Transforming the ordinary into the extraordinary

About Faux Artistry & Designs in Las Vegas, NV

Faux Artistry & Designs is in the business of transforming the ordinary into the extraordinary. By working directly with builders, decorators, designers and homeowners, we are able to create custom designed concepts that are in perfect unity with the dreams and desires of our clients.

Our style has a fusion feel, so whether we are working in Tuscan, Mediterranean, French, Dutch, Old World, Traditional, Rustic, Contemporary or Urban Chic, we are comfortable bringing together one of a kind designs from concept to completion. Our work is truly art on a large scale. All of our work is custom, and we never repeat a design in another home or business.

Among the several services provided by Faux Artistry & Designs, our most popular is Faux Art. We design, create and apply faux finishes to walls, trim, doors, cabinets and furniture utilizing the best techniques, materials and tools available anywhere.

From Las Vegas to Dallas to Austin to Houston, Faux Artistry & Designs has been in business for nine years. In 2006 we started our company Faux FX in Las Vegas Nevada, but when the Las Vegas economy collapsed in 2008, we moved Faux FX to Texas, Ken's home state. After years in Texas and missing South Texas and wanting to raise our children there, we moved back to South Texas in November 2012 and changed our company name to Faux Artistry & Designs.

We can take on projects large or small, residential or commercial, new construction or renovation. We have worked on homes as large as 12,000 square feet and restaurants as large as 20,000 square feet. We work with our clients, not at them. We take our egos out of the picture because we know that, unlike us, our clients will be living with our work every day. Our mission is to create the perfect space for every client we work with, and our goal is to exceed every client's wishes.
