Faux Bois: Love or Hate?


We're soon going to run a story on faux bois, and I admit: I wasn't into it. Until I saw this magazine stand on the Ballard Designs site. And now I really, really want to have it. But I really, really don't want to pay $129 for it. Because it isn't worth that. I mean, dang. It's faux. I can envision it in my new living room, though, and I'm praying for a sale. The 75% off kind.

I've never even heard of faux bois. What's the premise?

Do not like.

It's a bunch of materials that are mixed together to make stuff that looks like real wood. And I don't much like it, except for this one piece.

Maybe you should work on getting a fireplace first...

And P.S. it doesn't look like wood to me. I thought it was metal. I do not recommend spending $129 on it. Save your bucks and come out to Cali!!!

Hmmm...I kinda do like it. It is certainly popping up everywhere. I do love the magazine stand, but I'm with you, wait until it's 75% off! I have some faux bois candlesticks that I really like.

Oh. It's a magazine stand? I thought it was a thing you put firewood in. Ha!
