Friends Homewares scoops Licensing Award

Reflecting the enduring popularity of classic comedy, Friends (and its renaissance for new younger viewers), the Friends Homewares from Pyramid International was crowned the Best Licensed Home Décor, Tableware or Housewares Range (sponsored by Spring Fair & Autumn Fair).

The accolade was one of the The Licensing Awards 2019, which took place at London’s Grosvenor House last week.

The Friends Homewares range includes hydration bottles, mugs, travel mugs, coasters and a doormat featuring catch quotations from the show as well as the Central Perk motif.
