, London, Dubai and beyond. Want to get comfy, have a muffin, and discuss whether or not Ross and Rachel were actually on a break? Here’s all you need to know.
