Chevron Pattern

Posted by Andie on March 25, 2011

I have to admit I was a bit surprised when I learned that the Chevron (an inverted v-shape pattern) has been around since before 1800 B.C.  According to scholars, some of the earliest examples of the design have been found on pottery, rocks, and shields from long, long ago.  Thousands of years later, the Chevron stripe continues to be a hot topic in the design world.  While the pattern has been used frequently over the years, it's definitely made a huge resurgence as of late.  I've been seeing Chevron walls, rugs, pillows, drapes, and furniture pop up everywhere recently!  Some critics view the look as being way too busy and nauseating, but I think that if it's done tastefully, it can be fresh, classy, and fun. 

 

What do you think of this new trend?
