Chevrons – also sometimes referred to as ‘zig-zag’ – patterns have been around for a fairly long while now and they don’t seem to be disappearing, but I for one couldn’t be more pleased; because I love them!
You name it – they’re there – in artwork, interior design, on upholstery, in our clothing, in our accessories, party ware and stationery. They’ve even been embraced by companies through their branding and advertising campaigns.
The chevron pattern has spanned the decades first making their appearance in early works of art including pottery designs and on rock drawings.
They’ve evolved somewhat now though as I’m sure you’ll agree. I love the modernity of them. The sharp crispness and clean lines.It’s an easy design. Its clear and not fussy.
To me, chevrons ooze contemporary ‘cool’.
Famously renowned as having been adopted by Missoni as their brand pattern of choice – it has featured in publications, online, and on our high streets for a fair while – but now they’re EVERYWHERE!
So we can all have a piece of the chevron action!
I don’t know why – but they call to me – and the lure is made even more tricky to resist when they’re used in such wonderful pieces and in such an array of bright and beautiful springlike colours.
I just love my little chevron accent cushions in our master bedroom by Betty Jackson.Black at Debenhams – (chevrons and sparkle! – divine!)
Plus this rather fabulous phone case by Kate Spade at Selfridges
