I thought it may be a little interesting to some to learn a little history of a motif that we are seeing alot today in modern design. It is the quatrefoil.
In History of Design class, getting introduced to something that was there all the time, then having my eyes opened to it was super interesting to me.
The quatrefoil is one of those that once brought to your attention, makes architecture a lot more interesting. Pronounced: kat=er-foil
You will see a lot of this design in old churches.
This gorgeous motif is still in tact and gives this modern
setting beautiful architecture.
Wallpaper gives a bold statement mimicking the ancient quatrefoil design.
Here you see it in wood carved flooring tiles.
So in case you have never paid attention, I think you will now begin to see this motif in many modern designs and know it has a deep root in historical architect.
