Loving all things Herringbone!
Chevron and Herringbone are so similar it's sometimes hard to see the difference....I decided to do a little research and share what I learned =) This would be in reference to the top picture, when it comes to wood flooring the herringbone has all the corners of the planks cut at 90 degrees. A classic chevron pattern is when the shortest edges are cut at an angle, this creates an overall straight line. The angle can be adjusted to make the pattern 'spread' out, or be very 'pointy', which is not something you can adjust with the herringbone pattern. So which do you prefer?? Chevron or Herringbone??
