Did you know the earliest examples of the herringbone pattern can be seen in the intricate jewellery of the Ancient Egyptian elite and in fabric originating in Ancient Italy.
In the Roman Empire, the herringbone pattern was used in road paving systems to create extremely durable and stable thoroughfares.
Today you will find these patterns everywhere from clothes, homewares, logos, artwork to flooring and beyond.
Herringbone and Chevron has become synonymous with designer spaces worldwide and is now used as a highlighted feature or complete areas for that timeless feel and look.
Because the eye is drawn to the wide part of the “V” in herringbone, the pattern conjures an optical illusion that suggests a larger area, creating a spacious feel.
