Faux Bois, aka false wood, is popping up all over the place. This rustic imitation of wood grain may conjure 70’s flashbacks for some, but in small doses it can have a charming, rustic effect. Here are some of our favorite options, from a retro lampshade to funky wrapping paper.

 

This eerily realistic vinyl placemat from the MoMA store makes it easy to knock on wood at the dinner table. $13.
