Fans of London’s underground train system (and the new Night Tube, which allows some train lines to run through the night) will enjoy the latest design offering from interiors e-commerce site Made.com.

As part of this year’s London Design Festival, Made.com has created a licensing deal with Transport for London, teaming up to create a set of homeware products, from living room posters to cushions to tube map inspired rugs.

The collection is a chance to celebrate TFL’s 150 years design history and celebrate Metroland, the moment in transport history when the Metropolitan line was newly extended, during the early 20th century, enabling a new generation of London home-owners to move from the bustling city to the greener edges of London.

In addition to the homeware range created by in-house designers at Made.com, Finnish interior textile company, Vallila and London-based design studio, Loris & Livia have also created TFL inspired designs that will be on display at the festival.

Kirkby Design: The design was originally inspired by the woven moquette seating which was introduced to Piccadilly line interiors when the line was refurbished in 1997.
