Let’s Greek Key All the Things…

Wednesday, October 1st, 2014

This week I started another project combining two classics: linen fabric and Greek key trim. I’m making window panels for my living room and I’ve been wanting this combo in there for some time after I realized with this project just how nice a strip of Greek key tape looks on the edge of a simple curtain.

The application has been around forever and designers use it all the time because Greek key trim is a no fail way to add elegance to decor. The term “Greek key” is used to describe several iconic boxy twisting patterns. Historically, the motif is known as a “meander” which is a decorative pattern forming a continuous geometric line.
