Traced all the way back to rock carvings and pieces of pottery from a bygone era, the chevron pattern remains one of those designs that never really went out of style. Moreover, if it reminds you of the military or police for some inexplicable reason, we’ll tell you why. Several countries use chevrons as badges or insignia in military and police uniforms.
But that doesn’t answer the basic question – what is chevron and where to use it in your home interiors. Well, the chevron is an inverted V-shaped pattern that flows smoothly. And as to where you can use it, we could probably find use for it in every part of your home. But to help you get started, we’ve scoured Livspace homes and found where and how chevron has been used. Read on and get inspired!
