2. a carved ornament having four foils arranged about a common center, esp. one used in tracery

The Quatrefoil enjoyed its peak popularity during the Gothic and Renaissance eras. It is most commonly found as stone tracery, mainly in Gothic architecture, where a Quatrefoil often may be seen at the top of a Gothic arch, sometimes filled with stained glass. It’s probable that it has roots in Islamic architecture.

The Quatrefoil motifs especially in three-dimensional objects requires a high degree of mathematical skill and craftsmanship to successfully execute. As the Quatrefoil made its way to Europe, it was incorporated into buildings that are known for their grandeur for example cathedrals although if you keep your eyes open it can be seen almost everywhere throughout the United Kingdom.

We have chosen the Quatrefoil as our basis for our name “Quatrefoils” and our logo due to its long history with design and construction.
