I spotted this eye-catching chevron loveseat at one of my favorite Brooklyn shops, Caribou Baby. Not only is it a stylish sofa, but it's a comfy spot to be with your baby. Caribou's shopowner Adriane set up a breastfeeding lounge in the shop, where comfy seats like this sofa are available for nursing mamas.

Tips for adding a little chevron in your décor:Chevron patterns are best done as an accent: on the floor, as one accent wall, or as accessories like pillows or art. An entire room of zigzags might make your head spin.For larger pieces — like a rug or sofa — stick to a two-color chevron pattern in one of the classic combos (black/white, blue/white, yellow/white, red/white). Save the multi-colored chevron for accessories as a colorful pop of pattern.The chevron pattern is also called herringbone when used in in interiors. You can even find that classic zigzag pattern in hardwood floors (mostly in Europe) and in some older homes in the U.S.Chevron is definitely a pattern that commands attention. I scouted more chevron designs for the home used in many different wow ways. Take a look:

They had this same settee in the cabin we stayed in on vacation recently. IT's not comfortable at all but it is a feast for the eyes! Love it. Great accent piece.
