Though it can be tempting to be envious or jealous of your neighbor’s new acquisition, beautifully crafted imitations of luxe materials make similar objects accessible. Block-printed draperies and passementerie, as well as trompe l’oeil textiles that dazzle, and accessories sporting rhinestones and silver plate, are exquisitely crafted to fool the eye and create desire of their own.
