Seats of London

In conjunction with the London Transport Museum, which has a comprehensive moquette archive, Andrew Martin has written 'Seats of London'; a delightful, surprising and covetable guide to all these patterns, from the first horse bus to the latest Tube train. A Field Guide to London Transport Moquette Patterns Moquette is the carpet-like fabric covering the seats we sit on in London’s Tubes, buses, trams and Overground trains – and here is a brilliantly colourful guide to all its patterns. London Transport has always wanted the best design, be it Charles Holden’s superb art deco Tube stations on the Piccadilly Line, its elegant Johnson typeface or Harry Beck’s Tube map. And this pursuit of excellence has extended even to the design of the fabrics it covers our bus and Tube seats with: moquette. In the Thirties top artists like Paul Nash and Enid Marx were commissioned to design patterns; nowadays every line like Crossrail or the Overground gets its own unique, colour-co-ordinated moquette pattern.
