A motif of the past reemerges as one of the top fashion trends. Geometric shapes are popping up all over the market, but the print that we all can’t get enough of is chevron. The zigzag pattern is everywhere- pillows, dresses, cell phone cases and custom window treatments!
To say, chevron is a timeless pattern, is meant quite literally. The zigzag pattern dates back to 1800 B.C. in Greece. The print originated in pottery, furniture, and other interior items. The Art Deco Movement, in the 1920’s and 30’s revived chevron print and was popularized by home décor and clothing items.
Today, chevron is back on the market and more prominent than ever. Why the obsession with the simple zigzag print? Well, for one, it’s suited for home décor items, especially window treatments. Chevron print adds textural interests without being overwhelming, making it a great print to pull into your homes décor. Secondly, there is something aesthetically soothing about symmetrical and linear patterns when used throughout the home.
