Iconic TVs: Some of us consider the ‘Frasier’ apartment the real star of the show
This is an ongoing series.
What’s your dream TV lounge? As classic shows air through retro channels and streaming services, we see the sets that made us feel at home while watching our favorite shows. We dive deep into what made these sets so special. If you have one you’d like us to review or have memories to share, email [email protected].
Quick Hand Raise: Did the decor in Dr. Frasier Crane’s apartment influence anyone else? It was hard not to be fixed by its atmosphere. The place had clean lines, a minimalist vibe, the soothing beige tones of the 1990s. Its valuable pieces included a Le Corbusier lamp, a Chihuly vase, an antique telescope, and various African artifacts. In 2018, Braked determined that the roughly 2,000 square foot apartment cost about $3 million. How could Frasier afford such a place?
Through 246 episodes, the layout of Frasier’s apartment has imprinted itself on our minds. The premise of the show was the adventures of a smug radio psychiatrist and his equally smug brother up against their down-to-earth father, Martin, and resident physical therapist, Daphne. But for many of us, we tuned in to get into the apartment. Fans online continue to celebrate the apartment with their idea of its floor plan or create Zoom backgrounds.
The front room was spacious and contained Frasier’s brand of eclectic furniture, including his Eames and Wassily chairs, which made his father’s worn plaid recliner stand out even more.
The balcony revealed stunning views of the Seattle skyline. Frasier’s room was immaculate and its black porcelain bathroom would put Buc-ee’s to shame.
Frasier’s apartment at 1901 Elliott Bay Towers was supposed to be on the corner of the building. According to one fan’s vision, the layout was V-shaped with the living room at the bottom of the V. Take the hallway on the left side of the V and you’d head into Frasier’s master bedroom, which led to his large bathroom. bath. . Martin’s bedroom was also in the wing. The right side of the wing was smaller. It begins with an elevating lounge featuring a grand piano and bar. Further back is a small hallway before you get to Daphne’s living space. Returning to the front room, the kitchen is on the right.
More sets are in the fraser-verse. The KACL radio studio where Frasier makes his show opens many episodes. In second place is probably Café Nervosa, where Frasier and his gang sympathize. Perhaps as impressive as Frasier’s apartment was Niles’ apartment in montanawhich is even more pretentious than Frasier’s.
As for fun facts, Frasier’s apartment was housed on the same sound stages of Cheers, which spawned the Frasier show. It was also used as an apartment in the television adaptation of The odd couple with Matthew Perry and Thomas Lennon. We are also keeping an eye out for a fraser to restart, which is in development at Paramount+. You can learn a lot more about the fraser wiki fandom website.
If we want more, the internet is full of fraser floor plans (people sell copies), Lego sets, miniature replicas and much more. We’re not the only ones who think Frasier’s apartment rules.
