We finally know why the Central Perk sofa is still available in Friends!
Central Perk’s couch mystery is one of those things no one could ever figure out on the show Friends. Indeed, how is it possible that in a city like New York, the best coffee spot in Central Park is still free? Even in our wildest dreams, it seems totally impossible to us. Yet this is the case with the Central Perk couch that the characters in the series share with the utmost recklessness for several years. A curious detail that fans of the sitcom ended up putting on the long list of improbable details found in the series, as well as the incredible amount of free time that roommates have.

Still, an amazing theory could explain why the Central Perk sofa is still available. Indeed, as pointed out Screenrant in a recent article, it is the love that Gunther has (James Michael Tyler) to Rachel who allows her friends to enjoy this incomparable comfort in the New York jungle. And for good reason, the manager of the cafe made sure to reserve the table every day in the hope of meeting his beautiful, after she left her job as a waitress in season 3. A theory reinforced by the fact that we can see a small “reserved” sign placed on the table facing the sofa in several episodes. Which would then explain how the six friends always find themselves sitting there, whether the cafe is crowded or not. What do you think ?
