Fans of the Coen Brothers’ movie The Big Lebowski will be well aware of how important a rug can be in a given space. For Jeff Lebowski, of ‘The Dude’, the traditional rug in his living room is the single design flourish that, as he repeatedly explains to other characters in the story, “really ties the room together”.

This is the sort of relationship with rugs that many homeowners have, although that relationship is rarely given the same dramatic and comedic treatment as The Dude’s relationship with his rug! In the end everything comes together when Lebowski gets hold of one of the traditional rugs in the mansion of his namesake while a number side stories take place.

For us, the most important thing is that The Dude gets the perfect replacement rug! If the rug in your living room is damaged, shows significant signs of wear or just doesn’t work for you anymore then it’s likely it no longer ties the room together so well. In this event, it’s time to start shopping around for a new rug and there are plenty of styles and designs available to choose from online.
