Classic Van Cleef Necklace using the Quatrefoil Shape

The "quatrefoil" is a design motif that was commonly found in Gothic Architecture.  We think it is an intriguing, timeless shape and are loving the fact that designers are incorporating this architectural motif into contemporary furniture and accessory pieces. AND.WE.ARE.OBSESSED!

Suzanne Kasler (pictured above) shares our same admiration for this motif, and has incorporated the quatrefoil in several of her pieces, such as this Alexandra Chair for Hickory Chair. These chairs would look STUNNING flanking a console in an entry.
