An Interior Design Site Reimagined Friends Characters' Homes Today, and We Love Emma's Dorm Room!
In anticipation of the Friends reunion special coming to HBO (date TBD), interior design startup Modsy has given us something to ponder: what do our favorite characters' homes look like today? Are Monica and Chandler happy in upstate New York? Is Phoebe still not buying furniture from chain retailers? What does Ross and Rachel's home like? Where is Emma? Does Joey have a bachelor pad? There are so many questions, and until the reunion special airs, it's up to our imaginations to figure it out. Luckily, Modsy has helped us connect the dots by recreating our favorite friends' pads, and they even dreamt up Emma's dorm room (yes, she'd be in college by now) as a bonus. If you're interested in seeing the gang's abodes, have a look at the slides ahead!
Joey's Bachelor Pad
Our favorite smooth-talking "How you doin'?" character appears to still be living in Greenwich Village — in fact, he's right across the hall in Monica's old apartment! Of course, he's done it up with some new paint, and let's not ignore his gallery wall featuring him on the cover of Soap Opera Digest. It appears Joey's (finally) ditched his recliner, however, the director's chair still stands, and Hugsy has even made an appearance! We're fans of this contemporary bachelor pad, and if you are, too, check out the decor items ahead.

Monica and Chandler's Upstate Oasis
Monica and Chandler's upstate home represents Monica's neat, clean, and traditional style. The symmetrical home is set up for guests, with three couches for hosting friends and family. The color scheme, which complements her iconic vintage Jouets poster in the bookshelf, keeps the home lively. As you can tell from the cookbook on the coffee table and chef jacket in the background, Monica is still cooking up a storm. If you like this breezy style, get the look ahead.

Phoebe's Country Bedroom
Phoebe left NYC for the countryside, and her cozy cottage is an accurate representation of her personality. While nothing was purchased from Pottery Barn, Phoebe did opt for a few new items to go alongside her antique chair and dresser. As you can see from the guitar in the background, the "Smelly Cat" artist is still coming up with new jingles to play at her local coffee shop. We also can't help but wonder if she got a Volvo and is officially a soccer mom. If you like the look of Phoebe's country cottage, snag the items ahead.

Emma's Grown-Up College Dorm
Rachel and Ross's daughter, Emma, is all grown up! Her parents have shipped her off to college, and her dorm room is as fashionable as Rachel envisioned it. Complete with a clothing rack for her vintage clothing collection and a little dinosaur stuffed animal given to her by Ross, the room is a beautiful mix of both her parents. If you're interested in Emma's cute dorm style, create it for yourself with the products ahead.
