Whether you've seen one episode of Friends or you've seen every episode multiple times, you'd probably have no problem recognizing the orange sofa the group spent so much of their time on in Central Perk — that's how iconic it is. I mean, it's not every day you find a tufted, velvet sofa that also happens to be burnt orange. But, what if that's exactly what you're looking for?
The unforgettable couch had so many cool details (right down to the fringe on the bottom!) that make it pretty much impossible to find an exact likeness — if that's what you want, you'll likely need to find someone who will make a custom replica for you, and in that case I wish you good luck! But that doesn't mean you can't take inspiration from the show and find a stylish orange couch of your own, even if it winds up being little different or more modern than the iconic Central Perk sofa. These personality-filled couches are all great options at different price points that will still infuse a little bit of Friends style into your home. The original couch is so iconic, there can really only be one, but you can consider these sofas an homage to it at least.
This sofa comes in two different sizes (the 90" version is $2,998, and the 116" couch is $3998). It's a bit pricey, and while it's definitely more modern than the actual Friends couch, it's still pretty close in style.
It may not come in velvet — the upholstery is a woven fabric instead — but the color of this couch is pretty much spot on, and the rounded arms and tufting give it a similar vibe to the original sofa.
For something a little more modern and in a color that's a little more muted, this sofa is a good option. The velvet and the button tufting make it similar to the original, but it's a more low key shade of orange.
This sofa swaps out the original's button tufting for channel tufting and it's much more squared off than the original, but the burnt orange color is a close match — , just try to tell me you can't see yourself hanging out on this couch with your closest friends.
For an ultra-affordable take on the orange Central Perk couch, this option totally works. It's almost exactly the same shade of orange, it's tufted, and it has the right velvety feel, but again, it's more square than the original sofa.
If what you seek is a sofa that totally nails the color of the Friends couch but is much simpler and sleeker, this sofa is the pick for you. It gets the fabric totally right, just without the tufting and all the extra little details.
