Product Description

The furniture and objets d’art of “Frasier,” as selected by the series’ writers and production designers, demonstrate a curatorial process based on the comedic merit of each piece—its suitability for humor in reference. The art world, perceived by most as recondite, thriving on exclusion, and reserved only for the elite has been turned on its head and repurposed, through comedy, for the audience’s inclusion. By making us laugh, the show brings art and design to a mass audience, redelivering one of civilization’s most cumbersome topics as something joyous, appealing, and fascinatingly accessible.
