Sure, it takes logs to build a fire, but bringing wood into your house seems entirely optional these days. Faux bois—or false wood, a style that first became popular in the ­early part of the 20th century—is cropping up in everything from wall ­panels and tiles to lamps and plates. Made from diverse materials like ceramic, foam, and resin, faux bois lets you create the feel of the forest inside, often at a fraction of the cost of actual wood. These items will make any room feel cozy during those blustery days of late winter.
