Term Main definition
Applique
Applique or applied is a term used to describe an applied ornamental piece or a category of light that can be affixed to a wall. It is also a decoration that is ápplied´, or stuck on, to a surface, such as crests applied to the backs of chairs. A popular idea in the early Georgian period was for faceted, carved, turned or moulded ornaments to be applied to panels of doors or the flat surfaces of cabinets. Appliqué is fabric decorated in the same way, with shaped pieces forming a pattern on the material to which it is stitched.
