faux

Faux is French for fake and is used to mean imitation, artificial, or counterfeit.  Flooring products are either natural (e.g., hardwood and stone) or synthetic.  The man-made products are commonly designed to look like a natural product.  The simulated synthetic flooring products are called faux-wood or faux-stone.  Luxury vinyl may imitate the appearance of natural travertine or porcelain may be created to appear as hardwood flooring.
