While reading through the latest issue of Traditional Home magazine, I came across an article written about Connecticut Artisan, Michael Fogg.  A former cabinet maker, he taught himself the craft of faux bois (French word for false wood) by reading at watching videos.  How incredible is that?!  There are very few artists that have a talent such as Michael Fogg.  Working with concrete and steel; creating art through furniture pieces is indeed a craft.

So, I jumped on over to Michael Fogg's website to see more of his work.  On his main page is a stunning faux bois table.  I can see a piece like this in a grand foyer or on a patio (preferably mine).

From tables, to light fixtures and planters, each piece is unique and skillfully created.  If a table looks weathered, aged or knotted, he has created such a look.  The best part of his designs are the benefits of having them indoors or out. 

To learn more about Michael Fogg, check out his website here.  In the meantime, here are some of my favorites:

Medium size bistro table (40 inch diameter table) (sold)
Burl pedestal table

Slab Bench (60" seat)
Armrest Bench
Chandelier.  This is something I can see Restoration Hardware carrying

Arbor Bench.  I would love this for our side yard with vine roses growing up and surrounding the arbor
