Chevron dog beds and interior style
If you’re into your home interiors magazines, you might have heard that the bold lines of the chevron pattern is on trend right now. But if you ask us, this timeless design never really goes out of fashion.
The chevron is making its way into our homes again, but this pattern actually dates all the way back through history. In the 14th century, the word appears for the first time, with French (and Latin) origins. It is said to derive from its resemblance to the pattern of roof rafters.
The actual pattern itself though is much older. You’ll see the chevron in designs for ancient Greek ceramics, potteries and rock carvings. It can be seen in Byzantine architecture, too. In the early part of the 20th century, the Art Deco movement (with its strong emphasis on symmetry) brought the chevron back into fashion. For example, you might have noticed the chevron pattern in parquet flooring.
Back to the present day, and this fun, high-energy print design is proving to be a cool and contemporary way to breathe life into otherwise simply decorated rooms. There are lots of different ways to incorporate exciting chevron styles into your home – including a little something special for your beloved pooch. Let’s take a look at some examples.
You’re spoiled for choice when it comes to floor rugs with a chevron pattern. Whether you want a huge rug to take centre stage in your lounge, a long hallway runner, or a smaller bath mat, there’s a style to match your home. With a host of different colours to choose from, you could use the colour combination in the rug to inspire other items in your room, including your dog’s chevron bed.
Feeling bold? Then look out for chevron-patterned wallpaper for your new feature wall. It could give your room an extra touch of personality. If this is the path you want to go down, it’s a good idea to take it easy with the rest of the room; perhaps you could take a more neutral approach so you don’t overdo it. And you’ll need to be careful about incorporate other competing patterns into the space. So in this instance, perhaps block colour furniture would work better, including a single-colour dog’s bed, rather than the chevron pattern. After all, you don’t want to give yourself and your pooch a headache from all those patterns!
For a simpler way to make a dramatic statement, chevron curtains could be the way to go – they’re funky, stylish and practical all at once. Going for a black-and-white pair could give your room a high-contrast focal point. Especially if you have floor-to-ceiling windows or decide on full-length drapes. Alternatively, if you want to use chevron to create a calmer space (in your bedroom, for example), just make sure you select the right colours to match. You can then match up things like rugs and your dog’s bed to co-ordinate with the curtains to give you a bold, contemporary and on-trend look.
…and how about a chevron dog bed?
If you’ve got a four-legged friend at home, why not treat them to a chevron dog bed that pairs perfectly with your décor? When you’ve painstakingly created the look you want around the house, you shouldn’t have to compromise on your pooch’s décor. And if you’re a big fan of the chevron pattern, this is just another excuse to see this print again.
Bold and beautiful designer dog beds like this offer superior style for your pooch, as well as excellent durability – so it’s definitely worth the investment. Even if you don’t have chevron patterns anywhere else in your home, injecting a touch of colour with a chevron dog bed could make all the difference, especially if you’re trying to hide all that dog hair amongst a colourful pattern!
