The Product

Part of our range of home furnishings made from our own line of heritage moquettes, this 40cm cushion features a hidden zip and a plush insert. The moquette itself is designed and manufactured for use in passenger transport applications and is therefore extremely durable and has great stain resistance properties. By its nature, moquette is a heavy fabric with a wonderfully tactile texture that has to be felt to be believed. Choose from a duck feather or synthetic insert and this delightfully characterful cushion will add sparkle to your sofa or cheer to your chair.

The Pattern - Bournemouth Blue

Another very recognisable pattern, Bournemouth Blue first came to life in 1967 when the line to Southampton and Bournemouth was electrified and a fleet of existing coaches was rebuilt to provide the new service. The coaches were modernised internally, with extensive use of Formica panelling and a new blue and green fabric pattern for the upholstery.

This popular design was very quickly adopted for the (also new) Mark 2 locomotive hauled coaches which were being built at the time, and went on to last as a standard fitment through the life of British Rail, only being superseded by the new designs which accompanied Sectorisation in the late eighties and early nineties.
