Hand-drawn floor plans and richly imagined architectural illustrations tell the story of television’s most memorable on-screen sets and scenes.

Come explore where Lucy and Ethel baked a monstrous loaf of bread, where Phoebe performed “Smelly Cat,” where Jim and Pam fell in love, and countless other homes, offices, and towns as familiar to you as your own living room. Illustrator Iñaki Aliste Lizarralde has expertly rendered thirty-five of the most memorable television floor plans in modern history—puzzling together the layouts with an architect’s eye for detail and a director’s sense of storytelling.

TV fans will delight in the interiors and exteriors from shows like FriendsSeinfeld, and The Simpsons, where characters and plotlines converge to create worlds so mesmerizing you want to binge-watch season after season.
