Herringbone & Chevron Design Trend

 

What is Herringbone?

Herringbone is a pattern that is composed of rectangular pieces of equal size, arranged in a zig-zag, pattern. The perfectly cut rectangular are staggered slightly, so that the end of one plank meets the side of another.

Herringbone is not to be confused with a ‘Chevron’ pattern which is similar. The easiest way to differentiate the two is: Chevron is an inverted ‘V’ whereas Herringbone resembles a broken zig-zag pattern.

How can I use Herringbone?

Herringbone can be used in a multitude of ways with a multitude of products. You can create this classical pattern with flooring tile as well as walls; make them large scale or small – the choice is ultimately up to your own design aesthetic.  Explore some of the collections below which can be found at Bedrosians.
