Are we still doing shiplap?

LivingEtc, recently posed this question to some interior design influencers: Is “Shiplap” out of style? 

While many trends that become popular do start to fade due to their very own popularity (recall the Yogi Berra line – “No one goes there nowadays, it’s too crowded.”), some argue that shiplap still maintains a timelessness to it that will carry the trend for a very long time.

TL:DR:  Yes, but also No.

Here’s what a few designers had to say about shiplap’s use and longevity.

Hamptons-based designer Timothy Godbold: “I’m not sure if it will be a timeless finish as it has become overly popular.” “It’s always a warning sign when you see shiplap in every house.”
