In design circles, faux bois (from the French for "false wood") objects — that mimic the look of real wood — are perpetually in style. Like ceramic garden stools and Queen of Spain wallpaper, faux bois exemplifies a special kind of preppy, timeless, high-end look.

But faux bois items are also exorbitantly expensive, as in the line of whimsy-luxe outdoor furniture from Currey & Company that makes my covetous heart skip a beat.

I am perpetually on the hunt for affordable faux bois to feed my obsession with all things woodland and charming. So when I came across this accent table from Target's amazing in-house midcentury mod Project 62 line, I knew I had to make it mine. Lightweight, portable, realistic and able to work indoors or out, this Project 62 piece would provide a dose of fun to both cottage and modern/contemporary design schemes. Read on for more not-too-pricey faux bois picks.

This versatile and well-made stool adds fun and style to any room of the home, whether for vanity, entryway or as an extra seating.
