'The Lumbersexual's Guide to Decorating' Is Everything You Never Knew You Wanted

According to Urban Dictionary, a "lumbersexual" is a metrosexual "who has the need to hold on to some outdoor-based ruggedness, thus opting to keep a finely trimmed beard." Such "outdoor-based ruggedness" doesn't just extend to a lumbersexual's general appearance -- it can also apply to his home.

If you're unsure of just what that may look like, don't worry. ForRent.com created an infographic called "The Lumbersexual's Guide To Decorating" that will explain everything. For example, if your friend lives in the hipster mecca of Williamsburg and has a faux bear skin rug, chances are they're totally lumbersexual.
