Imagine a set designer decorated your apartment: They’d tell you exactly where the meaningful conversation corner should be, which bar cart is the most likely to further your character arc, what lighting is the most flattering. While it’s not realistic, the next best thing is to buy the exact furniture and accessories from your favorite TV and movies and figure out the placement on your own. And you can.

When designers aren’t customizing something to perfectly fit the working set and storyline, they find some pretty great items that luckily we can all get our paws on. The website Film & Furniture sources items from the big and small screens that you can actually buy yourself.

It’s true, some of the recognizably classic designer pieces (ahem, Eames Lounge Chair and Ottoman) come with a big price tag. But there are affordable options that won’t make your house look like a movie museum, and will add major style points and are a great conversation piece. “Oh these candlesticks? Joan Holloway from Mad Men inspired me.”

Take a look at these filmworthy finds and keep your eyes open—you never know when you might spot the next famous coffee table on screen.

Add some color and whimsy to your home with this vintage looking octopus print. It works especially well in Anastasia’s industrial loft style office in Fifty Shades Darker and Fifty Shades Freed.

These were featured in House of Cards and Better Call Saul (and basically any show/movie featuring the classic cocktail).
