What's the Difference Between Cornice and Coving?

A question that we're regularly asked by puzzled property owners in Buckingham, is "What is the difference between cornice and coving?" Essentially the response is that they're one and the same. If you had to make a distinction between the two, it is that covings are comparatively simple in their design, whilst cornices are far more fancy. In Buckingham in the post-world war period, the name coving was initially used for a simple "C" shaped concave moulding that was extremely popular at the time. In comparison, cornices often call for skills of a specialist craftsman in Buckingham, if they're to be successfully installed, because they are usually exceedingly ornate mouldings.
