HOT TRENDS – Chevron Patterns – History Repeats Itself

As a designer, I keep up on all the hot trends in the marketplace. One that just keeps popping up everywhere I turn is the Chevron Pattern.  Believe it or not, this pattern has been around since approximately 1800 BC, as seen in recovered pottery designs; but it has never been as popular as it is today. The Chevron Pattern is a beautiful, bold graphic motif that can be found adorning everything from clothing and dishes to home décor; you name it, it’s out there – in a variety of exciting color schemes.  I hope that these Chevron Pattern designs will inspire your creativity!

There are tons of beautiful Chevron Pattern fabrics, and they can be drapery or upholstery weight.  The possibilities are endless when you go custom!  For the best results, always consult a professional interior designer to make sure you are not going overboard with the latest trend.  Sometimes less is more, but a trained eye will get it right every time.
