Lovely Herringbone Floors

January 15, 2013 § Leave a comment

I have a design crush on wood herringbone floors, really herringbone anything. I’m especially fond of wide planked, slightly worn herringbone floors that make you think of beautiful French apartments, or more traditionally, European chateaus. I find herringbone patterns very elegant, yet masculine, which strikes a nice balance.

Herringbone and chevron patterns are often used interchangeably but they are not the same, although I do love both.  The herringbone pattern has staggered planks where as the chevron’s planks meet at a center line. Chevrons are cut on the diagonal while herringbone is not.
