Central Perk Neon Light

Reviewed by

You may not be able to visit the actual Central Perk and hang out with the friends from friends, but that can’t stop you trying to recreate it in your own home. Step one: Get the paint and plaster off the walls so you have a nice New York City exposed brick vibe going on. While the place is a mess, gut your kitchen and replace it with a new caf one, complete with a big shiny copper coffee machine and working cash register. This step will probably set you back a bit so you might need to remortgage your flat or go into lots of debt if you’re not fortunate enough to own a penthouse at the age of 25. Step two: Acquire a brown velvet chesterfield sofa with matching armchairs. Make sure you’ve got a nice ornate Turkish rug to sit them on. And maybe an antique oak coffee table if you can get your hands on one. Step three: Wait for a group of cool twenty-somethings with seemingly endless time on their hands to sit around quaffing coffee in the middle of the day to take a shine to your new set up. Eventually one of their old school friends will jilt her husband and be in desperate need for employment. Hire her as a waitress. Or you could just put up this sign and stick the kettle on.
