Buy The Furniture You Saw In The Movies

Buy The Furniture You Saw In The Movies

I want the wallpaper from Phantom Thread. And I can have it, or at least a “reworking” of it, at Wallpaper Direct. I know that thanks to Film and Furniture, a blog and database that spots furniture and decor in movies and TV shows, and tells you where you can buy it.

The site has featured designs from Mad Men, A Clockwork Orange and even Incredibles 2. (You’ll have to go elsewhere for that rug from The Big Lebowski.)

Film and Furniture also examines architecture and shooting locations that you can visit, such as the Irish castles used in Game of Thrones.

Colour is a big deal on the site. The article “Minion Yellow”, which I clicked ironically, is actually an exploration of striking yellow setpieces in films such as American Hustle and Amelie.

Another feature explores pastels in film, and of course where you can buy some fancy pastel lighting fixtures and linens.

Sources are often listed from the UK, so Australian readers might need to look further for Australian stores. But Film and Furniture does the heavy lifting of identifying who in the world made that giant swoopy armchair.

And since everything on the site was already chosen by a discerning set designer, it’s a distilled, high-octane collection, every piece a treasure. You might end up telling yourself things like “Is eight hundred dollars that much for an end table, if we’ll keep it forever? I mean, it was in The Royal Tenenbaums!”
