Cool Tool: Shop The Nanny Diaries Set

How's this for shameless product placement: Now you can do more than simply ogle the set decor in a film or TV show (which, admittedly, is sometimes the only thing that makes sitting through a bad one endurable) -- you can actually buy the conveniently cataloged products featured therein.

Say you're at a screening of The Nanny Diaries, and find yourself admiring the goods in Mr. and Mrs. X's posh Upper East Side pad.

Covet the ultra-glam mirrored coffee table ($1,370) in the master bedroom? Feel a pang for the buttoned-up wing chairs ($1,230 to $1,470 apiece) in the living room? Take a liking to the throw pillows ($130 each) on the couch? Long to soak in a glorious pedestal tub ($4,300) like Mrs. X does?

You're in luck. Thanks to SeenON! you can tour the movie's sets, get info on the furnishings and accessories used to create the moneyed abode where much of the action takes place, and click through to various retailers to purchase what you see. Hell, you can even buy the clothes right off of Scarlett Johansson and Laura Linney's backs.

The Nanny Diaries' aren't the only sets you can shop, either. SeenON! also features decor from Desperate Housewives, Ugly Betty, Grey's Anatomy, Top Chef, Will & Grace, and lots of others.

It leaves a bit of a bad taste in my mouth, at least from a "how much more cynical can Hollywood get?" point of view -- but I have to admit that it's a pretty handy service.

Ogle to your heart's content right here.

(Now, if only someone would sell the set decor used in Jennifer Aniston and Vince Vaughn's gorgeous apartment in The Break-Up ... )

That is pretty cool - I am always coveting things in movies, especially Wes Anderson ones (the extras about the sets on the Tennenbaum's DVD is really great).

I just hope the product info comes AFTER the sets are made and are not placed just for commercial purposes.

Your site looks awesome by the way!

Wow--I can't decide if this is brilliant or shameless. I am checking it out either way. Thanks for the info!
