I think Carrie over at Apartment Therapy Family hit the nail right on the head when she referred to chevron as the “skinny jeans of the design world.” This geometric pattern has risen to enormous popularity, popping up on wallpapers, rugs, wall coverings, upholstery and DIY projects running the gamut from coat racks to chalkboard refrigerators.

This Elmhurst-based company is a fun place to create area rugs, runners and carpet designs of your choosing. Shown here: the SOPHISTIKAT , a floor covering that reinterprets a traditional Ikat design into a grid-like pattern.
