The quatrefoil and trefoil motif appeared a few seasons back and achieved bigtime status when it graced the back of Suzanne Kasler's Alexandra chair for Hickory Chair. This High Point market, the ornamental petal design reached critical mass, and was seen on side tables and mirrors. The easy to use familiar design accent is a welcome addition to the nature-inspired landscape.

With a pinched edge and curved leg, a new matte brass quatrefoil side table from Mr. Brown has character

Century Furniture's Tilden Drinks Table in a cerused oak finish with a triangle stretcher at the bottom makes a practical side table

The Harper Side Table from Noir in Elm has enough surface area for a book, glass and your ipad

I love the quatrefoil, too! It is at once modern and old world. Picked this Visual Comfort ceiling light fixture for the master bedroom in my new house -

back in the 16th century the quatrefoil symbolized the first 4 chapters in the new testament, MATTHEW, MARK, LUKE, AND JOHN. the trefoil, the FATHER, SON, AND HOLY SPIRIT. did a little research on why i was fasinated with these shapes, besides the gothic era that they represented....who knew?????

So funny I should see this now. I was with the ladies from Oomph last week and it seemed they were all sporting quatrefoil necklaces and earrings! Beautiful pieces!
