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 - Chain Link

First introduced in 1951, this pattern is one of the earliest of the 'Festival of Britain' group of designs, commissioned for the new range of British Railways Standard coaches (later known as the Mark 1 Fleet). Possibly the most widely used of all of the Festival of Britain designs, this pattern enjoys widespread recognition and was a true workhorse of the era.

Records indicate this pattern bore the official title of 'Parentheses' however, as with many of our designs, this one developed a nickname amongst those that worked with it every day, ultimately leading to it being redesignated as 'Chain Link'.
