Faux was established in 2006 in Hong Kong in a tiny 300 square foot showroom in Sheung Wan selling hides, wild game products and soft furnishings. Today, Faux is a thriving boutique design house and interior design firm with a growing design and production team who work out of a 3,000 square foot showroom in Ap Lei Chau.
We design original art based products and homeware by taking the finest materials nature has to offer, combining them with original designs and exceptional craftsmanship.
Our ever-expanding homeware collections include rugs and throws, fine bone china ceramics and tableware as well as soft furnishings and furniture, glassware and lighting designs. Our mission is to help you discover a world of original, beautiful rugs, homeware and lifestyle accessories to adorn your interiors.
Beautifully crafted, our custom designed rugs are hand-knotted in Nepal, Tibet and India in silk and wool and organic materials including bamboo, agave, cactus, hemp and nettle. Super soft chromium tanned hide rugs are sourced from Brazil, exotic wildgame rugs come from Africa, and our eco fur throws are from Peru and New Zealand.
Passionate supporters of the arts, Louis Papachristou and Hugh Zimmern set up Artists’ Editions at Faux to marry their expertise in the world of architecture and interiors - textiles, ceramics and rugs – with works by contemporary artists.
Artists’ Editions enable artists to explore different ideas and express themselves through mediums not normally associated with their art, giving their work exposure to a wider audience as functional art.
These beautiful collections are growing every year, garnering much interest at home and overseas and include collaborations with Tsang Kin Wah, Wilson Shieh, Fung Ming Chip, Angela Su, Konstantin Bessmertny, Simon Birch and Richard Winkworth.
Faux develops beautiful branded gifts for its corporate clients including Swire, Jardines, BA and Joyce Boutiques.
