Bold, geometric, instantly recognisable... upholstery doesn't get much more iconic than moquette. But these vibrant designs are no longer confined to tube and bus seats all over the capital — they also adorn a range of highly covetable goodies in the London Transport Museum shop. And, for four days only, it's all 25% off.
This nifty discount applies to a kaleidoscopic array of moquette-themed fashion accessories and homeware between Friday 26 and Monday 29 November — just in time for your Christmas shopping. So whether you want to deck your halls in Barman and Greenline, rock S-Stock socks at that office party, or treat a loved one to a little bit of Elizabeth line-flavoured luxury this holiday season, now's the time to get browsing.
One of our favourite moquette-themed marvels this year is this Routemaster lambswool scarf. Its heritage-inspired design makes it an incredibly chic piece for chilly winter days, and there's a matching lambswool throw, too. The throw's also available in District line moquette, for anyone who prefers a more retro aesthetic.
The shop's moquette socks-in-a-box is always a winner, too. Choose between vintage and modern designs, or opt for the 12-pack and get both. You could even split 'em up for stocking fillers and Secret Santa gifts (and, hey, no judgment if you want to hold onto your favourite pair for yourself).
Other accessories include tote bags, face coverings, and even baseball caps, and there's plenty of great stuff to adorn your abode as well as your person. Like this incredibly jazzy — dare we say kitsch? — Kensington armchair, pictured above in District, and available in a variety of moquette prints.
Sofas, footstools, cushions and cube storage boxes are also available (as are moquette mugs, if you'd prefer to incorporate a subtler nod to London's transport network into your home decor). You can even buy authentic moquette fabric by the metre and upcycle something you already own!
All of this and so much more is waiting to be discovered at London Transport Museum's online shop (fair warning: with its rare and decommissioned designs, not to mention its wealth of original Underground memorabilia, this treasure trove is a real time-suck for transport history buffs).
Click here to have a browse, and don't forget to check out between 26 and 29 November for 25% off all things moquette.
