:lol: We bought a very cheap table. It didn't matter a jot what it looked like, so £50 delivered was fine. Made in Malasia, its top is imitation hevea ............. printed to include even the finger joints.

I wonder if we'll ever get to the point where they start printing on dovetail joints and what not onto drawers

Not quite the same, but it reminds me of the days when a handwritten letter was amateur, and anything official was always typed. Then along came computers with word processors and multiple fonts. Result - we now get computer generated and printed letters, but in a font that makes it look like it was handwritten.

Skeuomorphic design. Has been going on for a couple of millennia. There are Greek pots where the former rope handles were faithfully modelled in clay.
