Crazy for Quatrefoils!

During our recent work in Italy on the interiors of the Hotel Castello di Casole we started to notice a trend.  Quatrefoils everywhere!  While this shape is certainly not new, (even the name is old meaning “four leaves”  from the Latin quattor, four, plus folium, a leaf), we love the modern twists it has taken. When we returned home, we began seeing quatrefoils in items in our Retail Store, and even in the J Banks Collection for Stanford Furniture. Take a look at what we found.

 This is a cabinet detail in the Hotel Castello di Casole.

Do you spy the quatrefoil moulding in the Visconti Bar of the Hotel Castello di Casole?

Here is a better angle

Joni fell in love with these Greenwich Side Tables at the Spring 2012 High Point Market.  Oomph creates them in so many fabulous colors and finishes. We adore this funky modern take using quatrefoils, and we can’t get enough of their creative creations!

These hurricanes are elegant and classic. The combination of brass and mercury glass is just perfection.

The Marianna Mirror is a new piece from the J Banks Collection for Stanford Furniture.  Joni based it on a chapel floor that  she saw in Tuscany (see picture above). This particular version of the shape is called a ‘barbed quatrefoil.’ A barbed quatrefoil is a quatrefoil that has triangular projections at the intersection of two adjacent foils. This mirror can come finished in any  Sherwin Williams color.  The possibilities are endless!

Where have you seen quatrefoils?  How would you incorporate them into your home decor?
