This symmetrical, elegant, and simply brilliant design has been around for centuries and we can’t get enough of how it’s being used in today’s modern interior design world!


The quatrefoil is a classic shape used in architecture throughout the Gothic and Renaissance eras.  Its ornamental form, resembling a four-petal flower, has certainly withstood the test of time, being used more frequently in modern interior décor.

The chair back on this Alexandra Chair by Suzanne Kalser is a beautiful application of the quatrefoil in design.  This elegant motif can also be found in rugs, fabrics, wallpaper, light fixtures, and furniture.  The classic, yet modern, shape has been updated to fit many design schemes. Whether used to make a bold statement, or as subtle addition to your design — we love how the quatrefoil can be used to transform any room!
