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?

I love it too. It looks modern and fresh and yet still feels classic.

Hey Kristie… I did not know there was a name for this design. Now I have to goggle quatrefoil so I make sure I pronounce it correctly 🙂 and what a great deal you found at Lowes!!! XoXo

I’ve definitely been running into the quatrefoil shape a bit with my furniture, accessories, and fabric suppliers.

I love it! I saw someone use a quaterfoul stensil for the backsplash instead of tile and it looked fabulous!
