After a long day at work, you just want to put your feet up and recline in a comfy chair. Guess what? So do your favorite TV characters! You welcomed them into your living room for years, and all the while you watched their stories play out on memorable TV sets, and man did they have some cool decor. The most iconic pieces of furniture in television history include easy chairs, family couches, bachelor pad must haves, cool statues, and so much more. You know you wanted Spock's captain's chair and some Cheers barstools of your very own!

While you probably can't own Chairy from Pee-wee's Playhouse, or the actual Iron Throne (it's not that comfortable anyway, and is probably still covered in Joffrey cooties), you can vote for the chairs, desks, dog sculptures, and Barcaloungers that you think are the best furniture items to have ever appeared on television. Whether you like the cool, spinning judges' chairs on The Voice, or the Bluth family's living room chair (which was decidedly NOT a spinner), it is essential that the Ranker community figures out which piece of classic TV furniture is the best.
 
Is the Golden Girls couch better than Roseanne's? What about the couch from Family Matters? While all great sitcoms had a family sofa, shows like Seinfeld and How I Met Your Mother had distinct restaurant booths where hilarious jokes were told, characters grew, and television memories were made. Who can forget when Jim popped Dwight's exercise ball chair on The Office? And what Battlestar Galactica fans didn't, for two seconds, consider how hard it would be to do a quick bathroom reno and build themselves a Cylon bathtub?

You might be wondering: Is Joey's dog statue really furniture? If you believe! Does Batman's Shakespeare bust qualify? Just barely! But it's a pretty neat thing, so here it is on this list! Now let's figure this out together. What are the most iconic, memorable, distinct, and dare we say important pieces of furniture that belonged to your favorite TV families and characters?

These objects defined the sets of the best TV shows ever, so vote below add any famous chairs, davenports (it's a sofa, okay), thrones, beds, and tables that you remember from your favorite TV series.
