Herringbone & Chevron

True Classics


Herringbone is a pattern of rectangles assembled in a distinct arrangement what resembles the bones of a fish, specifically a herring. Herringbone floors have rich history as both a traditional floor pattern throughout Europe and in classic American homes. This pattern is also found in many contemporary, modern settings.


Chevron refers to a floor with hardwood planks arranged to form continuous V patters. The ends of each board are usually cut to precisely 45 degrees to allow for the repeat of the V configuration throughout the entire floor. The Chevron pattern, a popular variation of the Herringbone, also finds its roots in medieval Europe. Chevron has also become very popular in a variety of newer architectural styles.
