One of the most interesting sets on television today is Sheldon and Leonard's apartment. Every time I watch an episode of TBBT, I invariably notice something I hadn't seen before. I've now found myself actually looking for details I might have missed. This 'Where's Waldo?' type game can be played when viewing all the characters' living spaces, but most particularly when watching hijinx unfold at Sheldon and Leonard's. SO...today I decided to share my obsession and compile elements in their living area just in case anyone out there would like to copy their geek-chic interior.
First, we'll start with the furniture. Pottery Barn seemed like the best place to 'shop' for look alikes, so I choose the Manhattan sofa in Hazelnut (Leonard bought theirs for a few hundred bucks from a neighbor who was moving out), $2899; PB Basic Slip-covered Armchair in Camel, $850; a round glass Caprice coffee table by Sitcom Furniture on which to eat lots and lots of take out, $293; a banker's chair, $175; a PB Expedition Cube side table, $699; a 5" x 8" Kilim rug, $870; and library chest for game storage, $300.
Of course, like many of us, our personalities come through in the doodads with which we share our space. This, of course, is the fun part of ogling Sheldon and Leonard's place. Here's just a fraction of what you'll find: Celestial Star Globe, $133; a Captain Future Poster, $70; a dart board, which hangs on the back of their front door, $70; a telescope $150; a dry-erase board, $27; a Forbidden Planet movie poster, $20; a Snake Peanut Brittle Can, $13; and Green Lantern action hero, $25. These last two are a means to store your valuables. Although, you'll have to hollow out a nether ye in the Green Lantern to stash your cash. I've heard there's enough room up there for a couple of fifties.
The Big Bang Theory airs Thursday nights at 7 central/8 eastern on CBS.
