Feeling Faux Bois for Fall

Feeling Faux Bois for Fall

With fall upon us I am beginning to switch gears with the change of season. My thoughts are no longer occupied by linen shorts and flip flops. Instead I am thinking plaid flannel, blue jeans, and boots. I've also been thinking a lot about faux bois lately — it must be some sort of lumberjack effect from all that plaid flannel.

Clockwise from upper left:

Gus Modern Timber Table — I love this whimsical little side table and the way the white wood grain plays against the clear acrylic. It's faux bois at its most modern.

Vintage Lounge Chair — A 1950s lounge chair has been refinished with a black lacquer base and reupholstered in white faux bois print fabric.

Rosewood Throw Pillow — This throw pillow uses a hand-cut reverse felt appliqué to create a faux bois pattern. Wood grain never looked so soft!

FLOR — Martha Stewart teamed up with FLOR to bring us these faux bois carpet tiles. Available in four colors, the tiles would look equally refreshing as a throw rug or, using just a tile a two, as a doormat.
