Meet The Playmat: The Roamer
The Roamer is one of three vintage chevron designs. With a warm near neutral tone, it sits timelessly in beautiful family homes as an area rug alternative and is continually a Totter + Tumble collection bestseller.
The Color Palette
For the color palette, The Roamer takes a warm, dove gray hue for the background, steering away from the true gray tones which can feel cold. The fine-lined diamond pattern, in a soft off-white, sits subtly against the background.
The Pattern History
The chevron pattern can be traced back thousands of years, with excavations of ancient Greek pottery featuring chevron motifs, dating from approximately 1800 BC. More recently, chevrons in a repeat diamond formation, were synonymous of the Art Deco period, where intricate line art, symmetry and repetition were highly favoured for detailing. The classic, geometric pattern, has a vintage appeal for modern design today.
