Chevron. The dreaded print that has been plastered all over home decor items in a flat, high contrast way. You’ve seen it on pillows (many pillows), bedding, throws, glasses, and trays. If a company wants to make something “contemporary,” they put a chevron pattern on it. Back 8 years ago, it felt fresh and fun; now, we’d rather not see it at all. But as all things in life, it’s important to have an open-mind. We took on a challenge to see if chevron could be used in an appealing way that took this tired trend into a new direction.

These are our three favorites that we found and why they made this tired trend work so well.
