2011 Design Trends and Herringbone Pattern Home Decor Products

Trend Alert: Haute Herringbone

While herringbone is usually reserved for twill, leather-button blazers, and brick sidewalk pavers, lately I've been seeing the chevron cousin throughout the home decor world. The distinct, v-shaped weaving pattern resembling the skeleton of a herring fish has been popping up on everything from upholstery fabrics to original artwork to toilet seat covers!

When I spotted the Herringbone Bed ($400-$700) in West Elm's 2011 Spring collection, I knew the trend had officially arrived. My favorite is the Ethan Allen Herringbone Crystal Table Lamp ($700), which has an ever-so-subtle cut-crystal pattern. I'd also love to own a set of the Herringbone Glassware ($726 for six) by Artel, but I could never bring myself to spend so much on something I'll undoubtedly eventually break.
