Faux Bois Patterns

Saturday, September 13, 2008

Woodgrain-patterned home accessories have been making the rounds for a few seasons now, but the cabin-chic style isn’t going away any time soon. Retail giant Pottery Barn signaled the pattern’s seemingly perpetual popularity with a handful of faux bois good for fall, including a doormat that looks exactly like on Martha Stewart used to sell in her now-defunct Catalogue for Living. (Imitation is the highest form of flattery, right?) Here are eight woodgrain picks that’ll give your pad a punch of rustic charm without making it look like an Elks Club circa 1972.
