The Dude Abides: The Big Lebowskis Pad





Edwina / Published on August 20, 2013

If you’re a fan of flicks the Coen Brothers have produced, you are likely familiar with the 1998 cult classic The Big Lebowski. The film stars Jeff Bridges who is seeking out his ruined rug, calling on the help of his bowling buddies to reunite with it, White Russians in tow.
The Sheats-Goldstein Resident plays a prominent part in the film; the sleek house set in Malibu is actually located in Benedict Canyon (both Los Angeles).
The residence was designed by architect John Lautner, whose unique properties are frequently used for film settings. It was intended that the house mimic a cave, and it did this by being built into the sandstone hillside.
The home features 750 skylights in total, and features cross ventilation for cooling, given the lack of air conditioning. It’s very much open plan and paired with the glass walls makes this space expansive and perfect for holding parties.
The living room has minimal clutter, its décor mainly being its plants and books. You can replicate this by checking out our sleek book stands such as this chrome wire construction to add character to your living room.
Almost every room of the Sheats-Goldstein residence overlooks leafy greens. Adding plants will give natural colour to a room and provide a focal point. It purifies the air too which is perfect if you’re living in a city centre residence! Don’t hesitate to visit our Garden Centre for accessories to help you create your own garden wonderland.
