Meet The Playmat: The Roamer
The Roamer is one of three vintage chevron designs in the Totter + Tumble collection. Designed in a warm near neutral tone, it unrolls to sit timelessly in well-considered family homes as a rug alternative and is continually one of our best-selling designs.
The Colour Palette
For the colour palette, The Roamer takes a warm, dove grey hue for the background, steering away from the true grey 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 for centuries, 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.
