Imagine the days of travel even before World War 2 - the images we only really occasionally see in films. The year is 1934, to be precise. Stiff upper lip, fuss-free living. ‘A job to do and a man to do it’ was very much the order of the day. The Great Western Railway was looking to increase comfort and improve the look aboard some of its  local and suburban trains. Moquette in the form of a design called Green Shell was part of the solution. The pattern is actually a simple repeat of green seashells, but the colours are delicate. And if you’re looking for a moquette with the tangible, opulent properties of a cut fabric like this, but with less obvious associations with the railways, this could be the one for you. Rich in history, but subtle enough to suit all tastes, Green Shell is in a class of its own.

Cushions are a great way to show off your transport fascination in a really subtle way. We stock a variety of styles to add a touch of nostalgia to any home colour scheme - and being cushions, when you change your room, you can change your cushions!
