A new batch of framed agates!

A new set of 12 framed agates, in a beautiful sapphire blue color.  Sold individually.

Our framed agates are creations of nature, and are one of a kind.  This is what makes them so special and unique.  As a natural stone with crystalline structure, it is often difficult to capture in a photograph the variety and richness of color and grain pattern that is evident to the naked eye.  Flash photographs capture the brilliance of color and the special way in which the agates interact with light, but at times make the colors appear more saturated than they appear to the naked eye.  Please carefully read the color description of the agate in each item listing, and do not hesitate to email if you would like additional information and pictures.

Playing around with the groupings - here is a collage in picmonkey (it cuts everything down to square, but fun to look at the arrangements!)

Same agates, grouped in two sets of 6. They all work together beautifully, and each one has its own character and interest.

For more information, please contact Holly at Quatrefoil Design.  These will be launched in the store early next week (October 22).

New to the store - whimsical watercolor and pencil art

New in the store -

One of my new favorite discoveries! I absolutely adore this series of abstract watercolor and pencil art.
This charming art, created by an Atlanta area artist, is collected by several lead Atlanta designers and architects. The whimsical and lyrical lines and pops of color make it the perfect addition to a bookcase, a gallery wall, or a new collection.
To see the entire collection, please visit

New line of intaglios, in soft launch phase!

We are in the soft launch phase of our new line of intaglios.  After our original intaglio artist retired, we searched for 18 months for a new craftsman whose work was of the same level of quality as our previous supplier, and finally found just the right person whose quality is simply outstanding - exactly what our customers have come to expect from Quatrefoil Design.

We are so pleased with the new line of intaglios!  The intaglios themselves are reproductions based on a private collection of antique intaglios, and we have been mapping over our designs to the new intaglios with wonderful results.  We are using the same signature intaglio frame as before (it is custom created for us); it has a wonderful presence that works perfectly with our lovely intaglio designs.

The Charlotte design in our signature gilver (warm silver) hand leafed frame, shown in our large size (17 5/8" x 21 5/8" outer frame measurement)  

The Charlotte design in our signature gilver (warm silver) hand leafed frame, shown in our small size (12 3/4" x 16" outer frame measurement) 

A set of three ordered recently by a customer.  We love the combination of the Paris, the Charlotte, and the Faith. (This picture came out a bit dark, it was taken without flash on a rainy day).

For more information, please email  To see our wonderful intaglio designs, please visit  Each item is made to order, so we can do just about anything - any size frame, any size mat opening, any intaglio design (an upcharge may apply).

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!
