London’s transport history inspires new homeware product ranges

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.
