Faux is a word that gets used in many wallpaper names but many still have no idea what it really means. Faux is the French word for “fake.” Anything in the faux category or with it in its name is meant to mimic a specific animal skin, material or texture.
The brick, stone, silk and wood categories are all basically sub-categories of faux. Faux brick is meant to look like real brick on your wall, faux texture is meant to look like real fabric texture on your wall, faux grasscloth is meant to look like natural grasscloth and so forth.
Please contact us if you need help determining which faux patterns are smooth or textured if it does not say so on the category page.
