3 Fake Log Rugs & Faux Wood Carpets Sure to Fool You

Fake fur has long dominated fashion, so with forests dwindling and wood becoming a scarcer resource … will faux-wood furniture and furnishings be the next wave of mind-tricking design we find underfoot?

Floor to Heaven works on custom flooring solutions with an emphasis on material variety, color, pattern and texture, making this particular petrified-looking tree slice convincing both visually and (albeit a bit softer) to the touch.

A similarly simple round floor covering product from the creator Yvette Laduk is an even more life-like replicate of a cross-sectional tree, complete with faux bark around the edges and once-per-year rings suggesting it to be of significant age as well.

Finally, these wood-looking carpets from textile designer and ornamental decorator Arzu Firuz manage to look remarkably fragile, as if someone has hand-carved out sections of a wood-slat panels to create a stiff area rug. In reality, the material is truly soft and pliable – though your guests might think twice before stepping through the middle of your living room if it means crossing one of these curious masterpieces.
