Ever wished your living room or kitchen looked just a little bit more like the tube carriage you get on every day? Well, you're in luck — you can now get coasters and placemats designed to look like the speckled flooring of London Underground carriages.

The coasters and placemats, made by Swiss design duo Loris Jaccard and Livia Lauber (AKA Loris&Livia) are available online and at DesignJunction this weekend, along with other transport-themed products.

It's part of TfL's new range of homeware products, launched in collaboration with several designers and brands, and inspired by posters, artwork, fixtures and fittings from the transport system.

Finnish design company Vallila has come up with soft furnishing items including the bus design cushion (top photo) and this Baker Street tote bag:

We're also fans of this Underground line-inspired cushion cover:

Valilla products are available to buy through the London Transport Museum shop.

Elsewhere, Made.com has launched The Underground Collection, which includes lamps, rugs, posters, chairs and cushions all inspired by the London Underground.

Take a look at the 'Beck' rug, no doubt named after a certain cartographer:

Or how about a chair based entirely on the Piccadilly line moquette?

The full Made.com. range is available online only.

TfL will be officially launching all of the new products at DesignJunction, 22-25 September at Granary Square in King's Cross. Ticket information for DesignJunction is available here. Visitors to the TfL stand can also visit Wonderground, a micro funfair by Loris&Livia — take part in the activities for a chance of winning the carriage floor tablemats.
