Chilewich-Faux-Bois-Placemats

We don’t remember much from French class outside of “oui” and “Grey Poupon” but we know that when we hear the word “faux” we usually don’t get too excited. Who wants a fake anything?  Well, when the faux version is more practical and far more useful we can make an exception. This is the case with these Faux Bois Placemats. Translated as “fake wood,” these digitally printed mats resemble actual wooden eating stations. Plus, since they are digital prints (though you can’t tell til you get up close) you can use them both indoors and outdoors and easily wash the spilled BBQ sauce right off. They come in birch, driftwood and walnut and will add some rustic appeal to whatever your next meal may be, even if it’s McDonald’s take-out or SpaghettiOs.

 You can’t have a fall evening without a fire. And you can’t have a fire without a Cowboy Cauldron. They’re built from solid plate steel, meaning they’ll last a lifetime or two and they come in four different sizes with elevated basins that can be adjusted to any height. We’re going with The Urbaan Cowboy® because it’s perfect for entertaining at home.  With a 30″ diameter basin, it is more than large enough to have a nice fire, but still small enough to pack into a pickup truck and take it with you.  Can you imagine the envy when we bust this puppy out at a tailgate or the beach? We haven’t seen a more handsome fire. You?  Best of all, Cool Material readers get an exclusive deal.
