I’ve loved quatrefoil patterns for some time now. Maybe it’s because of their symbolism – quatrefoil means “four leaves” and the pattern represents good luck. Who couldn’t use a little of that vibe?
Maybe it’s the repetitive symmetry, kinda like the imperial trellis trend I blogged about here.
Maybe because there’s a historical familiarity to the design – it’s been a common theme in architectural and Christian symbolism for centuries.
Whatever the reason, I can’t get enough of it. The good thing is, it’s popping up all over the place.
While I was working on an On-Line Design Consultation this week, I chose a quatrefoil mirror for above my client’s entry table. The one my client and I loved was over $500 from Horchow. Then I found a similar mirror from Lowes for only $65. Score!!!
How do you feel about the quatrefoil trend?
