18 Faux Bois items you'll love on BHG

Looks like even Better Homes and Gardens is onto the Faux Bois loving. They recently posted a slideshow of "faux bois" images- although several things they posted aren't really faux bois, but have real wood veneer. Most of the things they posted we've mentioned here previously, but there's a few goodies they like these nice graphic felted pillows. It's great to see more faux bois exposure- (faux) wood is good! Check out the rest here.

Timber Pillows at Z Gallerie

The best thing about the impending holiday retail bonanza is that there is always a ton of faux bois! First up are these luscious "Timber" pillows at Z Gallerie- We love the "fawn" version, and the chocolate is kinda sexy too- Posting will be a bit light this week as we are swamped with a few projects, and will be traveling- but keep sending us your faux bois sightings!

Woodgrain Hello Kitty!!

Oh yes- the (k)notwoody-ness continues- and we LOVE it. yes. behold. it is a woodgrain Hello Kitty. available at Urban Outfitters. Warning- the fine print says that they are boxed randomly- so there's no real telling if you'll get the woodgrain one- (maybe you can peek inside if you see it in-store...) if anyone does get one- send us pics!!
