The classic Greek Key motif has burst upon the scene this Spring at High Point market in such a comprehensive way that it seems like all the manufacturers got together and decided that this was “the year” for the classic design element to reign supreme.
The motif was on everything from case goods, to mirrors, fabrics, and trims.
This fantastic table was a bold usage of the old school element that was given a fresh new interpretation by the addition of the nail heads as trim. I LOVE it !!
Even lighting was trimmed up with the stuff.
Eastern Accents served up a beautiful collection featuring our favorite fretwork in several different cvaristions. There use of flat trims and textures was perfection in creating these classic pillows and bedding. .
Mirrors at Global Views sported a circular take on the usually square key.
Greek Key trim tape was used in every conceivable combination and direction on upholstered goods and throw pillows as well as on screens, mirror frames, upholstered tables and lighting.
Mary McDonald used it in several unique ways such as this banding on her beautiful settee that was part of her collection for Guy Chaddock. It was stunning.
The key was also evident an many different upholstery fabrics but I really fell in love with this trellis version.
My own admiration for the Greek key motif is evident in my drapery hardware collection for Helser Brothers. These pieces were a “must include” for me when building the collection and I am so happy to see that a collection that I designer almost 3 years ago is so relevant today. I adore my Greek key finial. It can be hung facing up or down and can also be used as a tie back.
My Greek Key medallion is a super versatile piece of the collection. I wanted to give designers the maximum flexibility possible for them to use each piece in the collection in a variety of ways. These medallions have screw holes at all four corners and can be connected with the addition of a small bracket to create an endless combination of designs suitable for whatever your design needs may be.
Here are just a few of the variations that you can choose.
You choose where to attach the appropriate brackets and it’s ready to hang.
