Design Find: I Found the Budget Option for Fancy Faux Bois at Target
Think ritzy faux bois is too fancy for your price point? Think again! We've rounded up some of the most affordable faux for you.
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.
