I found a fantastic blog called "It's (K)not Wood"which showcases all things faux-bois. These bloggers have been devoting themselves to this trend since December 2005- their earliest post! Really worth checking out, I think you'll be surprised at some of the applications.
1stdibs.comhas exquisite examples of the finest in faux bois, which I have included pictures of below. There's a great set of concrete french faux-bois planters from the 1920's and, the obvious winner, a pair of Italian murano glass faux bois chandeliers!!! Check out pictures of it below, and admire how "natural" the many looks of faux bois can look in interior spaces.
