What was the most used motif in ancient Greece that has been found a countless amount of times in great interior design? The Geek key motif. The Greek key is a symbol of infinity and unity that was used through ancient Greece for decorative purposes. The Greek key pattern visually mimics the fluid movement of an ocean wave, yet exudes strength and order from the box-like design.
In interiors, the versatile Greek key motif has been used as borders around walls and rugs, as the sole pattern on textiles and for various features on furniture. It can be paired with various patterns for an eclectic mix, or stand alone as the focal point of a room. It can transform to fit the causal feel of a family room, or a room that is more formal.
