Yes. This couch may have cost $754,000. Really. And Jennifer Aniston lets people sit in it. I, for one, would DEMAND to drink red wine and eat pizza on this just to teach her a lesson about EXCESS. (I hope she SCOTCH-GUARDED that sucker!)
It's a rare Jean Royère Polar Bear sofa. Only about 150 of these were made in 1947. There's no word how much Jennifer paid for hers, but two of them were sold at auction in 2016. One went for $358,000, and the other sold for $754,000. Ellen DeGeneres and Kayne West own one each, as well.
I'm a fan of Jennifer Aniston. I was #teamjen back when that unfortunate Brad Pitt/Angelina Jolie homewrecking scandal hit.
Still. This house is NOT MY FAVORITE, though I like the bar. It's too The Brady Bunch meets Mad Men meets One Day at Time. Also, what is UP with the orange muppet in her bedroom. WEIRD.
"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.

Although Jennifer Aniston's career remains as big as ever (next up she plays a former beauty-pageant queen in the indie comedy Dumplin'), the life and home she has built keep her priorities in order. "There was a time when I thought there was something romantic about picking up and trotting off somewhere different every three months. Now I'm becoming more particular about the projects I take," she says. "I look around at my husband and my dogs and our home, and there's nowhere else I want to be." Sundays at the Aniston-Theroux home are reserved for cooking and frolicking by the pool with friends, children, and dogs. "We put out a mean taco bar, and the chili's pretty good in the colder months," the actress says.

Here's the full story:
There's a seriously imposing desk in Jennifer Aniston 's home office that looks as if it might have been plucked from the executive suite of some international conglomerate. It positively radiates authority. "I feel extremely powerful when I sit at that desk-so powerful, in fact, that I'm almost never there," the effervescent actress jokes.
