1970s Moquette pattern apron

Moquette apron


We've featured the distinctive patterns of the London Transport Museum's Moquette furniture range before. If you can't get enough of these designs they're also available on a range of homewares, including this Moquette pattern apron.

The pattern dates from the 1970s and, if you haven't recognised it yet, is better known for adorning tube and bus seats around the capital. As well as the apron, it's also available on oven gloves, tea towels and ironing covers. Definitely a distinctive pattern but whether being constantly reminded of your commute is a good thing, I'm not so sure. 

The Apron costs £10.99 with the prices for the rest of the products starting at £7 for the tea towel.

The London Underground Film Map by BFI and TFL


Back in January, we featured a set of homewards and gifts based on the  London Underground Film Map, everything from a travel wallet to a set of placentas. But you can aso get the actual London Underground Film Map by BFI and TFL too.

As we said last time, this is a unique reinterpretation of the famous London Underground Map with all the station names changed to represent the past 70 years of films shot on location at or near London Underground Stations. If you're a film fan, it's a dream.

The finished item is sized at 100 x 70cm, selling for £9.95.

A classic design adapts itself to a smart bit of home design – this handmade Tube Map lampshade by The Old Lamp Shed.

Depending on the size you choose, prices start at £38.
