Faux Library isn’t a library at all, but a collection of Marc Meyer’s taste in magazines and books, everywhere from new to vintage. As a successful set decorator for many years in series television, Marc knows how the camera and actors need those layers of details to help create a mood and tell a story. Marc’s passion for books and his hobby for making faux books grew into the successful specialty prop house it is today.
From individual books to 20 feet of hardcovers, all hollowed out to be lightweight, Faux Library has it. We all know how heavy boxes of books can be and lugging those on and off set is a pain. On behalf of set dressers everywhere, “Thank you Faux Library!”
Hand-cut Styrofoam and paper maché mockups are covered with care to replicate the look and feel of period books and capture the style needed for each set. You can also find real books, even rare ones if you need them. Additionally there are collections of magazines such as Time, Life and National Geographic.
Faux Library has grown over the past few years to rent not only books but also high-end desk dressing, like executive-style leather office furniture. New items come into the show room regularly, and designers snap them up. As soon as items arrive, they are out the door and onto a set.
Marc’s distinct taste gives an edge to Faux Library’s collection. From mid-century to Danish modern furniture, you will find a fresh selection of chairs, desks, bookshelves and accessories to choose from for decorating a library, bookstore, executive office suite, and even the Oval Office.
