When our designer showed this concept to the top-notch production team, the first reaction was “Why?”. The Prisma manufacturing process allows for an acrylic frame with machine precision. So then why on earth would you create a hand-drawn irregular pattern to look like wood grain? It may seem ironic, but there is a long tradition in interior design for imitation wood grain. This style called “faux bois” (French for “false wood”) was around in the Renaissance but became most popular in France in the late 1800s.

Currently Prisma offers the faux bois look in a standard mirror size 24” x 48” and in photo frames at 4”x6”, 5”x7” and 8”x10”. This very specific pattern is hand-drawn and scaled for these fixed sizes only. It can be ordered in custom sizes but the extra lead time and cost must be quoted through customer service.

The Faux Bois look was a focus of our booth at the West Coast Art and Frame exhibition in January. And Bella is proud to announce that the Faux Bois pattern is currently featured in Dwell Magazine’s March issue on newsstands now!
