When it’s on cloth, a parquet flooring, the herringbone pattern receives its name in the crisscross form of a herring’s skeleton. Not to be mistaken for a chevron, a herringbone pattern is clearly created from 90-degree angles only. The geometric geometric form of a herringbone arrangement creates extreme strength. It spreads the load over twice as much area, absorbing compression.
