The Chevron Stripe

Recently we've been noticing chevron stripes EVERYWHERE.  The classic zig zag stripe is just as popular now as it has ever been! Chevron stripes have been used for centuries in flooring, architecture, design.... They have never gone out of style and are definitely hotter now than they have been in a while! We love it!!!  Here are a few of our favorite instances of the chevron stripe....
