Faux Bois Home Decor Ideas


The image above is by designer Benjamin Dhong, (details on this stunning entwined dolphins mirror, below) and it’s been in my “all time favorite” vignettes files for years!

The cloud wallpaper (Fornasetti’s Nuvole Storm) inspired my entire laundry room One Room Challenge in my own home. But, I digress. …

It’s the chic demi-lune table in this photo I’m obsessing over today!

More specifically, it’s the faux bois style of this little table.

There are so many different types of faux bois home decor items. I thought it might be fun to talk about a few of them.

Let’s start with the basics here, in case you’re not familiar.

Faux bois: (from the French for false wood) refers to the artistic imitation of wood or wood grains in various forms.

The craft has roots in the Renaissance with trompe-l’œil. Pronounced “Foe Bwah!”

Personally, I love how faux bois pieces look in the home.

Especially love this style for little tables, throw pillows (with wood grain motif patterned fabrics) and benches.

Faux bois home decor pieces add a chic little rustic touch to any space.

I also think they add a bit of warmth and creativity. Plus, it’s just fun to say!
