Vintage furniture will forever be a popular trend – fortunately it is easy to replicate by adding decorative wood appliques to stressed wood, accompanied by a wood oil for the ultimate vintage effect. Our range of flower wood carvings consist of classic medallions, Chatsworth rose and fretted motifs.


  1. Upgrade the Appearance

Bare furniture that’s been cost effective to build can be easily transformed into an opulent piece with decorative wooden mouldings.  View a selection of balmoral urns, acanthus leaves and arches.

  1. Cover Up Marksscf-hardware-leaf-carving-5101-500x554

Over time, marks and scuffs can accumulate on furniture, particularly dining tables, console tables and kitchen cabinets. Place leaf carvings such as the leaf applique wood carving over the top to hide larger marks or re-oil the wood with Rubio Monocoat.

Adding furniture appliques to furniture, particularly furniture that is quite plain, can add some character. Browse feature pieces that are intricately designed such as the king size swan neck or carved scroll frieze to line the edges of tables and headboards.

  1. Make it Look New

Furniture restorers can benefit from decorative mouldings at SCF Hardware to transform worn furniture. Our wood swag and ribbons are simple and elegant for a traditional twist.
