Pottery Barn will sell ‘Friends’ furniture — including that apothecary table

There’s only one way to make your binge viewing of “Friends” more enjoyable: Doing it in a roomful of “Friends” furniture.

And now that dream can come true.

Thanks to Pottery Barn, the store that Phoebe Buffay hates with a passion, you can decorate your home in all things related to the NBC hit sitcom (which is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year).

“Could we BE any more excited?” reads the promo slug on the Pottery Barn page announcing the company’s new “Friends” collection.

The connection between the store and the Warner Bros. sitcom began in a Season 6 episode, “The One With the Apothecary Table,” in which Rachel (Jennifer Aniston) buys said table from Pottery Barn and convinces roommate Pheobe that it came from a flea market.

Of course, Pottery Barn’s collection will include the dark wood storage bench with brass-knobbed drawers — along with other items like an embroidered “Welcome Friends” pillow ($49.50) and Central Perk mugs ($14.50).

It’s a good guess that many of the items will be ones seen in the scene from the episode where Rachel and Phoebe stop outside of a Pottery Barn store, eyeing up a display of items that end up in their apartment. Including the coveted lamp.

“We are thrilled to partner with Warner Bros. to bring an inspired collection to life for FRIENDS fans,” a Pottery Barn spokesperson told Vox.

The collection launches July 30.
