I've always loved herringbone pattern - whether it's in fashion, furniture, flooring, etc. - it's one of those great classic design patterns that never goes out of style. When my husband and I took a trip to New York City a few years ago, we visited the Ellis Island Immigration Museum. I was so inspired by the beautiful herringbone tiled ceiling that spans the original immigrant processing area. I would love to have a backsplash in a kitchen or flooring in a bathroom that looks like this!
A few days ago, I was browsing through one of my favorite blogs design*sponge and happened upon a before and after posting of the most gorgeous herringbone wood dining table handmade by Sarah Summers and her father. I highly encourage you to check out the full posting. Here are a few pics from the post that I stowed away in my inspiration file:
Isn't it beautiful??? The table looks like an expensive work of art! I may try to do a similar smaller-scale side table for my living room based on this inspiration piece... -Kristen
