While we’re on the subject of leaves, it seems that we’re seeing quatrefoils everywhere these days (quatrefoil meaning “four leaves”.) Perhaps it’s because we’re currently engrossed in the TV mini-series of Ken Follett’s book “Pillars of the Earth” about the building of a Gothic cathedral in England…
or all the photos we see of Reece Witherspoon wearing her favorite Van Cleef & Arpels Alhambra necklace…
More likely, it’s all the great furniture and home decor that uses this shape to symbolize harmony, symmetry and proportion…
Wonder if any of these pieces are lucky?

I was born on st.patrick’s day and I love that it reminds me of a “four” leaf lucky clover!
Great quatrefoil collection!
PVE – I think it’s very lucky to have your birthday on St. Patrick’s Day and everyone can buy you drinks!
Wonderful inspiration! Have a great weekend 🙂
Fabulous images! love this post! I just bought two of the Go Home mirrors a couple of weeks ago.
Ooh, it’s all so lovely! I especially like Reese’s necklace.
oomph thanks you for the post! We are in good company!
This is a pattern I haven’t really been conscious of before. But I love those little tables!
Adore this shape, on buildings, jewelry and in the home! Great post!
I adore this shape —– so fun to see it created in so many fun ways!
There is a faux version of the Reese quatrefoil necklace. My daughter has one, and we love it. The real deal has a crazy price tag, and for that amount of $$$ you could have big rocks, a fabulous painting, valuable antiques, a family cruise through the Greek Islands!
love everything about this post.
