Friends super fans now have the chance to centralize their home thanks to a nostalgic new collection from Pottery Barn.
The furniture and interior brand has announced this week that it is one Pottery Barn x Friends collection in honor of the 25th anniversary of the beloved show.
Starting today, July 30, show enthusiasts can shop in the collection, including friends-inspired art, Central Perk mugs and – of course – the famous & # 39; pharmacist's table & # 39; by Rachel and Phoebe from the Pottery Barn catalog.

You can almost smell the opium! It contains a reissue of the pharmacy list in the iconic episode of season six

& # 39; It comes from the past. Like the days of yesteryear & # 39 ;: according to a former VP for the company, Pottery Barn is asked questions every time the episode is broadcast
The collection, with pieces from $ 12.50, will be available online at PotteryBarn.com and in stores.
It contains several works of art on the wall, pillows with the orange Central Perk sofa and the purple door from Monica, and tea towels with the phrase & # 39; Joey does not share food & # 39; and Rachel & # 39; s meat and lady-finger trifle.
There is also a Central Perk brand mug and tumbler, a & # 39; Welcome Friends & # 39; doormat and pillow, and a mug with the words & # 39; You & # 39; re my lobster & # 39; and an illustration of the crustacean.
But most appropriately, Pottery Barn reissues the pharmacy table that was famous in season 6, episode The One with the Apothecary Table, which was first broadcast in January 2016.
Don't tell Gunther! The collection also includes Central Perk mugs and cups

The table – which cost $ 1,099 – was the centerpiece of the main plot of the iconic episode, in which Rachel took the Pottery Barn Apothecary Table home for the apartment she shared with Phoebe.
When Monica warns her that Phoebe will not have it because she hates mass-produced furniture and would like her pieces to have a background story, Rachel makes up one – telling her friend that it is from the & # 39; days of yesteryear & # 39; was and she bought it from & # 39; days of yore & # 39; and they bou at a flea market for & # 39; fifty-one dollars & # 39 ;, in & # 39; old time pricing & # 39 ;.
Rachel then buys more items from the store's catalog and forms a historical story for each.
But she gets into trouble when she visits Ross & # 39; apartment and sees that he has bought the same table. Afraid that Phoebe will see it and know that she has lied, she insists that Ross covers it up – although in the end the truth comes out.

Pottery shed was so central to the episode that the name of the brand was mentioned 18 times.
But a spokesperson said BuzzFeed last year it was not a paid product placement contract despite the incredible broadcasting time for the brand.
& # 39; Pottery Barn did not pay for product placement of the pharmacy table in the eleventh installment of the sixth season of Friends. The table has been donated and we remain grateful for inclusion in this episode & # 39 ;, said a brand representative.
Production designer Greg Grande even told it Vox this month the pharmacy was just one of the many products that companies would let him use for free.
Nowadays, branded products, such as a can of Coca-Cola, nowadays usually have the name & # 39; greek & # 39 ;, or covered or disguised. If a brand name is to be included in the show, it involves contracts and payments.
Fun fact: according to Pottery Barn, the brand did not really pay for the product placement in the iconic episode
Good advertising: the production designer was allowed to shop one of their stores for free

But Friends was broadcast dozens of years ago – and it was so popular that brands would regularly use Grande stuff for free to use, counting on exposure to make it worthwhile.
Grande said that Pottery Barn him & # 39; carte blanche & # 39; gave to & # 39; equip the Phoebe apartment the way I wanted & # 39 ;.
Even without payment from Warner Bros. Pottery Barn benefited enormously from the arrangement.
In 2004, then executive vice-president of Pottery Barn & # 39; s parent company named Williams-Sonoma Inc. Patrick Connolly the episode & # 39; the gift that keeps on giving & # 39 ;.
& # 39; The phones light up with catalog requests every time it is broadcast, & # 39; he said.
Coming soon: a new Friends pop-up will be coming to New York City on 7 September and will remain open until 6 October
