French Faux Bois Tables

Quantity

About

Unique pair of Faux Bois tables from the South of France. Faux Bois (false wood) made by garden craftsmen in France called 'rocailleurs' was at its height in the late 19th Century. In 1870s Joseph Monier, a French gardener who invented ferrocement (the origin of reinforced concrete) worked in the Tuileries gardens near the Louvre and was responsible for the orangery and invented the concrete containers with reinforced iron to make them more durable when moving the orange trees around. I am always looking for remnants of these past artisans, now mostly gone. This pair of tables would be as lovely inside the home as accent pieces as well as in a garden.
