Get Lucky with a Little Quatrefoil

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?

      Ragan, Do you think this pattern is appealing to your clients? I’m finding that mine are not necessarily aware of it or asking for it, but they love it when I present to them as an option.
