faux bois rugs at Pottery barn

Stemming off of the post below, don't think it's just the "teens" that get all the faux bois fun, the "older" Pottery Barn also has some new fun faux bois items. Grace at Design*Sponge sent us a tip on this fantastic door mat she got recently (see her post here) I have been looking for a new one and this might just be the answer. There is also a new green faux bois rug that fellow woodnut Tiffany S just got this one in the runner version (thanks tiffanyS and Grace!)
