November 9, 2012 § Leave a comment
Faux Bois : Pronounced “foe bwah” is a French term meaning “false wood”. This is a design element and craft that has been used since the Renaissance with the Trompe l’oeil style in France. It is the artistic imitation of wood or wood grains in various media. It has been madly popular throughout the history of interior design and decor.
Today, you see it used in a nice variety of materials, from wallpaper to fabrics, the art of Faux Bois is transcending just furniture application. I adore the look. It’s au natural and oh so classic! Mix this design element into your decor to really give it that procured look.
