“Seinfeld” premiered 29 years ago this week, and even though new episodes of the series aren’t on the air anymore, we like to think the characters are still hanging out in Jerry’s apartment every day.
In honor of the show’s anniversary, the team at Modsy, a virtual room design startup, teamed up with TODAY to dream up with a modern version of the apartment and see what it might look like in 2018 — and it’s bringing us major nostalgia. (See their re-imagined “Friends” and “Sex and the City” apartments, too!)
“As a neat freak and ardent germaphobe, we knew 2018 Jerry would still want a clean, crisp and comfortable space to call home,” said Alessandra Wood, Modsy’s director of style. “We couldn’t see today’s Jerry embracing huge design changes in his space, so our 2018 take will feel familiar to how the apartment looked in the show, but with a modern update.”
The old couch has been replaced with a no-frills neutral sofa from CB2, accompanied by a mid century-style upholstered arm chair. The wooden coffee table has been replaced with a sleek glass top from Crate & Barrel.
“His furniture sports straight lines and right angles, and keeps to a palette of greys, blues and greens,” Wood said.
The design also features some surprises and mementos from some of the most beloved episodes.
“In addition to the classic car artwork and sneakers by the door, we also snuck in his famous fur coat, fusilli Jerry pasta statue and tacked a few Superman goodies on the fridge,” Wood said. “We also paid homage to Jerry’s bright green bike, VHS tape collection and frequent newspaper/magazines on his table.”
