TV Sofas: Can You Guess?

Share

What’s in a sofa?

Everything.

It may just seem like a combination of legs, arms, material and padding, but in fact, it is the symbol of a home and a central point of modern life.

Perhaps it’s because a sofa is where almost everything happens.

Whether it be sleeping, relaxing, talking, resting, expressing love, or spending quality time with loved ones, sofas are a significant part of our daily lives.

Even in our favourite TV shows, some sofas end up just as famous as the story and actors themselves.

Although we get lost in the gripping storylines and what’s happening in the show, sometimes we notice more than we realise.

There are simple props that we associate with certain shows, and once we spot them, we know exactly where it belongs.

As much as a sofa is seen as an insignificant prop, it is not just for sitting on, but a focal point in getting to know characters.

In some shows, particularly comedies and sitcoms, a social setting is the most common place we can resonate with characters.

Without seeing them in a place they feel comfort, like relaxing on a sofa, their characters wouldn’t appear as genuine, and for us to feel an attachment towards them, parts of their lives need to reflect our own.

So, if you’re a true TV aficionado, let’s see if you can recognise these iconic TV sofas!

THE SIMPSONS

Yes, this is no other but the mundane, brown sofa our yellow friends cram themselves on in every episode of The Simpsons.

If you didn’t get this one, let’s just say that you’ve been missing out on the greatest hit television show of all time.

A U.S animated sitcom with a cult following, The Simpsons satirical depiction of working-class life has everybody of all ages in stitches, and is still going strong since premiering in 1989.

Homer proves the value of a sofa and the truth in ‘one man’s trash is another man’s treasure’, when he brings home this sofa he found on the pavement, which was thrown out by their neighbour Ned Flanders.

From their sofa being found on the ceiling to being blown-up to finding unexpected guests like Wilma and Fred from the Flintstones, the crazy couch gags in the opening credits of every episode represents a sofa as a symbol of unity, comfort, and a much-needed asset in the home.

Of course, a home wouldn’t be a home without a sofa we love, and we should appreciate it for its charm, as it never fails to get our beloved family in one spot!

GAME OF THRONES

Of course, it is the one and only bizarre yet noble Iron Throne from HBO’s Game of Thrones.

Adapted from George Martin’s best-selling book series, ‘A Song of Ice and Fire’, this American fantasy-drama series has gained an international fanbase and is particularly admired for its complex characters, unpredictable plot, sprawling narrative, and epic production value.

The titular throne everyone is vying for is crafted with over 1000 enemy swords that have fallen in battle.

This piece of furniture is the reason for bloodshed, rebellion and war in this story of scheming and gaming that has plagued Westeros throughout the series.

Although it looks pretty uncomfortable and not the idea of the luxurious, soft velvety chair a monarch deserves, anybody privileged to sit on this throne is the lord of all seven kingdoms.

We may not want a chair crafted with lethal-looking swords, but there’s no doubt it’d make an epic statement piece in our living rooms!

However, we could feel like royalty, as there is nothing stopping us from grabbing hold of the sofa that gives us a wonderful feel factor, and one with a design that everyone will die for!

THE BIG BANG THEORY

Another brown sofa unwanted by its previous owner, although not so mundane as the Simpsons’, resides in the home of Leonard and Sheldon in The Big Bang Theory.

A laugh-out-loud American sitcom based on a band of crazy physicists, blends geekiness and intellect with general day-to-day situations, putting a comical spin on life, and encouraging an outlandish way of thinking.

Every fan of this witty and socially awkward series knows who the left side of the sofa belongs to - yep, that's right, it's Dr. Sheldon, and you’ll always find him there.  

Anybody mad enough to plonk themselves in ‘Sheldon’s spot’ is stepping on some dangerous ice, because as far as he’s concerned, it is “the singular location in space around which revolves [his] entire universe."

Although he takes it a little too far, or maybe above and beyond, we can't deny that we all have our favourite spot on our sofa!

So, never feel too bad for snatching back that comfortable spot that gives you the luxury you deserve!

If you haven't got a favourite sofa spot, you’re definitely missing out on the joy a sofa brings.

Perhaps now is the time to get a sofa that has you head over heels once and for all!

Dug up from Warner Bros basement studio - literally - this great, orange mohair couch belongs to the Central Perk coffee shop in the hit U.S comedy, Friends.

At its prime in the 2000s, Friends is deemed one the best sitcoms of all time, and is centred on 6 close friends dealing with love and life in the bustling city of New York.

Our love for Friends and its complicated yet magnetic characters have influenced cultures around the world, particularly having a strong impact on language style, fashion and business inception.

Although this old-fashioned sofa is a bit worn, it must have an irresistible charm, as it’s the one spot these funny bunch always reserve in this coffee shop - the ultimate hangout spot.

Mind you, it does look extremely comfortable, and wouldn't doubt that when you sit on it you’d sink into its velvety glory.

It’s the kind of snuggly sofa that makes you want to go to a coffee shop and spend a few hours indulging in hot, creamy coffees with a friend, and with these friends’ obsession with coffee, they never let us forget how wonderful it tastes!

Better yet, why not bring the coffee shop vibe to your home, and bag a sofa that makes all your friends want to come over and have a nice hot beverage.

 

 

 

Don't give up just yet, you’re almost there...

GOGGLEBOX

Flaunting a timeless design, this elegant sofa belongs to the married couple, Steph and Dom, often referred to as the ‘posh couple’ on the original TV show Gogglebox.

It is a captivating British reality show involving a selected cross-section of the British public lounging on their sofas whilst entertainingly interacting and debating the programmes they are watching on TV.

You remember this lovable pair don’t you?

Well, you can't really forget them!

They are the ‘drunk in love’ couple with crazy banter and hilarious comments, and they are forever holding hands.

Gogglebox places the sofa right at the heart of the British family, and never lets us forget how pleasurable it is to stay indoors and watch TV whilst snuggled up on the sofa, especially with loved ones.

It seems that a sofa can do a lot for bonding, fun, and a bit of laughter.

All you need to do is just find the right sofa that has you returning every night, and gets you and your loved one in the lovey-dovey mood.

 

Get the Sofa You Deserve

Well, now you know how desirable a sofa is and to your favourite TV stars, a sofa that doesn’t provide pleasure and memorable moments shouldn’t be in your home.

Sofas are essential to our well-being, and is the perfect excuse to choose one that makes a positive difference in your life every single day!
