Transform Your Apartment A La How I Met Your Mother With These Must-Haves
You can channel Ted, Marshall, and Lily with your roommates when you have these finds
How I Met Your Mother is one of the biggest sitcoms of all time for a reason—their story is proof that anyone can survive the modern world in the company of friends. Some have even called the journey of Ted, Marshall, Lily, Barney and Robin through their twenties iconic.
Before writing it off as a F.R.I.E.N.D.S spin-off, a second look might help you realize that the show is not without its own charm. Apart from Ted’s endless search for The One, fans have grown to love—the gang's favorite hangout—his shared apartment with Marshall and Lily. Get the look and feel of their shared space with these finds:
