The Greek Key design has its origins in ancient Greece and is their most important symbol.  The Greek Key is also called Meandros of the Hellenic Key after the Meandor River in Asia Minor, which was twisty and doubled onto itself, giving a symbolic meaning to the key of the eternal flow of life.  It is seen as ornamental relief on architecture all over the world.

The Greek Key symbolizes infinity and unity.  It is the symbol of eternal life, eternal love and eternal friendship and it's the reason it is given often as wedding gifts.  The design itself is crisply graphic but unobtrusive and while it is iconic, timeless, and classic, it fares well in sophisticated, modern interiors as well.  I absolutely love the geometric formality of the pattern and I think it looks fabulous in interior design.
