Perhaps because it's bold and classic at the same time. The zig zags demand your attention and then kind of smile at you. The pattern's popularity isn't confined to adult spaces; we're seeing more and more of it in nurseries and kids' bedrooms. Whether you're loving the trend or think it's passé, there's no denying that chevron is having its moment in the design sun.
