The Classics: Greek Key
The Classics: Greek Key

Above: 36242-388 from the Paramount Collection, Duralee.


With roots in ancient history, but as relevant as if it were created just yesterday, Greek key, or Greek fret as it is sometimes called, is as much at home in timeless, traditional interiors, as it is in a contemporary setting. Include this classic motif with a simple touch of trim or an elegant table lamp. Make a bold statement with a printed wallcovering or create a focal point with a statement furniture piece. Below you will find examples from Phillip Jeffries, Niermann Weeks, Edward Ferrell + Lewis Mittman, Samuel & Sons Passementerie, and a recent new addition to KDR, Lillian August Fine Furniture for Hickory White, to name a few. As always, contact your local KDR showroom for more information on any of the products seen below.
