A Touch of Faux Bois

Faux Bois (French for false wood) is the artistic imitation of wood. Many artists and designers use this art form to create furniture, lighting, and textiles.

The grains and textures of trees are unique and beautiful.
It’s no wonder that so many people find inspiration for their homes from nature. 

Here are a few examples of faux bois pieces.  Incorporating a small amount of faux bois into a room can add a unique flair and an interesting conversation piece.

You’ll be able to find an array of furniture, textiles, and many interesting details with the faux bois look with a simple search online. Maybe you’ll find the perfect piece that speaks to you!

When decorating with this look, be careful not to add too many pieces. You do not want to cross the line from interesting and pulled together into a kitschy, theme decorated room!
