living in: the big lebowski

by amym

That The Big Lebowski is a cult classic worthy of recognition is undeniable. It’s not just because we’re Coen brothers fans or that we weirdly love The Dude’s sweater. There is an unmistakable whiff of modern California cool behind The Dude’s slacker exterior (and we also appreciate his dedication to rug cleanliness).

1. Vintage Oushak Rug, $1,195; 2. White Russian Cocktail; 3. Vintage Cowichan Sweater, $25; 4. Cassette Box, $16; 5. Cigar Sampler, $28; 6. Manchester Media Stand, $89; 7. Vintage Bowling Pin, $30; 8. ’70s Clock, $18; 9. Michael Kors Watch, $308

It’s near impossible to watch The Big Lebowski without developing a hankering to sidle up to the bar for a drink. White Russian, anyone? Nah, didn’t think so. Whatever your poison and whatever life throws at you, it’s a small comfort to know that through it all, The Dude abides.
