Chevron: One Pattern, Ten Resources

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. Because we are standing at the tippy-top of this zigzag trend, let’s take a look at some sources from our Marketplace for bringing chevron into your own home.
