Jennifer Aniston, Kanye West and Ellen DeGeneres all have something in common: a penchant for a type of vintage French sofa that can fetch hundreds of thousands of dollars at auction.

In photos from a recent Architectural Digest tour of Aniston’s Bel Air home, the Friends star’s vintage Jean Royère Polar Bear sofa sits atop a light carpet in her living room. The couch’s mid-century style is charming, but you might not want to look if you’re on a budget. Jean Royère sofas similar to the one in the actress’s home have sold for up to $754,000 in recent years.

If the name of the couch, also known as the “Boule” or “Ours Polaire” sofa, sounds familiar, it might be because it’s a fixture in other celebrity homes. Ellen DeGeneres is a known Jean Royère fan and Kanye West once said the plush sofa “is my favorite piece of furniture.”

Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt Are Both Single and Fans Are Freaking Out!

  Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt Are Both Single and Fans Are Freaking Out! Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt Are Both Single and Fans Are Freaking Out!Just hours after announcing her split from Justin Theroux on Thursday, fans quickly took to Twitter to comment on the fact that both Aniston and her ex-husband, Brad Pitt, are now single.

“If I wasn’t an actress, I’d want to be a designer. I love the process,” says serial home renovator, and superstar actress Jennifer Aniston. “There’s something about picking out fabrics and finishes that feeds my soul.” Aniston’s commitment to the craft was certainly put to the test in her latest residential project, the reimagining of a Bel Air house that was designed by architect A. Quincy Jones and completed in 1965. Aniston enlisted the aid of #AD100 interior designer @stephenshadley to help preserve the modernist ethos of the original scheme while softening some of its sharp lines and outfitting the interior with tactile, organic finishes and furnishings. “Sexy is important, but comfort is essential,” she avers, pointing as evidence to the vintage Jean Royère Polar Bear sofa, Jacques Adnet armchairs, and Mies van der Rohe daybed arranged in the living room, pictured here.

What Happens to Jennifer Aniston's Enormous Engagement Ring?

  What Happens to Jennifer Aniston's Enormous Engagement Ring? In the wake of the news of Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux’s separation after two and a half years of marriage, the former couple now face the unpleasant task of having to divide their assets and shared property. But what about Aniston’s huge diamond engagement ring? “The engagement ring pre-dates the marriage, and therefore is Jennifer’s separate property regardless of whether it is mentioned in the prenuptial agreement,” says L.A.-based attorney and certified family law specialist David Glass, who’s not involved with Aniston and Theroux’s split. “As long as the parties get married, then the recipient keeps the engagement ring.” Aniston previously told the New York Times that the huge diamond sparkler, estimated at around eight carats, took some getting used to. “It’s a rock, I know,” she admitted. “He rocked it up. It took me a while to get used to it. I’m not a diamond girl,” she added. I’m more Indian jewelry and stuff.” The couple became engaged on Aug. 10, 2012 after more than a year of dating. Theroux popped the question on his birthday and Aniston was photographed wearing the rock in question nearly two months later when Theroux visited her on the Santa Fe set of We’re the Millers. The couple announced their separation last Thursday. As for the rest of their assets, the couple are believed to have kept their properties (including Aniston’s $21 million L.A. estate and Theroux’s New York City apartment) in their own names.

Created by the French designer in 1947, the sofa experienced a resurgence in popularity starting in the early 2000s, according to Architectural Digest. With only about 150 ever made, the pieces can attract six-figure bids at auction. In 2016, two off-white Polar Bear sofas sold at Phillips auction, one for $754,000 and another for $358,000.

If those numbers are a little difficult to grasp, consider the fact that both couches cost their buyers more than the average U.S. home or four years of tuition, room and board at Harvard. A $358,000 check could buy three Tesla Roadsters, while $754,000 could pay off the average student loan debt for 44 graduates.
