1.28 What happened to the set? (Late Night with Conan O'Brien)

The set has changed little for the first three years of the show.
The original set for the show has no windows and a prominent crescent
moon on the top. The moon was removed and windows were put in early in
the run, leaving everything else in tact. The monologue area had a blue
floor and curtain, with the band along the far wall. The interview area
was done like a den in light reds and browns. There was a large, simple
desk, a couch-chair combo next to it, and a medium-sized coffee table.
The windows were normal-sized with blue sashes.

Small changes happened in early 1996. The curtains remained open
during the monologue, showing the unlighted backstage and
band-performance area. The Max Weinberg Seven area was also redone. Max
was given a red drum riser and the band got a new, bi-level bandstand.

During the two-week hiatus for the 1996 Olympics, the set was
completely redesigned. The band and monologue areas were left alone, but
the interview area was redone totally. The set now resembles a ritzy
apartment as opposed to a den. The set is now in much darker colors.
The walls are covered in cushioned panels. All the furniture is now more
stylized and smaller (with an almost non-existant coffee table). The
back wall was turned into a balcony. Behind the balcony is a somewhat
abstracted New York city-scape. The set is not in its final form yet,
and has been constantly tweaked and changed since it has been put into
service.
