Corderoy is a woven fabric with a ribbed nap. It has no stretch. Chenille is a very soft ribbed knit which is stretchy. The difference is corduroy is soft and has v…ertical lines of felt-like material. Chenille is like a scratchy, very thin synthetic material with tiny holes in it, usually used in crafts. Opinions may vary as to the "feel" of a material so the best way to tell them apart is to actually test them for yourself. Just go into a shop that sells fabric and feel them.

Pronounce it as you would FO, or Bow with F instead of B. There are three ways you can pronounce 'fawx'. The most correct English proncounciation is just as 'foe…' (IPA: /fəʊ/ or /foʊ/). You can also go for the original french pronounciation which you can hear in its wikitionary entry (/fo/). Some people say it as fox (/fɒks/ or /fɑks/) or fawks (/fɔks/ or /fɑks/). Choices two and three could garner funny looks from different people.

This question is complex to answer. Faux finishing is not a "production process" like traditionally hiring a painter to paint a solid color. Therefore it is a good rule… of thumb to figure that a faux finish is about 4-6 times more expensive than a production painter. Of course, it is very hard to give an exact price. No faux finisher can give you an estimate over the phone, they will need to see the space that they are working with. The estimate will include the cost of materials, transportation, an example board for you to keep, and labor. Labor is also hard to give an exact price because it does vary from region to region. I work out of Cleveland and Tucson. The prices are different for both areas however a standard price for labor could be anywhere from $2-4 dollars per square foot. Hope this helps!
