“iCarly” may take place in Seattle, but like tons of other shows, it was actually shot in Hollywood. Want to know something awesome? “iCarly” was shot in the same studio as other classic Nick shows like “All That,” “Kenan & Kel,” and “The Amanda Show”!
That kind of legacy calls for some expert craftsmanship on the part of the set designers—and the talent behind recent shows like “iCarly” is the team of Art Director Harry Matheu. Whether or not you notice it at first glance, there are some incredible details in the sets they’ve created for “iCarly” from 2010 to 2013.
Here’s a look at some of those details that we appreciate most.
A pillow in Carly’s bedroom says “Pump up the fruit”
Carly’s bedroom is a masterpiece. Those beaded curtains, neon signs, and semi-lofted bed beneath a nifty chandelier would be any teen’s dream room. We’re especially fans of the “Pump up the fruit” pillow, and the bird on a wire/shoes on a wire outline on the wall.
Spencer’s very cautious bedroom
Spencer’s room on “iCarly” is the awesome, if somewhat untidy, male counterpart to Carly’s purple paradise. The elevated bed layout is similar, and there’s a lot of quirky elements to love, like the use of school lockers and other random paraphernalia. The best may be the red plank with “CAUTION” written repeatedly on it and the “stand clear of doors at all times” sign above the entrance. What do you think?
All those shoes in the Daka conference room
In iPromotion, Carly is invited to promote a shoe called Techfoot from the company Daka. The crew accepts this gig only to find out that the shoes have some serious defects. It’s easy to overlook the sweet set while getting caught in the plot, but now you can take another look: fancy sneakers float atop every swivel chair, and that awesome centerpiece looks like a mini succulent-filled zen garden. Namaste.
The sad teddy bear in this abandoned house
In the episode iRescue, Sam’s fresh-out-of-Juvie friend Dana invites her and Carly to a “smash party” at an abandoned house. Carly brings cupcakes and gets in over her head as destruction ensues. For a set that’s meant to be destroyed, it’s a work of art, and the bear (which characters Spencer and T-Bo fight with) is a nice touch.
