The Greek key motif is a popular graphic that is often found in various design elements. It is symbolic of infinity and unity and was used throughout ancient Greece for decorating. This Greek key pattern visually mimics the fluid movement of an ocean wave.

In interiors, Greek key motif has often been used for borders around rugs and walls, as pattern on textiles and for various features often shown on furniture. So, if you want to transform a room to fit the causal feel or a more formal look, Greek key motifs are a nice option to try.
