Herringbone is a pattern with a characteristic V-shape. It originated as a weave pattern (think twill fabric), but herringbone has become a hot pattern for a variety of home designs and styles. It is slightly different from chevron in that the herringbone pattern breaks as you reverse each section, while chevron is a continuous zigzag. It’s a great pattern to incorporate into a room that needs a bit more punch or a subtle sense of visual “texture” or anything in between. It’s easy to incorporate herringbone patterns into your decor – from the architecture of a house to wall art and textiles. Below are some ideas on how to use this classic pattern in your home decor. We hope you find inspiration!
