IKEA Recreates the Iconic Living Rooms From Your Favorite TV Shows

Have you always wanted to have an inviting living room like Monica Geller or Homer Simpson? Well, now you can.

Using IKEA products — couches, tables, rugs, paint, plants, and the like — the company recreated an iconic living room from each show. It’s all part of their new United Arab Emirates advertising campaign entitled the ‘Real Life Series’. The Swedish brand chose three iconic family rooms on TV and then replicated them using IKEA furniture only.

The three featured rooms include Friends, Stranger Things, and The Simpsons. However, each room touches on a particular function as well. For instance, Monica’s apartment is the “Room for Mates”, Joyce’s living room is the “Room for Everyone” and “The Simpson’s living room is the “Room for Families.”

Although some rooms had to be personalized or painted to get the right look, the results are kind of incredible.
Thus, the only thing missing is the live studio audience!

Ikea has recreated iconic living room sets from famous TV series: FriendsStranger Things and The Simpsons.

The massive purple apartment occupied by Rachel and Monica through most of the run of Friends.

IKEA sells a wide variety of furniture, so the mismatched but matching look of the furniture from the series comes through in the IKEA recreation, which the brand not-so-subtly labeled a “Room for mates.” In the Friends look-alike apartment, the French “Jouets” framed print is replaced with a vintage car poster, and some of the decors like lamps, plants, and pillows differ, but the result stays very close to the original.

The company used its MALA paint to write the alphabet on the wall and SOLVINDEN LED lights to complete the interdimensional communications system. A couple of chairs, tables, and a couch strewn with throw pillows complete the look. Of course, it wouldn’t be the Stranger Things room without those Christmas lights. IKEA used colored string lights and even suggests paint and brushes for the painted-on alphabet.

The iconic couch — famous from the gags that open each episode — sits against a pink wall with green carpeting, a purple side table, and crooked painting of a sailboat. It remains faithful right down to the askew picture frame above the couch and sparse decorations.

Climate Change Signs: How Do We Know?

Our climate is changing around us faster than predicted. From more frequent and extreme storms to unprecedented heatwaves, we’re indeed feeling the impacts of human-caused global warming. The icebergs are melting, various locations are experiencing greater flooding, wildfires are happening more frequently, and so on.

Specifically, scientists have studied past climate changes to understand the factors that can cause the planet to warm or cool. The big ones are changes in solar energy, ocean circulation, volcanic activity as well as the number of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. Thus, they have each played a role at times. However, human activities are not an exception since it is believed to be main contributors to such increases in average global temperatures

And although we’re all concerned about climate change when it looks like a problem for future generations, we still ask ourselves, ‘will climate change even affect me?’ No matter what we care about, climate change is already affecting our world today. While we still have time to limit the worst impact, we have collected 15 great reasons to start acting now.

These photos illustrate the state of the planet and our climate, as it has changed over the past decade. They reveal how much seriously we must consider the climate change issues!
