Ca-razy for Chevron!
Unless you've had your eyes closed for the past few years, you have undoubtedly noticed a pattern that is back with a vengeance: Chevron. Maybe you didn't know it's "official" name, but I know you've seen it. It's classic and simplistic inverted arrow has resurfaced on clothing, walls, floors, and furniture. I feel it works with today's styles so well because it's fresh and modern, while giving instant pattern to a room. By simply throwing down a rug or hanging some drapes, you can have a mod room that's very current. I will say that it's almost too prevalent at this point. Don't get me wrong, I love it too, but it seems to be the go-to design for designers and I almost wish that we could all find a suitable replacement or addition to the graphic family. Nevertheless, here are some designs where the Chevron pattern takes center stage and as usual, steals the show:
Jonathan Adler Dining Room
Same pattern made with salvaged wood
Patriotic Chevron dress
If you too are now a Chevron addict, West Elm has a great rug (named by them as the "zig zag"rug)
that is also affordable, and should fix you right up!
