Quatrefoil is a term that refers to "four leaves" or petals and applies to four lobed objects in everything from architecture to design. There's great history of this shape's use it can commonly be found in Renaissance churches and even as a decorative symbol on commissioned Marine officer uniforms. Who knew?
Besides the adorable stationary and such options I'm already crazy about, here's a few quatre-fabulous items I'm currently crushing on:
Suzanne Kasler designed rugs at Ballard Designs. My go to store does it again with these simply perfect rugs!

Outdoor furniture at Neiman Marcus. I'm pretty sure Dear Hubs would squish this purchase on price tag alone, but how fab is this furniture?

This David Yurman necklace captures the shape and classic design flawlessly. (What does Mr. Yurman do that isn't flawless?)
