They definitely aren’t a new type of design but are making a comeback. The most widely used pattern is that with wide stripes, which can even be multi-colored. The zigzag of the chevron is considered graphic and bold. It acts as a great accent which can add a beautiful appeal to the room. Just be careful not to overdo with the usage of this pattern, otherwise it could make you dizzy.
