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.
