Art of Deception

These fabulous fakes are a natural choice for adding an artistic touch to your living space.



EASY TO SPOT Faux leopard is a classic, but a bit of restraint is always in order when decorating with bold spots. This Henry Link wing chair strikes just the right balance. $2,699; Saxon-Clark Interiors, Altamonte Springs; saxon-clark.com

The shapes, textures and patterns found in nature have been finding their way into home décor for centuries, and they’ve never been more current than today. But what was once taken directly from forests, oceans and jungles is now being duplicated by machines and human hands, providing beautiful alternatives to the real thing.

ROCK ON
Smooth, simple and sophisticated, the River Stone coffee table by designer Jason Phillips is crafted of resin. Available in two sizes and a variety of finishes, $950 and $1,900; shopcasanova.com 
SHELL GAME
The sculptural shape of this Four Hands resin turtle shell makes it an intriguing tabletop accent. $475; Lightstyle of Orlando; lightstyleoforlando.com and Burlap Home, Orlando; burlaphome.com
CROC MOCK

SNAKE SCREEN
Room screens are a beautiful way to define spaces, and the rich texture of snakeskin on this three-panel divider adds visual depth. $153; jossandmain.com
OUTBOUND LEATHER
Leather outdoors? A disaster waiting to happen. But the Legendary dining table by Homecrest has an imitation leather top that’s impervious to the elements. $1,816; homecrest.com
