New in the store: Antique French documents

I am very excited to introduce the newest offering in the Quatrefoil Design store, framed antique French documents!  These are one of a kind, and framed beautifully in a custom aged gilver frame.  All were written in the 18th and 19th century, with beautiful script handwriting.  Whenever I see an antique document like this, I wonder what the life of the author was like hundreds of years ago...

As always, please feel free to email for additional photos or close up pictures!

New items: Architectural Renderings

We worked closely with an award winning architect to create these stunning architectural renderings. The original was painstakingly handdrawn using an antique architectural element as reference. A limited edition of these beautiful renderings were professionally created on archival paper. These are the first of a series that were created to look beautiful hung as a set - in art wall format. They would also make an excellent addition to any grouping of framed items.

We are in the process of getting the first group framed. All of these designs are hand signed by the architect, numbered, and framed in your choice of gold, silver, or gilver frame.

Introductory pricing available. Please inquire for more details - Please note that the watermark on these images is for digital copyright reasons only - the actual renderings do not have the lettering on them.

Monogram styles for pillows

I have always loved monogrammed and embroidered pillows, and am very excited to be able to offer pillows that are absolutely top notch quality in construction. These are professionally made by a monogram company with professional equipment; the thread count of the embroidery is very high.

Here are some monogram styles that we are offering on our pillows. Which is your favorite?

Sneak peek - new embroidered pillows

We are very excited to be launching a new line of embroidered pillows, all meticulously crafted to the highest standards. After all, we would never put anything in the Quatrefoil Design store that we wouldn't put in our own homes!

The Wellesley is a one of a kind, created custom with your monogram. Although we have a great selection of neutral and contrast linen colors, it is possible to customize this pillow with your own contrast color fabric, and we will match the thread color of the embroidery to coordinate with your fabric. The example shows the French pleat option on the edge; this pillow is also available with flange and corner pleats.

The Princeton pillow, with laurel detail and monogram and microcord on the edge. This pillow, at 16"x20", is the perfect size to go on an arm chair, in the middle of a sofa, or on a bed.

The Stanford, with a beautiful Celtic knot pattern, it sized at 16" x 26", and is finished with a flange edge and pleated corners. This example shows a custom design by a customer with fabric that matched their bedding. We offer a great selection of neutral and contrasting fabrics; any of our pillows are available with customer's own material.

The Davidson, sized at 22" square, is incredibly versatile. It can be used on a sofa, side chair, or bed. In fact, we think it is the ideal size on a king bed with euro shams - the 22" size goes perfectly with the 26" euro shams. The design shown in this picture is our Calligraphy Flourish, with frayed edging. This can be created in any color or thread combination! It is also available with a custom embroidered monogram.

We are hard at work developing samples with a beautiful array of neutral colors and combinations...stay tuned! Please visit the Quatrefoil Design store for more information - - or email us at

Beautiful arrangement

We picked up an order today, which is now packed up and on its way to the client.

Here is a picture I took of the arrangement right before it was packed (a quick little picture - sorry for the glare) - I think this is a striking arrangement of three. These are the large size, 17 5/8"x 21 5/8" outer measurement. From left to right, Ansley/Brandon/Paris.

Intaglio as accessory

We are constantly thinking of new ideas at the Quatrefoil Design store, and are particularly excited about our newest offering, 'La Petite'.

This charming piece measures 7.5"x7.5" and is 2" inches deep, so it stands on its own. This enables it to be used either as an accessory or as part of a series on a wall.

It is available in any of our frame finishes and mat colors, or in the new styles shown in the two previous pictures - with the shadowbox effect, and the 'rough luxe' look where the inside frame in unfinished for a rustic touch.

We think it would look great in a bookcase, to give sculptural interest.

One of our clients displayed her 'La Petite' on a side table.

A glorious display of all of our frame and mat offerings look beautiful on a mantel.

As always, please email if you have any questions, or want a custom color combination - To see more offering from the Quatrefoil Design store, please visit
