The Greek Key motif is an important element of Neoclassical architecture and design dating back to Ancient Greek times. Also known as a meander (named for the twisting and turning path of the Meander River in Asia Minor) it was one of the most important symbols in ancient Greece; symbolizing unity, infinity, and the eternal flow of things. The Greek key motif can take a number of different forms; it is commonly comprised of a series of right-angled interlocking lines, forming either a continuous spiral, or a maze-like network of broken and connected lines. The classic design was a popular embellishment on pottery, armor, architectural friezes, and many other works of art.
Today, the Greek key is used as a fashionable embellishment in both exterior and interior design and is especially prevalent as a decorative border. Whether used to make a bold statement, or as subtle addition to your design — we love how the Greek key motif can be used to transform a space.

Get inspired by Atlanta-based designer, Suzanne Kasler‘s new vision of Low Country Style, reflected in the Southern Living Idea House 2014.
The house, located in picturesque Palmetto Bluff, South Carolina, is beautiful with an open floor plan and refreshing decor.
The living room is defined by two separate seating areas and sets the tone for the light, fresh decor seen throughout the house. Suzanne “dressed-up” the room with floor-to-ceiling curtains, layered rugs, and a pair of Large Percival Chandeliers.
The master bathroom has a spa-like feel and is designed as the perfect place to relax. The room is centered on a free standing tub and the Morris Small Lantern.
Suzanne made brilliant use of a small space opposite the upstairs guest suite, creating a bunk room featuring the Graves Pivoting Sconce.
The downstairs powder room, featuring the Boston Functional Library Wall Light, adds a fun pop of color to the house and is the perfect place to freshen up.

The distinct beauty and soft glow of alabaster has made it a popular stone since ancient times. Because it is soft and easy to carve, it is commonly used to create decorative objects and lamps.
Alabaster is formed through a natural process of reoccurring evaporation, creating the marbling of colors that is unique to each stone. The beautiful color variations in the stone can range from pure milky white and pale pink to warm burnished rust, peach and many colors in between.
The alabaster used in our fixtures is real, naturally formed stone. Each of our alabaster fixtures is unique, with varying shades, irregular veining, marbled tones, and a look that is simply brilliant!
