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