Here’s how to recreate TV’s most iconic living-rooms on a budget and only using Ikea furniture

Ikea has released TV-inspired furniture sets that let shoppers recreate living rooms from their favourite shows. 

The promotional images, created by the brand’s UAE branch, show how items from the retailer’s regular range can be pulled together to create the homes seen in The Simpsons, Friends and Stranger Things.

Attention has been paid to every detail – with customers able to snap up everything from Homer’s brown sofa to Monica and Chandler’s lamps.  

The items are all available from the Ikea catalogue – and prices won’t break the bank either.

Buying all the items would range from 2,660 Dhs (£575, $725) for The Simpsons set up to 5,620 Dhs (£1,215, $1,530) for the Stranger Things pad – which comes with 17 different items. 

The much-loved purple living room from Monica and Chandler’s Friends apartment is brought to life with 18 different pieces, including sofas, curtains and lights. 

The entire set – which also includes a coffee table and wall art – would set you back 3,240 Dhs (£805, $1,015).

The Simpsons’ edit is strikingly similar, right down to the tilted picture frame above the couch.

Ikea got the Simpsons' set perfectly and even remember to tilt the frame above the couch to make it even more similar. It costs 2,660 Dhs (£575, $725) for all of the items

The Simpsons pick also includes the purple corner table with the lamp and green phone and a round rug to lay in the middle of your room, Marge and Homer style.

Fans of Netflix original will also find their pick with a ‘room for everyone’ that bears a striking resemblance to the one seen in Stranger Things. 

Everything is there, from the fairy lights on the wall to the alphabet letters – and even the carved pumpkins.
