Faux Bois is a French term originally referring to furniture made to imitate wood branches, logs or bark textures.  I like to apply this term to all sorts of modern day objects d’art, jewelry and interior design items seen in today’s marketplace.

Recently, a dear friend of mine gave me a wonderful tree necklace. 


Available on http://www.amazon.com/Gold-Toned-Metal-Tree-Necklace/dp/B000RN7D7S

Which naturally led me to notice all the faux (and real) bois in my daily travels.  Take a look at some of these fantastic creations.

MICHAEL ARAM’S Copper Bark Vase looks like a Birch tree Trunk.http://www.michaelaram.com



ECO-TREE colored pencils made of real bark!  Available online at www.organicfundough.com/item_10/Eco-Tree-Colored-Pencil



MARTHA STEWART’s FAUX BOIS AREA rug for  HOME DECORATOR’S COLLECTION http://www.homedecoratorscollection.com is a swell way to introduce faux bois to your abode.

And even a pendant lamp in a dark faux bois from LAMPS PLUS http://www.lampsplus.com/…/lights-up-faux-bois-dark-lamp-shade-12x14x10- spider__g7189.html is amazing!  A light color version is also available.

And I must include a 1960’s faux bois dress-groovy.  Available at ETSY. www.etsy.com/listing/…/the-woodyallenfauxboisdress
