So far on the Sex and the City revival And Just Like That…, our beloved main characters have gone through some major changes. What hasn’t changed is that each of these women have their own distinct style—and although their designer clothes and shoes typically get all the attention, their furniture is actually just as interesting and authentic. And Just Like That… was filmed on 25 different sets. New York City locations like the Manhattan School of Music auditorium, Sant Ambroeus restaurant, and The East Pole Kitchen and Bar (housed in an Upper East Side brownstone) all set the scene, and the majority of the apartments were created on impeccably furnished sound stages. The one exception was the loft of Charlotte’s new friend Lisa Todd Wexley (played by Nicole Ari Parker), which was filmed at a real apartment and even featured a real Gordon Parks photograph borrowed from his foundation (her other pieces are reproductions).
Production designer Miguel López-Castillo and set decorator Carol Silverman thought about each character’s personal tastes when creating their homes, and imagined how their spaces might have changed in the ten years since we last saw them in the Sex and the City 2 movie. Below, we dive deeper into the best moments from each of the main sets and tell you how to get the look of your favorite character in your own home.
Miranda’s Brooklyn brownstone
“[Showrunner] Michael Patrick King told us that Miranda isn’t interested in interior decoration, her place is comfortable and functional for her family’s life,” Silverman says. Despite the somewhat basic furniture pieces, it is worth remembering that when Miranda and Steve first toured their brownstone in the original series, it didn’t even have working electric. Now, it has an updated kitchen but still retains all of its historic charm thanks to details like the exposed brick wall and stone fireplace. “Miranda is pragmatic and savvy. Her brownstone was a very good investment, and it contains all the creature comforts like a family-friendly sectional sofa and reading area and an open plan kitchen with old-and-new detailing,” López-Castillo says.
