FAUX BOIS

FURNISHINGS - FAUX BOIS
THE TECHNIQUE OF FAUX BOIS WAS ALREADY USED DURING THE 17TH CENTURY IN SPAIN, PORTUGAL AND ITALY. IN THE 19TH CENTURY THIS TECHNIQUE WAS REDISCOVERED IN FRANCE. FEW FRENCH ARTISANS MASTERED THE SPECIAL CRAFT TO IMITATE THE APPEARANCE OF A WOODEN SURFACE. STILL TODAY YOU FIND ANTIQUE BRIDGES, PLANTERS, OUTDOOR FURNITURE, BIRDBATHS AND ORNAMENTS ALL OVER EUROPE. FAUX BOIS WAS ALSO EXTENSIVELY USED TO DECOTRATE BUILDING FACADES.
