Zig Zag motifs have been picking up speed in home design for more than a year, appearing on a wide variety of surfaces from tile to fabrics. Sharp edges and highly graphic quality give the motif a fresh youthfulness even though it has been seen in architecture for more than 500 years. Small scale chevron patterns look elegant and refined. On a large scale, zig zag home decor is a bold, modern choice whether it’s based on white alternating with a neutral, or another combination of hues. The Zee chevron Tempaper Wall covering [top] is a good example. Surprisingly, it is a stick-and-peel product created by set designers. A quick way to refresh a wall, it also can be used to cover a door, cabinets, a ceiling or paneling. Made in the USA, there are five colorways offered by Module R. Each roll is 20-inches wide and 33-feet long.
Zig zag is a catchall term for two slightly different forms. One is the chevron which matches diagonal ends to make an unbroken line. The sister style is herringbone, which features flat ends stacked against diagonals to give a stepped, almost a woven effect (often used for flooring and tile). The two are very similar and it’s often necessary to look very closely to distinguish between them. Whatever. I found so many zig zag looks I loved, I put them in a slide show — otherwise this post would be too long!
