Which Friend Are You?
Do you guys remember the apothecary table episode on Friends? The one where Phoebs (Phoebe) hates Pottery Barn? It's awesome, especially if you are into interior design. If you have the Friends dvd collection it's season 6 episode 11.
Or, you can buy the episode on Amazon for 1.99. No, this is not a sponsored post, but I really love this episode.
Anyways, Rachel loves Pottery Barn and buys an apothecary table. Everyone freaks out because Phoebe hates Pottery Barn, or anything that is mass produced for that matter. So, just so Rachel can keep her beloved apothecary table she tells Phoebe it's one of a kind and found at a flea market.
Check out these clips:
You have to check out the above clip. Ross gets completely offended that Phoebe hates Pottery Barn.
So, which Friend are you?
I'm definitely with Ross and Rachel. I do have such a weakness for Pottery Barn, but I do tend to hate having something that everyone else does as well, which is why I can sympathize with Phoebs. Most people I know don't shop at the "big box stores" that I would or do anyways, so lucky me, right? I don't feel the need to be different and I can continue drooling every time I get a Pottery Barn catalog. And I do drool.
If you are a Phoebe, you can love Pottery Barn, too. Not everything they offer is mass produced:
|Antique Dough Bowl|
|Woven Wine Bottle are handwoven and limited in quantity|
|These vintage found skis from Germany date as far back as 1910, and were mainly used in the Austrian Alps, where skiing has always been a magical experience. Each pair retains its own timeworn markings and details such as pointed wood tips with metal and leather bindings.|
|The Olive Bucket. Once used to gather olives in the countries along the Mediterranean Sea.|
If you are a Rachel living with a Phoebe, here is something that meets in the middle:
|Hendrix Desk. At a country flea market, we spotted a carpenter’s work bench with a vise attached to one leg. We designed this desk to replicate its bold design and sturdy craftsmanship.|
Ok, well there ya go, it was inspired from a one of a kind desk from a flea market. Close enough. I think Rachel would think so.
Btw, I'm drooling over the antique dough bowls they offer, they are so gorge!
Happy Labor Day, guys!
