What is a herringbone pattern?
Herringbone is a geometric pattern made of equal size rectangles. The rectangles are placed in a zigzag at a 45° angle to each other and resemble the bones of a herring, hence the name. The herringbone pattern is commonly used in interior design – from floors to tiles to textiles and wallpaper, and is one of the most classic and timeless elements you can add to your interior.
Quite often the herringbone pattern is mistaken for the chevron pattern. The main difference between the two is that herringbone blocks are always 90° rectangles and form a zigzag pattern, whereas chevron blocks are cut at a 45° angle and create a V pattern.
