This moquette represents true class and pioneering aspiration because it’s a seat covering which would have only been seen by the chosen few. And those few were air travellers, at a time when air travel for the public was rare. From 1957 until 1974, British European Airways (now British Airways) operated short-haul flights from London Airport, which we now know as Heathrow. Passengers would gather at the London Air Terminal in Cromwell Road and be transported by bus from central London to meet their plane. It was an inspired shuttle service and the quirky one-and-a-half deck AEC Regal 4 coaches were draped with this rather gorgeous golden striped moquette. The story of this design is as joyful as the moquette itself and will add a touch of globetrotting grandeur to your home.

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! Our home furnishings are beautifully finished with high quality zips and intricate stitching to stand the test of time. Available with a duck feather or hollowfibre inner. The cushions are 40cm x 40cm.

Care Instructions

Moquette is super-duper tough. If it gets a bit dirty, a good firm brush should do the job... For something really stubborn try some carpet cleaner. If in doubt - drop us a line.
