It's ALL Greek Key to me!

Meander-Greek Key Design   

The meander motif took its name from the river Meander, a river with many twists, mentioned by Homer in Iliad. The motif is also known as Greek key or Greek fret. Meander was the most important symbol in Ancient Greece, symbolizing infinity or the eternal flow of things. Many temples and objects were decorated with this motif, and it is considered that there is a connection with the Cretan labyrinth.

This design is everywhere in today's decorating. Most commonly used in textiles, the design element is showing up as accents on furniture, giving us many options to incorporate this versatile graphic in our homes. Greek key has often been considered a motif for traditional d├ęcor. But by uing it in bright bold colors like pink and blue, it becomes more modern.
