Still Loving: Zig Zags

Some trends gets played out quickly and die a quick death. Others linger in such a way that the words “classic” and “timeless” begins to get inserted before them.  This is how I feel the zig zag is developing.  Super hot and trendy, but really a very easy to incorporate pattern into just about any space and one that doesn’t scream “2009! 2009!”.  Just think about Missoni. They’ve built a whole luxury brand on the zig zag! Plus, I just like saying zig zag.

A few favorite items and images for you to consider:
